AVT to debut HD+ label print inspection series at Labelexpo Southeast Asia

AVT to showcase Helios D inspection solution for digital presses


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.”

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.
