Exciting Products at Print4All


BST eltromat Italia at Print4All - New exhibition focus fits perfectly to the BST eltromat product range

BST eltromat Italia, a subsidiary of BST eltromat International, will be presenting a portfolio of unique width for quality assurance systems for the web-processing industries at this year's Print4All (former Converflex) in Hall 18 (Booth L02 M01) from May 29 to June 01 in Milan. The long-time exhibition has changed from focusing purely on converting to packaging printing, labeling, extrusion and much more. This means the wide product range from BST eltromat Italia now fits the expo even better. Presentations will feature the product segments web guiding, 100% inspection, register control, web monitoring, color measurement and management, as well as workflow and measurement of thickness and basis weight.

"Print4All 2018 is an opportunity for us to give targeted presentations of our portfolio of quality assurance for web production processes to the Italian and an international audience," explains Paolo Tamburrini, Managing Director of BST eltromat Italia. "We have experts in all product segments who competently support our customers from start to finish - from the initial enquiry all the way to final training certification - and who can specifically consider their individual requirements." They can compile tailor-made configurations based on elements from our comprehensive product range, which is designed with a modular structure and offers customers a choice between eco versions, standard systems and high-end solutions. The configurations can be adapted to suit individual customers if required. Different quality assurance systems from BST eltromat will be shown on a running Prati rewinder. Customers can enjoy here how the products iPQ-Check, CompactGuide and Tubescan Eagle View perform in action. TubeScan eagle view is equipped with QLink, the new workflow module to remove defected label or waste flexible web.

Highlights for 100% inspection, web monitoring and color measurement
BST eltromat will present the POWERScope 5000 with new features, including the wear-free electronic zoom and LED flash. This digital web monitoring system offers greatly improved image quality compared to the previous solutions. As a result, machine operators can detect irregularities on the press far better and faster. As a low-cost, entry-level model, the POWERScope 5000 features a uniquely easy-to-operate user interface. In addition to the POWERScope 5000, the TubeScan eagleview developed by cooperation partner Nyquist Systems is another highlight at Print4All. The TubeScan eagleview combines cameras for 100% print inspection and for web monitoring. The machine operators have the possibility to use the 100% print inspection as well as the other cameras for a detailed zoom image. A further exhibition focus will be the iPQ-Center, with which individualized solutions for numerous inspection tasks can be assembled in modular fashion. The company will show the modules iPQ-Check for 100% inspection, iPQ-View for web monitoring and iPQ-Spectral for inline spectral color measurement. With iPQ-Spectral, printers can ensure that the color values of printed products meet customer specifications consistently and perfectly. Due to the ever-increasing hype surrounding Industry 4.0 and the data collected in the printing process, BST eltromat wants to help printers and machine operators to transmit this data through the various process steps, to enrich it, and ultimately to interpret it in an intelligent way for the production process. With MeasureColor, a color management software from Colorware, BST eltromat will present the advantages of consistently combining process steps, from the pre-press and quality assurance systems to product analyses with informative reports. The company will show how preparatory pre-press functions can be used in the subsequent process steps, how machine operators receive recommended actions from the quality assurance systems during the printing process, and the benefits of the wealth of information in the collected data. The holistic view on the production process and the simplified set-up of the quality assurance systems also leads to remarkable cost savings.

Web guiding with CompactGuide and SmartGuide
In the web guiding category, BST eltromat will show the digital line and contrast sensor CLS Pro 60. This sensor provides precise, non-contact scanning of lines as well as of print or web edges. The web guiding systems CompactGuide, EcoGuide and SmartGuide are available in different sizes, are easy-to-use and can be equipped according to customer needs with various sensors, controllers, actuators and guiding devices. CompactGuide and EcoGuide are used for narrow-web applications such as label printing. SmartGuide is suitable for mid web and wide web applications including package printing or extrusion.

Register control despite low-contrast marks
In the field of register control, the BST eltromat presentation in Milan will emphasize the unique performance of its intelligent sensors, which are capable of reliably detecting even very low-contrast marks, as well as lacquers and cold or hot seal. Outstanding examples include white marks on white backgrounds and marks on metallized backgrounds such as holograms. Beyond this, register control systems from BST eltromat are well known on the market for their short setup times and excellent user-friendliness, including the real-time, live production images displayed on machine operators' monitors. BST eltromat will show the regi_star20 and the AR4000, which is suitable for offset printing. The company will present its FSS 15 ink fountain control in combination with AR4000. The FSS 15 ensures high-precision color settings in all offset printing units. BST eltromat provides an extra option for the FSS 15: finecolor ink fountains with laser-cut precision blades, special seals, and tried and tested mechanics for ink key adjustment for unlimited reproducible gap openings between ink blades and ink ductor roller in all ink keys.

Partners for added value inspection
BST eltromat's Italian subsidiary distributes complementary products for the web-processing industries. On the booth they will show their partner's products, for example solutions for web cleaning from Teknek, products for stroboscopic visual print control from Rheintacho and a solution for 100% surface inspection from SeeOne.
