QuadTech’s advanced color and inspection technology to be featured at PrintPack India 2015

At PrintPack India 2015 (11-15 February, India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR), QuadTech, Inc. will present a broad range of press technology solutions for packaging converters, newspaper printers, and commercial printers at Hall 10, Stand F-1A.

"Printers are facing increasing demands to improve print quality," says Hemant Desai, QuadTech General Manager for India. "At the same time, tightening profit margins are a concern for all commercial, newspaper, and package printers. The good news is that all indications suggest significant growth and opportunity for the Indian print market. Our portfolio of market-leading color and inspection technology enables printers to meet these market demands and achieve reliable, high quality output with faster turnaround times, and reduced ink and substrate waste."

Solutions for packaging
The QuadTech Color Quality Solution combines inline spectral color measurement, ink formulation data and ink dispensing technology to ensure accurate color matching. For the first time, color data is automatically shared and processed between QuadTech's inline spectral color measurement technology, X-Rite's offline Ink Formulation software, and ink dispensing systems. Color quality stays within targets and consistently high while downtime and waste are reduced dramatically.

The color targets are loaded into the QuadTech Color Measurement System with SpectralCam, which collects and maintains live spectral data inline, at full press speeds.

Quality assurance is also guaranteed with the QuadTech Inspection System, which inspects 100% of the web 100% of the time. The system can be used with opaque, translucent and transparent substrates as well as on reflective materials, detects process faults (streaks, hazing, color variation and mis-register) as well as random defects (spots, mis-prints, hickies).

The QuadTech Web Viewing System can be used as a stand-alone system, or in conjunction with the Inspection System, for real-time viewing of the moving web and optimum defect viewing.

QuadTech PDF Verification software is an option that enables printers to catch errors before they go into production, by comparing approved artwork to a printed sample, ensuring correct press setup, print accuracy and quality.

QuadTech will also highlight other products including the QuadTech Autotron 2600 with ClearLogic Register Guidance System, for minimizing waste and improving print quality for packaging and decorative printing applications. QuadTech DataCentral for Inspection, a powerful database that stores job and defect information from one or more presses and facilitates quality control decisions. QuadTech's Waste Management System takes quality control information from QuadTech DataCentral, and enables automatic control of the slitter/rewinder/sheeter to ensure that defective material is removed efficiently.
