Following is an overview of solutions that AVT will showcase at Cannex & Fillex:

Titan: 100% Quality Assurance & Process Control for Metal Decorating Applications
AVT's Titan is a comprehensive, 100% quality assurance and process control system for metal decorating applications based on the company’s advanced algorithm and sensitivities control capabilities.  When installed on presses, Titan detects the full spectrum of typical print defects, including color variations, mis-registration (including varnish mis-registration), misprints, spots, incorrect characters, streaks, scratches, splashes, scumming, edges and bends. 

Upon finding a defect, Titan’s colored light tower informs the operator, who can then take measures to correct the issue. The system also is capable of sending signals that can eject, divert or mark the defected sheet or, should the issue be widespread, stop the press feeder entirely. 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.

CoatScan: Inspection Solution for Sheet Coating Presses
AVT’s new CoatScan inspection solution for sheet coating presses is the first if its kind in the world.  CoatScan provides coating margin monitoring and sheet positioning assurance through comparison with the user’s pre-determined standards. It also offers defect detection of the overall coating area, as well as indications of coating thickness variations. CoatScan also supplies users with comprehensive reports of all monitored items.

Mercury: Ink Color Control System
AVT's Mercury Ink Color Control System precisely sets inking using a patented, digital servomotor on any new or existing litho decorating line.  Mercury can combine with an optional CIP3 Pre-setting module.  Analyzing image data from the pre-press plate results in substantial time saving and waste reduction during color make ready.

“With the metal decorating market flourishing, AVT has significantly increased our installed base in less than one year’s time, including several new partnerships with highly respected industry leaders,” said Jaron Lotan, CEO of AVT.  “In addition to introducing our new CoatScan solution for sheet coating presses, our participation at Cannex & Fillex also allows us to build new relationships in China, an increasingly important market for both metal decorating sector and the broader print production industry.”
