QuadTech’s Color Control System with Instrument Flight and SpectralCam controls color, solid ink density, three-color gray balance and midtone dot gain. Its spectral-based sensor gathers colorimetric and densitometric data across a fast-moving web from a continuous color bar. This data is used to calculate to L*a*b* and densitometric values and is then analyzed by System Brunner's enhanced Instrument Flight + L*a*b* to facilitate the highest levels of accuracy in color control and gray balance. This results in uniform color over the entire print run, including the delicate gray and tertiary tones.
QuadTech’s network-based ICON integrated platform enables a smooth running workflow. It is a single, centralized station that can control, recall and apply stored job setup data. This achieves makeready savings in terms of equipment setup time, labor and materials.
QuadTech’s Data Central Reporting receives, stores and analyzes information from the ICON integrated platform control systems and generates reports that show how well each job meets the desired tolerances. It is a single point for accessing all press control information and is linked to the printer's IT system, optimizing control for operators who can then compare productivity and make any equipment or job changes according to previous and live runs.
QuadTech has also introduced Service Advantage with Proactive Care, which offers a first-of-its-kind service program. It is designed for customers to choose the level of service that best matches the needs of the business based on press, people and budget. The program includes a wide range of services such as Proactive Care—24/7/365, on-line monitoring of your ICON system by skilled technicians-preventive maintenance, training, technical support, and more.
