QuadTech’s Color Control and Web Inspection System with AccuCam, winner of Printing Industries of America’s InterTech Technology Award, provides fully automatic closed-loop color control by controlling the ink-key settings. An image-based color control system, AccuCam eliminates the need for unsightly gray bars or color bars. The system also provides reliable warnings of many common printing faults such as scumming, creasing, transposed plates, and tramlines. The AccuCam system’s water control capability monitors and controls press damping levels, reducing paper waste and ink usage.
For the commercial printer, Color Control System with Instrument Flight & SpectralCam comprises L*a*b*, TVI and technology pioneered by System Brunner that controls not only solid ink density, but three-color gray balance and midtone dot gain. This provides optimal color control on web offset presses, ensuring consistent, accurate image quality through the entire print run.
QuadTech and Alwan Color Expertise (Lyon, France) have joined forces to provide on-the-fly automated plate curve monitoring and adjustment for web offset press applications. Working with QuadTech's Color Control System with SpectralCam, Alwan's PRINT Standardizer software automatically compensates for dot gain deviations in virtually all printing situations and also provides ISO 12647 and G7 compliance confirmation.
QuadTech’s performance proven MultiCam is the world’s best-selling register camera, with over 10,000 cameras built. It searches for register marks 30 times per second and identifies register marks as small as 0.50 mm (0.020 in). QuadTech’s Register Guidance System with MultiCam is a closed-loop color-to-color register control system that enables printers to achieve salable copies in a minimum number of press impressions from startup, reducing waste, increasing savings and maximizing quality. Optional fan-out control software automatically keeps the system in lateral register across the width of the web. It can also include other features such as cocking control, anti-embossing, and ink guiding capabilities. QuadTech’s Ribbon Control System with MultiCam is a print-to-cut and print-to-fold registration system that minimizes waste during make ready and when cutting any imperfect substrate areas.
