AVT to introduce next-generation automation and quality solutions at drupa

AVT, one of the world leaders in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, will introduce a host of new solutions at drupa, May 31-June 10 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Located at Hall 9, Stand C60, and with more than 15 systems across its partners’ stands, AVT enters the show as one of the biggest automatic inspections solutions providers in the global labelling and packaging industries.

New cloud-based quality and automation platform

A big premiere is AVT’s new iCenter Platform, a cloud-based solution for quality control automation and production performance insights. This platform provides solutions to set cross-site quality standards, auto-analyse PDF files for inspection, and extract business intelligence from the production floor with a seamless connectivity to MIS and prepress solutions for optimised automated workflows.

drupa also represents an opportunity for AVT to showcase its range of solutions for workflow automation, such as ProMIS and Zero Setup. Moreover, the company’s complete Workflow Link solution increases line efficiency and productivity, stopping only for designated defects. Slitter rewinders can run at top speeds and, by selecting the extraction of only critical defects, rewinder stops can be reduced by up to 50 per cent for vastly improved productivity.

In addition, AVT’s latest version of its Offline Setup provides quality standardisation and shortens setup time; the result is reduced waste and streamlined setup workflows, all under the same global quality standards.

AVT HeliosAVT will show off the work it has done with printing companies across the sector; for example, it will present four systems on HP Indigo presses. These include the debut of Apollo 30K, the Apollo 20K and Helios solutions for the HP Indigo 20000 flexible packaging press and HP Label press series. These solutions offer 100 per cent inspection with AVT’s ZeroSet setup feature for print and inline finishing.

Elsewhere, the new Jet-IQ, which is installed on digital presses from Heidelberg, Landa and other prominent vendors, is a quality engine that works in synergy with press controllers to maintain exemplary print quality, offering full connectivity to all steps and solutions of digital printing.

Proven inline colour measurement solutions

AVT also will introduce its SpectraLab II, a new generation of in-line spectral measurement for nearly any application, including transparent flexible, paper and cartons. Based on the proven SpectraLab, with more than 30 packaging and label customers worldwide, and AVT’s Clarios, which is used on over 700 in-line colour systems throughout the worldwide offset printing landscape, AVT’s colour management prowess offers real-time, in-line spectral measurements like LAB, DeltaE and dot gain.

Among the portfolio presented at drupa are the new Argus Turbo and Helios Turbo 100 per cent Inspection platforms for label and packaging applications, offering a breakthrough in end-to-end quality automation and workflow management. Also on display will be the company’s leading inspection solutions for sheet-fed applications such as folding cartons, metal packaging and corrugated. For the folding carton segment, AVT will feature a live demonstration of its new Apollo 30K for HP folding carton presses, while for the metal sector the company will present its Titan 100 per cent inspection solution. For the corrugated market, AVT leverages its strategic alliance with Erhard and Leimer (E+L) which will present a 100 per cent inline inspection solution at its drupa stand.
