The non-contact scanning of the web of material is carried out by detecting contrasts in light conditions. A CCD Cam 100 can scan up to eight contrast transfers.
CCD Cam 100 by BST eltromat • Resolution of up to 60,000 pixels by a microprocessor controlled CCD chip • Adaptation of the viewing range to the specific application by selecting from a range of different lenses • Camera parameters adjustable for change of material while machine is running (no change-over time required) • Quick set-up and camera alignment via an integrated graphic display • Simple operation using various automatic functions (for example, the removal of interfering contrasts, compensation for contamination, white balance, and storage of the set-up values) • The production and adjustment parameters can be transmitted more quickly and more securely by networking via the BST bus system
Field of application: • Digital scanning of web edges, printed edges or printed lines • Web center-line guiding, web width measurement • Control of tools or other machines (tracing of cutting knives, etc.)
BST eltromat developed the product CLS Pro 600 for precise control for print and web edges as well as printed lines.
The system combines colour line camera, a broad measuring range, high resolution colour display and an intuitive operation.
CLS Pro 600 sensor:
Precise scanning of lines, print edges or web edges using a color sensor Optimum lighting thanks to automatically controlled LEDs Outstanding dependability even at the highest web speeds Clear color display Intuitive user guidance and convenient operation Laser guided positioning Convenient selection of printed line, print edge or web edge using a color display of contrast transfers
Field of application:
Contrast edge controlling Web edge or printed line
These dynamically compensated array edge sensors offer a wide sensing range — using either ultrasonic or infrared sensing technology.
WideArray™ Edge Detectors feature large detection ranges to accommodate variations in web width. Web widths can be changed on the fly, eliminating the need to physically reposition edge detectors. Rugged and compact in size, a WideArray is easily mounted and requires only a single cable. Every WideArray features AccuWeb’s patented Compensated Array Technology that automatically compensates for dust, changes in temperature and humidity, as well as web flutter and passline variances, along with other environmental factors.
Even in the harshest environments, the WideArray edge detector gives you more consistency, accuracy and reliability.

Layer & Basis Weight Measurement
For the precise production and control of flat web material, BST eltromats subsidiary BST ProControl offers a broad service package, ranging from planning, feasibility studies and implementation through to comprehensive after sales service.
BST ProControl services include:
• Quality control of flat web material • Technical solutions for measurement and control • Development and implementation of quality systems • Online measurement within the production process Precise registration, contactless measurement and continuous inspection and assessment of: • grammage/surface-related mass • (layer) thickness • density • moisture • speed • length • ash • coat weight • optical features
The iPQ Check module by BST eltromat is an intelligent tool for uncompromised print quality inspection for the complete print format.
iPQ-Check is especially suitable for many applications in the web printing industry. The high performance line scan cameras deliver detailed color image data for an immediate image reproduction from the first print cylinder revolution onwards. Sophisticated technologies and algorithms ensure the complete and reliable monitoring as well as the immediate correction of error sources. The result: defect free print quality, lower production cost and higher press productivity.
iPQ-Spectral by BST eltromat allows you to comply with pre-defined color standards by performing inline measurements within your printing machine during productions. This means measurements after roll changes using print samples with hand-held devices are no longer necessary.
Fully-automated measurement • provides easy operator setup • permanently records color data during the job • objectively evaluates the color data and will trigger warnings and alarms if the preset tolerances are exceeded • logs color deviations and generates a job report
This on press monitoring allows for a rapid response to color deviations, resulting in reduction of waste. Furthermore, you will get a deeper insight into your printing process. Evaluation of the data enables you to optimize the internal production processes, thus gaining a competitive edge because cost savings can be easily identified. In summary, the spectral inline color measurement system will help you to create an economical printing process that will also consistently impress customers with the highest possible color sensitivity.
The web guiding commander ekr 500 digital by BST eltromat is a special developed for standard web guiding applications. The compact design and the removable control keyboard guarantee a simple handling and effortless integration into every machine.

iPQ-View by BST eltromat is a powerful tool for digital web viewing during the printing process.
Based on high-quality video display, the iPQ-View operator makes informed decisions on optical quality assurance. The intuitive operator interface minimizes the reaction times and offers the operator new capacities for other tasks. A wide range of standard functions and numerous options makes iPQ-View an attractive multifunctional tool for quality assurance.
Improved material and surface properties are the main reason for the coating and laminating of substrates. No defects are allowed to influence this new and improved functionality. Typical defects like coating streaks or delamination defects need to be detected and alarmed to the operator, also a later elimination of the defects needs to be supported in the workflow. The iPQ-Check surface is the ideal system for implementing a zero defect quality control solution during production.
The small and robust camera module has the smallest footprint in the market. This allows for an easy and low cost integration into the production line. With its modular architecture the system can be adapted perfectly to many different applications. The iPQ-Check surface can be equipped with RGB or monochrome line scan cameras, as well as different types of high performing LED’s for illumination.
