AVT is a producer of print inspection, print process control, andquality assurance systems, and a provider of automatic inspections solutions in the global labeling and packaging industries.
With more than 20 years of experience and more than 4,000 inspection system installations worldwide, AVT offers one of the print inspection industry’s largest R&D groups, as well as supplier partnerships with prominent printers, including key digital players such as HP Indigo, Landa and Gallus-Heidelberg.
At LabelExpo Americas in Chicago Sept. 13-15, AVT will premiere its Helios Turbo HD, which offers high definition resolution inspection along and across the web at full press and rewinder speeds—without sacrificing quality assurance and key applications such as inline barcode verification.
At LabelExpo Americas, AVT will also offer its Helios D digital press inspection system, an automatic, 100% print inspection solution designed to meet the specific needs of digital printing in the labels and narrow web markets.
Helios D supports all stages of digital production workflow, including the identification of specific defects like missing nozzles, ink dripping spots, and color changes as soon as they occur. The result is reduced waste, enhanced production and comprehensive process monitoring.
AVT’s Helios S Turbo system is integrated into the HP Indigo 8000 hi-speed digital press supporting inspection of any material, surface or reverse print. The system’s high resolution and high speed ensures print quality, data validity, barcodes and numbers tracking, as well as DeltaE color monitoring – all in one pass. Also shown will be the Apollo 20K system, which offers 100% inspection and advanced workflow options for flexible packaging on the HP Indigo 20000 Digital Press.
AVT also will introduce its SpectraLab II, a new generation of AVT's in-line spectral measurement supporting nearly any application, including transparent flexible, paper, cartons, etc. SpectraLab II offers new compact design, advanced color workflow management and improved inline-to-offline measurement correlation. SpectraLab II also features enhanced color reporting capabilities, including real-time alerts to third-party reporting systems when colors shift out of tolerance.
AVT also offers offline inspection solutions that provide quality standardization and greatly reduces setup time. Customers can set and maintain quality standards across production operations as well as between different jobs and runs, reducing the “human factor” in the inspection process. Enhanced setup consistency and suitability between operators is assured, since all settings can be initiated by the same operator for all AVT inspection systems.
Another U.S. premiere is iCenter Platform, a next-generation cloud-based product that provides answers to set cross-site quality standards, auto-analyze PDF files for inspection, and extract business intelligence from the production floor with a seamless connectivity to MIS and prepress solutions for optimized automated workflows.
