Techkon’s SpectroVision inline color quality control solution addresses the three biggest issues that contribute to higher production costs and lost profits for narrow and medium web width flexo and packaging printers. SpectroVision combines spectral based color measurement, web viewing, and ISO/ANSI style bar code grading into a single product.
See how the SpectroVision inline quality inspection solution seamlessly integrates color measurement, web viewing, and bar code grading.
SpectroVision is affordable, compact in size, and can be easily mounted into existing flexo, gravure, and digital presses. Real time feedback – during both make-ready and production runs – eliminates the need for stopping and restarting the press for offline measurements & adjustments. And because SpectroVision can measure an entire color control strip in a single printed impression, the system is invaluable to operators during make-ready where color adjustments must be made quickly to reduce make-ready times and eliminate waste.
SpectroVision uses a true scanning spectrophotometer and is the only inline solution on the market which is capable of measuring an entire press control strip (up to 100 color patches) in a single printed impression. Instant feedback – and corrective adjustments – means problems are caught early, reducing time and wasted materials.
LIVE WEB VIEWING
SpectroVision provides operators with a high resolution, live, view of the moving web. Key image locations, such as registration marks, logos, critical text, etc., can be programmed into each job allowing the operator to switch between locations with the touch of a button.
BAR CODE GRADING
Selected bar codes within the impression are automatically loaded, scanned, and graded at full print production speeds, using ISO/ANSI style grading. Results are displayed on screen with pass/fail indication, while an optional roll marking or flagging system indicates where problems occurred in the roll for easier post processing.
By checking everything in real-time and at full production press speeds, you can have complete confidence that your jobs are printed perfectly – the first time, on time, and every time.
SpectroVision provides live viewing of registration marks, text and logos, ISO/ANSI style grading of bar codes, and real-time measurement of color patches, color bars, and even specific in-image locations. To ensure color quality, operators get instant feedback regarding key print attributes and specific ink adjustments to minimize deltaE’s and maximize the color accuracy of brand colors and customer color specifications.
SpectroVision measures in real-time at full production press speeds which shortens make-ready cycles and increases profitability by eliminating the need to stop the press for handheld measurements. Detecting color shifts before they go out of specification and catching bar code problems as they occur makes them easier to correct; eliminating waste.
The included Techkon ChromaQA software serves as the hub for managing inline quality across multiple operators, multiple departments, and multiple print locations, ensuring consistent results. Powerful data analysis tools let you learn from your production data for ongoing process improvements and cost savings.
Web Viewing, Color Measurements, and Bar Code Grading while the press is running at production speeds allows you to detect problems immediately instead of when the roll is finished. Catch problems as they occur to reduce waste, save money, and increase confidence in the product you are delivering.
Today’s printing and packaging customers are placing ever increasing demands for accuracy and consistency on their print supply chain. SpectroVision’s customized reports detail print quality throughout the entire press run, increasing customer confidence by proving accuracy and consistency for every job you deliver.
