Print images - easy and more precise monitoring with BST PROView
One highlight that BST Ibérica will be demonstrating at the show is the new BST PROView video web monitoring system. The system, which is suitable for both narrow and wide webs, can be ideally adapted to users' needs thanks to its modular design. In addition to two camera and lighting units in different sizes, they can freely choose from various extension options. BST PROView delivers reliable top performance in real-time print image monitoring: While the eye no longer realizes web speeds of 1,000 meters per minute, this is where BST's latest camera-based monitoring system comes into its own. Simplicity was also the focus in the design of BST PROView: from commissioning via plug-n-play, through intuitive operation, to convenient remote maintenance.
100 % quality - high-end surface inspection BST iPQ-Surface
Whether for example in extrusion, coating, battery cell production or printing machines: Surface inspection only works perfectly if camera, illumination, and defect classification are perfectly matched. This is exactly what the latest surface inspection system BST iPQ-Surface does. It is a particularly user-friendly system, as the user can teach the BST solution defect classes, which are then automatically assigned to increasingly better defects. In addition, the BST system is able to interact with existing network and machine and to fit into the existing IT landscape. As a member of the BST iPQ family, BST iPQ-Surface combines state-of-the-art camera technology with innovative multiplex lighting and makes even the smallest defects visible in a compact installation space. "The special feature of a BST iPQ-Surface system is the optimal combination of the individual components. This creates the best solution for individual applications: flexible, modular and, above all, demand-optimized," reports Ricardo Cabeza, Managing Director BST Ibérica
BST stands for over 60 years of experience in printing and has done pioneering work in register and web guiding. As early as 1990, it launched the world's first video inspection system and today is a leader in surface inspection as well as printing.
100% inspection system, TubeScan Digital Strobe
In addition to the new products BST PROView and BST iPQ-Surface, BST Ibérica will also demonstrate proven systems and solutions such as the TubeScan Digital Strobe and web guiding systems at the booth. Two proven products from our extensive product line.
In particular, the TubeScan Digital Strobe is a 100% defect inspection solution with great success in the label industry. TubeScan can detect virtually any type of print defects, missing labels, or label breakage. This equipment is used in both presses and inspection machines.
In addition, TubeScan offers the possibility of special illuminations for non-visible UV inks or Clear on Clear and Clear on Paper labels. TubeScan has special software such as verification against PDF, color monitoring and control of variable alphanumeric and sequential bar codes. Another important point is the Workflow QLink that allows tracking and cleaning of defects between presses and inspectors.
Recently, we have launched the new version of TubeScan model TubeScan XL for presses and slitters. This is our economical 100% inspection solution for wide web printing and converting. TubeScan XL provides excellent image quality for web inspection on the press. Detailed areas are analyzed in detail using high-resolution zoom functions on the large 32″ monitor.
Recurring errors, e.g. from faulty printing plates, can be detected at an early stage. This minimizes unnecessary costs for misprints and shortens makeready times. Color consistency can be ensured by ΔE monitoring.
During inspection on the slitter the QLink system records quality data and stores them on a server. Each slitted lane is treated separately. This makes the selection of daughter rolls for further processing easy. Relevant daughter roll statistics are concisely displayed on the screen for the operator. Based on your defect presets, QLink Slitter categorizes your material in “defect free”, “waste” and “to be doctored”.
"Hispack is the largest packaging, process and logistics exhibition in Spain and one of the leading exhibitions of its kind in Europe. We are pleased to be able to bring our products to life here again. Our BST PROView, BST iPQ-Surface and TubeScan Digital Strobe will delight visitors to our booth," explains Ricardo Cabeza.
