In the printing industry, the requirements for product quality are high and, in a contested market, increasingly rising. The guarantee of flawless print quality is a deciding factor for manufacturers in order to remain competitive. In order to meet demands, manufacturers were previously dependent on the use of various autonomous quality assurance systems.
BST eltromat International knows the exact demands of the industry - and has thought ahead, for precise printer results and an efficient printing process. With the Increasing Productivity and Quality Center (iPQ-Center, for short), BST eltromat offers a modular product line for the central control of numerous quality assurance functions. BST eltromat integrates web monitoring, 100% inspection, spectral measurement, and further functions into a single system. You choose the quality monitoring modules individually, putting them together according to your project’s requirements.
Integrated Functions, Intuitive Operation
Uniform Operating Concept
Makes the switch between various operations unnecessary, since all iPQ-Center modules and functions are integrated into a uniform surface.
Ease of Operation
Optimally supports the machine operators during long print jobs - and particularly during short ones - thanks to quick set-up times.
Process Sequences: Perfect Flow
The iPQ-Workflow software perfectly links various iPQ-Center modules with each other.
Modular Construction According to Your Needs
The features of the iPQ-Center are always based on your needs. Cameras, image analysis functions, defect detection, additional illumination, spectral measurement, and further components can be integrated as required.
IPQ-SPECTRAL: PRECISE COLOR CONTROL DURING THE PRINTING PROCESS
One of the greatest challenges when printing is reproducing the most precise color possible or achieving the desired color quality.
Spectral Inline Color Measurement
The iPQ-Spectral fully automated, spectral inline color measurement system supports you in maintaining prescribed color standards by carrying out an inline measurement inside your printing machine. The color measurements and comparison with print samples that would normally be performed with hand-held devices after roll changes are therefore no longer necessary.
Completely automatic measurement…
…significantly supports you when setting up the machine.
…continuously monitors color data during the job.
…objectively evaluates the color data and triggers warnings and alarms if prescribed tolerances are exceeded.
…records color deviations and generates a job report.
iPQ-Spectral: Your Benefits
- Early detection and resolution of color deviations
- Documentation of color quality for your customers
- Process optimization and avoidance of waste
- Reduction of waste in the set-up process
- Direct provision of color measurement values from the inline process for color management and quality assurance
iPQ-Spectral is in a close development partnership with X-Rite, the market leader for offline measurement systems, and therefore offers the highest data compatibility with X-Rite hand-held devices.
