At Cannex & Fillex 2016, AVT to Offer Live Demonstrations of Titan and CoatScan Solutions
Hod-Hasharon, Israel – AVT, the world leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance solutions, will provide live demonstrations of Titan, an in-line 100% inspection solution for metal decorating applications and CoatScan, an in-line inspection solution for metal sheet coating applications, at Cannex & Fillex, April 27-29, 2016 in Denver, CO. Located at Booth 737, AVT also will showcase a set of workflow solutions including its Mercury digital ink color control system.
AVT’s inspection solutions reduce print waste and increase productivity by shortening make ready time and finding defects in their early stages before they evolve. Having a trustable inspection system increases the printing speed and produces higher quality of printed goods which lowers the need for both over-prints and re-prints.
AVT's Titan is a comprehensive, 100% quality assurance and process control system for metal decorating applications based on the company’s advanced quality control algorithms. Titan detects the full spectrum of typical print defects, including color variations, mis-registration (including varnish mis-registration), misprints, spots, text, streaks, scratches, splashes, scumming, edges, bends and more.
Titan’s other quality control aspects include PDF comparison and color variation tracking, as well as a generated report, called PrintFlow that enables easy defect tracing for subsequent analysis.
AVT also will demonstrate CoatScan, an inspection solution for metal sheet coating applications comprising the first of its kind in the world. CoatScan provides margin inspection and sheet alignment assurance using customers’ pre-determined standards. It also offers defect detection of the overall coating area, as well as a coating thickness indication.
Both the Titan and CoatScan solutions are connected to the customer’s workflow, with each capable of sending signals to an ejector and/or feeder, helping reduce materials waste and, in the process, save manufacturing costs.
AVT’s workflow solutions complement its inspection systems through a full range of capabilities. For example, Offline Setup enables customers to perform setup for Titan, based on the PDF of the job, which saves valuable production time on the press.
At Cannex & Fillex, AVT also will showcase its Mercury Ink Color Control System, which precisely sets inking using a patented, digital servomotor on any new or existing litho decorating line. The system applies corrections to the ink keys of digital pre-set files based on previously run jobs or digital job files, resulting in gradual improvements of pre-set accuracy. As such, Mercury becomes increasingly efficient – and therefore, more valuable – over time, reducing pre-setting, startup time and materials up to 50%.
“AVT’s presence in the metal decorating market is growing as the industry adopts new standards for production automation and quality,” said Amir Sheinman, VP of Marketing for AVT. “The printers are adopting solutions that enable them to dramatically cut waste and improve productivity through automating their workflow by using AVTs Inspection and Workflow solutions “In just the past two years, AVT has made significant progress in terms of increasing our global installation base and building partnerships with highly respected industry leaders. We look forward to furthering this momentum at the Cannex & Fillex show in Denver.”
