AVT will be highlighting its comprehensive product range for quality assurance, process control, automation and efficiency systems for printing and converting at the first-ever Labelexpo South East Asia in Bangkok, Thailand, which runs from 10–12 May. AVT will be at Stand E23.
AVT enters the show as the world’s top automatic inspection solutions provider in the labeling and packaging sectors. Over 90% of the world’s top 20 label and narrow web print houses have chosen AVT as their quality management systems provider.
As part of the Danaher Product Identification Platform, AVT – along with partner companies X-Rite and Esko – has already introduced in Labelexpo Europe joint workflows and solutions for the label and packaging production value chain. Labelexpo Southeast Asia provides an opportunity to build upon these successful market launches.
AVT will offer live demos of a variety of print inspection products, including inline and offline inspection, color monitoring and barcode verification, constituting a complete workflow solution from print setup to finishing.
Printers and converters will also learn about AVT’s new 100% inspection product launches, including its best-in-class Helios S Turbo+ and Helios Turbo HD+, the world’s most advanced inspection systems for label and narrow web applications. Each solution offers unsurpassed high-resolution monitoring even at top speeds, with 100% inspection performed at full press and rewinder speeds without sacrificing superb quality assurance – meeting and exceeding print sector demands for heightened precision and pace.
AVT solutions also will play a role at partner stands during Labelexpo Southeast Asia. For example, at HP indigo’s Stand B25, an HP Indigo 6900 Digital Press will be equipped with AVT’s Helios D, a high-end 100% print inspection solution designed to meet the specific needs of digital printing in the label and narrow web markets. Helios D supports various digital printing technologies at all stages of digital production workflow, including the identification of specific defects like missing nozzles, ink dripping spots, and color changes as soon as they occur. The result is reduced waste, enhanced production and comprehensive process monitoring.
Other featured AVT solutions include PrintFlow Manager, a reporting solution ensuring that production data collected from all platforms is presented directly to overseers; production managers can monitor, analyze and control production quality right from their desktops. The process is tied together by AVT’s Workflow Link, which serves as a bridge from press to rewinder, increasing line efficiency and productivity while stopping only for designated defects. Slitter rewinders can run at top speeds and, by selecting the extraction of only critical defects, rewinder stops can be reduced by up to 50%.
AVT will also showcase Offline Proofing for scenarios where inline inspection is not feasible. SolidProof ensures that no critical errors have been overlooked in the print production process, while SoftProof inspects artwork and digital files with pixel precision, detecting missing text and graphics, incorrect fonts and text size, broken type and color deviations. CloudProof is a collaborative, web-based upstream application that reduces approval cycles by sharing inspection projects.
According to Yair Shaharabany, president of Asia Pacific at AVT, “Labelexpo in Bangkok provides an unrivaled opportunity to display our inspection and quality control solutions to many of the world’s fastest-growing print markets. As the world leader in print inspection, AVT places tremendous emphasis and resources into Asia, with significant success in recent years. The market here is emerging rapidly, with increasingly higher quality and automation demands, and we look forward to demonstrating our unsurpassed line of solutions for presses and finishing, including digital applications.”
