AVT boosts inspection efficiency at the Xeikon Café

Helios Turbo HD will show advanced real-time digital print inspection and process control


Lier, Belgium, March 14, 2017 – The AVT automatic 100% print inspection solution will serve a broad range of digital print production in end-to-end workflow at the Xeikon Café Packaging Innovations 2017 (www.xeikoncafe.com), set for 28 to 31 March.
