AVT’s print inspection technologies for the flat-sheet metal decorating reduce print waste and increase productivity by shortening make-ready time and pinpointing emerging defects early on before they devolve to scrap. AVT creates comprehensive solutions that deliver innovative, automatic 100% quality assurance and process control and are dedicated to metal decorating.

The assurance provided by advanced vision systems, optimized for inspecting ink on metal, opens the door to faster run speeds. In addition, improved quality of the printed sheets significantly reduces the demand for over-prints and re-prints – saving even more waste. AVT’s best-in-class 100% inspection systems enable fast and easy system set-up and operation performed through a guided and intuitive sequence.

AVT’s automated solutions complement its inspection systems with a full range of productivity-boosting automation. AVT’s Titan automatically inspects the metal decorated sheets for print defects in real-time. Once installed on the press, the system quickly and efficiently detects typical print defects, including color variations, mis-registration, spots, and more. Mercury digital ink controls improve color consistency sheet-to-sheet and job-to-job; Offline Setup prepares for production ahead of time, based on the PDF of the job.

As pressure for Just-In-Time production grows, these automated assists increasingly hold the key to profitable operations.
