AVT to Show Wide Range at Labelexpo Europe

HOD-HASHARON, ISRAEL | AVT, global supplier of print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance solutions, will showcase systems for automation and efficiency supporting Industry 4.0 production environments at Labelexpo Europe, September 25–28, at the Brussels Expo in Brussels, Belgium. Company says by connecting AVT to pre-production tools—such as management information systems (MIS) or Esko’s Automation Engine—printers can define and control cross-plant quality standards, monitor production floor key performance indicators (KPIs), uncover potential improvements, aggregate data, and benchmark against defined targets.

Another featured solution is company’s SpectraLab II, an inline, automatic spectral measurement system compliant with the ISO-compliant XRGA (http://blog.xrite.com/xrite-graphic-arts-standard/) metrology standard from X-Rite, certifying the system's ability to optimize color measurement across multivendor networks, among other allowances. Offers automatic spectral measurement for nearly any application, including transparent flexible, paper, cartons, etc. Said to offer compact design, advanced color workflow management, and improved in-line-to-offline measurement correlation, SpectraLab II meets color specialist X-Rite's ISO-compliant XRGA Standard for the graphic arts industry. It is based on the SpectraLab, with more than 30 packaging and label customers worldwide, and AVT’s Clarios, which is used on more than 800 in-line color systems around the world.

The company will participate in Labelexpo's Automation Arena, where two start-to-finish lines will demonstrate—via compatible partner solutions—complete digital and conventional printing lifecycles from job creation through prepress, printing, finishing, and invoicing. AVT will showcase additional Industry 4.0 solutions at its stand, including demos of the company’s iCenter Platform, a next-generation cloud-based solution said to empower printers to manage and control quality and production standards for facilities around the world, ensuring global consistency.

For the first time at Labelexpo Europe, the company will demonstrate Helios D (digital), a high-end 100% automatic inspection system designed to address digital printing challenges such as missing nozzles, ink drips, and color uniformity—all in real time. Another key tool to reducing waste, enhancing production, and making process monitoring comprehensive, Helios S Turbo is installed on an HP Indigo 8000 label press. A similarly streamlining solution, Apollo 20K will be showcased on an HP Indigo 20000 packaging press.

The recently introduced Jet-IQ is a closed loop solution that reportedly allows digital printers to gain a competitive advantage through enhanced print quality at high speeds, reduced press downtime, and full reporting capabilities. At Labelexpo Europe, visitors can see the solution in action on a Mark Andy digital press, as well as a Gallus Labelfire.

Jaron Lotan, president and CEO of AVT, says, "Now that AVT is part of the Danaher family of companies, we have even more opportunities to work with strategic partners to collaborate on interconnected, 'linked' solutions that automate workflow while providing insight into production behaviors. As a solutions provider who has always seen advanced metrics and quality control as key components for comprehensive inspection, this leaves AVT well-positioned for the Industry 4.0 revolution."
