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

The demand for total print control is satisfied by our innovative 100% inspection system. The LYNEX assures the control of the entire print repeat reporting and storing every defect detected during the production. The system provides this data in roll maps and generates production reports for subsequent analysis and workflow use.

About us

Company details

Grafikontrol was incorporated in 1969 by Antonio De Grandis and Umberto Filippi. The electronic background and experience of both partners in the graphic industry and register controls for gravure and offset presses, defined the core industrial focus of the company.
In the early seventies, Guido Agazzi, followed by Luigi Artuffo, joined the company. Mr. Agazzi, together with Mr. De Grandis and Mr. Filippi, became the champions of Grafikontrol growth and development. Mr. Artuffo, initially serving as Technical Manager, eventually assumed the position of Production Manager and Partner in the company.
At that time the company’s name changed to “Grafikontrol Controlli Grafici e Industriali” (Graphics and Industrial Controls). The team mission was to develop a new generation of equipment for the graphic industry. The primary objectives were to improve print quality, reduce down time and print waste.

Grafikontrol continues to be involved in new, highly innovative projects. We are determined to provide the latest technologies, adhere to military specification components, and to achieve maximum reliability. The company has earned recognition as leader in high performance press controls. With its extensive experience and expertise in the printing industry and market, Grafikontrol enjoys access to the major printers and press manufacturers all over the world.

In more than 40 years of work, the company has grown very much reaching more than 100 employees and being recognized as leader of the sector. Grafikontrol equipment is recognized and appreciated by the most important printing companies for performance, quality and flexibility to meet printers’ customers requirements.
Today, the founders’ sons, Paolo De Grandis, Davide Filippi and Carlo Artuffo, have taken over the helm.
This second generation collaborates with their seniors and carry on with the same enthusiasm for technical innovation which made Grafikontrol so successful.
The Directors command sectors of responsibility, and are united by professional passion for a brilliant future for Grafikontrol and new innovations for the print industry.
