A.T.E. launches ViewAXIS Tera

A first of its kind, full print repeat web viewing system

ViewAXIS Tera – the first of its kind, full print repeat web viewing system for process monitoring on rotogravure printing machines

A.T.E. has recently launched a range of LED stroboscopes for the print and packaging sector. Branded as the StrobAXIS series, these stroboscopes are designed for various applications including printing, labeling, slitting, doctoring, die-cutting, embossing, among others. A.T.E’s lightning fast range of stroboscopes – StrobAXIS enable precise monitoring of fast moving print webs.

Through StrobAXIS, the moving web is illuminated by periodic series of sharp and short flashes. At a certain frequency the print web appears to be stationary or ‘near stationary’, allowing the operator to check the print web for any print errors. The operator can then take the necessary corrective action or actions to reduce expensive print material wastage.

Over the past few years, the print and packaging industry has become very competitive; the impetus being on improved print quality and reducing wastage of expensive raw materials. Material rejections increase rework, thus negatively affecting productivity and therefore, profitability. Printers and converters are increasing production speeds, resulting in shorter job runs. The shorter job runs and higher production speeds mean that operators/printers need tools to spot print defects. StrobAXIS is hence a new addition to the operator’s arsenal that helps combat print defects.

With deep domain knowledge built over three decades in the print and packaging field, A.T.E. is known as a source of reliable and high quality products. A.T.E. has developed

customized solutions for demanding and complex printing applications that are focused on reducing waste and improving productivity. StrobAXIS is the latest addition to this portfolio.

A.T.E. offers two models of stroboscopes –    handheld and machine mounted. The StrobAXIS’ high-powered and energy-efficient bright white LEDs provide uniform illumination. This allows operators to identify print errors on the web and take corrective action to prevent wastage. The StrobAXIS’ precise strobe control means that operators can easily match the frequency of the print web. An LCD panel is provided for display and setting/adjusting of illumination intensity and flash frequency parameters.

“StrobAXIS will help monitoring print defects such streaks, voids, bleeding, missing prints drags and holes, and more. The machine mounted version of the StrobAXIS synchronizes with the machine speed, reducing reaction time and resulting in instant error identification. The StrobAXIS range of stroboscopes complement our other offerings for the print and packaging industry such as our automatic register control AlygnAXIS, ViewAXIS Mega and Tera web video systems, and DetectAXIS print defect detection system,” said Anand Mehta, vice president – Print and Packaging Equipment, A.T.E.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
