CR25-CR26

CR25
The CR25 register control system has been developed using advanced electronic technologies, such as high-speed matrix video cameras, specially made for the purpose. These have made it possible to enormously reduce the space occupied by the register marks (micromarks) for automatic control of circumferential and lateral color register on web-offset presses in commercial and newspaper printing.
CR26
The cameras can be positioned, on request, between the last printing unit and the drier, in order to ensure immediate response to variations in register and thus further reduce the number of waste copies. The cameras read the marks on free paper, unsupported by a roller, with a tolerance of oscillations in the web of ± 7 mm.

CR25TPLT

The CR25TPLT longitudinal and sidelay register control system for cutting and folding has been developed using advanced electronic technologies, such as high-speed matrix video cameras, specially made for the purpose. These have made it possible to enormously reduce the space occupied by the register marks (micromarks).

COLORSCAN

In recent years printers have required their color control systems to reduce space to save money. COLORSCAN has done this by eliminating the color bars.
The COLORSCAN system measures the optical density and L*a*b* values of the colors on live production in ‘real time’, analyzing each sector across the web by means of a mobile camera placed after the last printing unit.
The system automatically adjusts and maintains the color values by acting on the ink keys and eventually on the inking roller speed.

PM3

Paper is more and more a critical factor in the printing process. The continuous push for higher productivity means that web breaks, paper waste and monetary claims due to web quality, are key factors in reaching profitability goals.
Modern wide presses and high production speeds require more efficient and reliable systems to detect paper defects and to identify reasons for web breaks. The PM3 system provides a control of the paper from the reel-stand to the press delivery, to continuously check the paper quality and allow the operator to distinguish web breaks due to the web quality from those due to press settings.

LYNEX

100% PRINT INSPECTION. THE GUARANTEE FOR TOTAL QUALITY CONTROL

In roll-to-roll packaging printing the demand for defect free product and tight regulations obligate printers to equip their presses with systems that can guarantee a total quality control. This avoids embarrassing situations with your customers that can result in costly reprints or monetary credits. LYNEX is a 100% print inspection developed by Grafikontrol to assure the total quality control during the printing process. The continuous inspection of the entire print repeat, with programmable sensitivities, allows the automatic detection of all print or substrate defects and a real time evaluation of the production. The immediate warning, when a flaw is detected, guarantees the elimination of defective material which optimizes your process and avoids claims. The modular architecture, combined with powerful hardware and dedicated algorithms for image processing, make the LYNEX a flexible and easy to use instrument for inspection on gravure, flexo and offset presses. It is possible to set quality standards based on customer needs and specifications. LYNEX can operate as stand-alone module in multiple processes, as a print or substrate inspection device, or in combination with the MATRIX.

CR33-CR34

COLOR REGISTER CONTROL SYSTEM FOR PACKAGING ROTOGRAVURE PRESSES

The CR33 - CR34 register control systems guarantee the highest accuracy and reduction of waste during all phases of production: make-readies, acceleration, and splices for both mechanical and e-shaft presses. The superior electronic technologies and dedicated software algorithms guarantee steady register between the colors for the entire press run resulting in maximum operator and press efficiency. CR33 and CR34 can be easily adapted to different printing processes (gravure, flexo or offset). It can function on all registered printing units or as single control for a downstream station. The systems are designed to fit on new or existing presses and are adapted for in-line or tandem configuration presses. The fiber optics scanners are specially designed using high sensitivity RGB sensors which automatically adapt the amplification to detect very low contrast colors on any kind of substrate.

Grafikscan

GRAFIKSCAN 3000 is a system for the 100% inspection of printed web, guaranteeing total control during the printing process by automatically detecting and cataloging all defects in order to provide a real-time analysis of production.
GRAFIKSCAN 2200 is a web viewer with statistical inspection software, it ensures print quality control and minimizes waste with help of dedicated special software: interactive register©, barcode verification, Ä color monitoring.

MATRIX

MATRIX is the basic component of the TQC-360° family. Its primary function is to provide the highest image quality and zoom. The 6 Megapixel color digital camera combined with the new generation of high efficiency LED illumination allow snapshots of the running web with dot-sharp images from any printing process and substrate. The powerful hardware and the new multi-touch operator interface guarantee high performance, fast settings and quick operations. Intuitive graphics, similar to tablets, makes it easy to operate even for beginners. Its modular design offers the ability to configure the system as the customer wants. MATRIX can act as a simple web viewer or can be expanded with multiple functions and options that transform it into a powerful quality control device. When fully equipped, the MATRIX enables operators to detect the most common print defects, even when not visible to the human eye, and to verify the printing consistency.

PROGREX

COMBINATION OF 100% INSPECTION + WEB VIEWING

The inspection of a wide web cannot be done only with scanning or 100% cameras. Press operators need a tool that combines line scan cameras (LYNEX) and area camera (MATRIX) to guarantee total quality control and to fully satisfiy the customer request for complete process control.

• Full integration of the LYNEX 100% inspection, the MATRIX area cameras and other features are all managed by a single operator interface
• Intuitive multi-touch screen gives quick and easy access to all components and functions
• The area camera and the 100% inspection work independently: the full web inspection is not compromised when press operator uses the area camera for viewing fine print details
• The Touch&View function moves the area camera to a desired position simply by touching a point on the print repeat display screen

About us

Company details

Since 1969 Grafikontrol has been world wide leader in designing, producing and installing control and inspection systems for the graphic industry thanks to its experience in rotogravure, flexo and web-offset printing presses, thanks to the fulfilment of different needs expressed by customers in each continent and thanks specially to the passion for quality that has led us to reach the highest standards.

The great experience in the different printing sectors and the continuous cooperation with world wide manufacturers and printers lead us to supply reliable and quality products, able to drastically reduce wastes and press downtimes.

This defect-free production also thank to TQC-360°, the newest modular platform for Grafikontrol’s products. It has been developed to give printers a complete solution for quality assurance. With the TQC-360° concept, Grafikontrol offers a full range of quality control to the printing and converting industry through production, application, and processes and services. Our “all around” approach to the customer combines high performing products and excellent service.
