Along with well-established colour and inspection solutions for the printing industry, BVS will showcase the latest additions to their product portfolio, including Guardian RTM, a new real-time quality monitoring and reporting tool, and significant new capabilities for the ColorTrack software solution.
According to Vince Balistrieri, president, Baldwin, the name Baldwin may not yet be familiar to label and narrow-web printers, but the BVS product portfolio brings together decades of proven experience from established industry leaders in advanced colour and inspection technology.”
The year 2018 saw industry leaders QuadTech, PC Industries, and Web Printing Controls strategically united to form the new Baldwin Vision Systems. The resulting combination of businesses and technologies represents the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio available for print process automation, inspection and related services. By combining worldwide engineering resources, BVS looks to speed the pace of innovation and development of data-connected workflow solutions. Ongoing service and support for BVS technology is also boosted by the integration.
The highlights of the BVS solutions at Labelexpo 2019 include:
Defect management solutions
The Guardian PQV eliminates every defect with a more efficient, accurate, data-connected inspection workflow. PQV provides complete print quality verification from pre-press through production and reporting. With Guardian RTM real-time monitoring, printers can track and compare many different production metrics. Press managers can monitor changes as they happen, and make informed decisions about print quality, defect management, and even operator-to-operator performance.
The Guardian OLP offline proofing and inspection focuses on pre-press proofing and pressroom quality control.
Graphic-Vision 500 series web-viewing systems quickly find defects such as mis-registrations, streaks, voids, and fills. For high quality, high accuracy inspection requirements, such as pharmaceuticals, security and banknote, BVS provides solutions that meet the exacting standards.
Colour management solutions
ColorTrack software facilitates fast, accurate press-side correction of ink formulations. ColorTrack seamlessly integrates with ink recipe software to not only simplify workflow, but also dramatically reduce the number of ink corrections needed to achieve accurate, optimal colour.
InkWeigh eliminates trial and error by weighing and tracking ink corrections at the press for each client, each job.
DeltaCam provides accurate inline spectral measurements, reducing waste and ensuring all printed products are within your customers’ colour specifications.
BVS will introduce its new ColorTrack analytics software, which is designed to help printers deliver consistent, accurate colour quality and customer reports, no matter what facility, process or materials are used to produce the printed product.
