Best-in-Class Process Control for Packaging Web Printing Applications
Designed exclusively for packaging web printing applications, AVT’s Jupiter provides a comprehensive process control and automatic defect detection solution, with innovative UV and varnish viewing capabilities. Jupiter’s unique automatic inspection module and display, visually inspects all types of printed materials on the press, quickly detecting and alerting on defects in real-time.
The system’s superior process control ensures early warning of developing defects, detecting imperfections before they are seen by the human eye, immediately alerting the press operator. Jupiter enables higher press speeds, supports all press types, models and materials, including transparent and flexible substrates used in the packaging industry.
The Jupiter system boosts productivity by assisting operators during job make-rady, shortening production time, automating manual processes and providing valuable waste savings.
AVT Jupiter can be upgraded to the Argus Turbo HD 100% inspection configuration.
Jupiter detects defects, including color variations, mis-registration, smears, streaks, and spots. The system visually indicates the position and the type of defect detected, displaying the defect on a novel split-screen monitor, alerting the operator as to the nature and location of every defect. Jupiter’s “dual mode” capability enables operators to view the live image on one screen, and the defect image on a second screen.
High Definition (HD) Camera & x16 zoom lens
Jupiter is equipped with an advanced HD camera to guarantee best image quality, coupled with the highest quality inspection of evolving print defects. To assist operators to accelerate make-ready and help analyze print issues without stopping the printing press, a powerful high zoom lens is used and enables to zoom-in and see the smallest printed items and print dots.
Jupiter delivers consistent print quality on every job and increases overall productivity through every stage in the print process. Users achieve high ROI and save valuable time and resources with exceptionally quick press set-up and deployment. In turn, customers enjoy the benefits of immediate waste reduction, decreased resources and production costs, and preventing customer rejections.
Hazing Detection/Haze View
Unique to the Jupiter system, haze view enables detection of very low contrast defects, such as hazing or scumming as soon as they evolve. The haze view function allows operators to clearly see hazing on clear film which otherwise cannot be seen or detected prior to lamination.
Fast, easy generation for seamless set-up and improved control of quality standards.
All predefined Jupiter bundles include a rich and varied selection of optional add-on modules built to enhance and support your print inspection process, guaranteeing process control and automatic defect detection on every print job.
Faster and automated Flexo press make ready is critical in today’s short print runs and the increasing number of designs and jobs per day. To achieve faster and shorter press make ready, AVT tools include automatic register control to save valuable time, reduce waste and accelerate the production process.
AVT’s inline Inline Delta E color monitoring enables a simple, standard method of alerting on color deviation during print run
Automatic scanning, verification and grading of UPC and EAN barcodes, to ensure codes are properly printed and can be read by consumers and end users.
Additional special optic head is used, to view the back side transparent cold seal applied on press or lamination. The system enable clear view of Print to Cold seal register to ensure best product quality.
Enables detection of very low contrast defects, such as hazing or scumming as soon as they evolve. The haze view function allows operators to clearly see hazing on clear film which otherwise cannot be seen or detected prior to lamination.
Innovative switchable UV illumination module enables viewing of UV-sensitive inks and varnishes
Add-on with combined process control and 100% quality assurance capabilities; equipped with an advanced HD camera to guarantee best-in-class on-screen image quality, coupled with the highest quality inspection of evolving print defects.
