AVT (Advanced Vision Technology Ltd.), producer of print inspection, print process control andquality assurance and press control for the packaging, labels and commercial print industries, introduced a press control and quality assurance solution for digital inkjet presses.
Named PIQ-C (Picture Image Quality Control), the new jointly developed quality assurance solution is integrated into the Gallus Labelfire 340 digital label printing press, which is built by printing press manufacturers Heidelberg and Gallus.
PIQ-C is a print quality technology that works in synergy with the digital press unit controllers to maintain exemplary print quality, offering a comprehensive detection and correction capability. The close loop quality control system allows digital printers to gain a competitive advantage through consistent print quality throughout the print run at high speeds.
In addition to PIQ-C, AVT’s Helios Turbo HD solution on the Gallus Labelfire, provides high-definition resolution inspection along and across the web at full press and rewinder speeds—all without sacrificing superb quality assurance and key applications such as inline barcode verification.
The new Gallus Labelfire press combines the latest digital inkjet printing technology with the benefits of conventional printing and finishing technology. The digital converting system offers new standards for quality of print results.
