Advanced Vision Technology (AVT) has been selected by industry leading press manufacturer Mark Andy to provide print quality and control for its high-end hybrid inkjet label press. The AVT system, Jet-IQ, is the only proven closed loop solution for digital inkjet presses that works in synergy with press controllers to maintain heightened print quality. This alone makes it the perfect complement to the Mark Andy Digital Series platform.
Jet-IQ offers an unsurpassed combination of production speed and assurance. In addition to providing exemplary print quality at high run speeds, the solution offers quick set-up and full reporting functionalities. As a result, presses can confidently run not only faster but more frequently.
Jet-IQ achieves this through a multi-faceted set of benefits. An innovative nozzle performance and color control feature increases press productivity, and the system also can verify geometric parameters such as color to color registration, image placement and printing defects detection. Jet-IQ also monitors the integrity of both permanent and variable content, classifying possible print defects and automatically initiating corrective measures.
For the Digital Series, AVT’s Jet-IQ will provide enhanced inspection and quality control while supporting overall print process automation, ultimately streamlining and safeguarding the challenging task that is label printing.
“AVT is a proven supplier of comprehensive inspection and press control solutions, and we look forward to extending their expertise into our digital hybrid solutions,” states Tom Schelmbauer, vice president of engineering, Mark Andy. “Their experts have been working closely with our product development team to understand the needs of our customer base and deliver high-quality inspection and quality management on our Digital Series hybrid press solution.”
Amir Sheinman, AVT's Marketing VP: "We are honored to partner with Mark Andy in integrating one of our premier print quality control solutions on its line of premium digital hybrid presses. The combination gives customers next-generation press automation and quality control, allowing for faster and more confident production practices in the growing digital printing sector.”
AVT is the leader and pioneer in advanced inspection, press control and workflow solutions designed to meet the specific needs of digital printers. In addition to Jet-IQ, the company offers a selection of solutions tailored for short run print jobs and digital workflow, including several 100% inspection and workflow systems for digital label and packaging presses.
Integrating AVT solutions with Mark Andy Digital Series, allows label converters and printers to fully leverage the benefits of inline hybrid printing by achieving high quality, high production output in a single pass with market leading inkjet technology.
