AVT to launch new Cloud QA system

AVT, which mainly develops inspection and quality control systems, is set to introduce a number of new options at this Drupa.

This includes a new cloud-based quality standards and automation platform, called iCenter. It’s aimed at multi-site print facilities and promises cross-site consistency for both quality and colour. The iCenter platform provides solutions to set cross-site quality standards, auto-analyze PDF files for inspection, and extract business intelligence from the production floor with a seamless connectivity to MIS and prepress solutions for optimized automated workflows.

There’s also a new Jet-IQ that will be shown on presses from Heidelberg and Landa. It’s a closed loop solution that works alongside the press controllers. It promises enhanced print quality at high speeds, reduced press down time and full reporting capabilities.

There will be a new version of the Apollo inspection system, the Apollo 30K, developed for HP’s Indigo 30000 folding carton press. This offers a dedicated end-to-end solution for 100% sheet inspection with various workflows supported, including single pack ejection for optimal quality and automation. AVT will also bring its Apollo 20K and Helios solutions for the HP Indigo 20000 flexible packaging press and HP Label press series.

In addition, AVT will be demonstrating its latest in-line spectral measurement solution, the SpectraLab II. This works with most applications including transparent flexible, paper and cartons. This new version offers new compact design, advanced color workflow management and improved inline-to-offline measurement correlation.

Naturally, AVT will show off its existing systems, including the Argus Turbo and Helios Turbo 100% Inspection platforms for label and packaging applications, seen at the last Label Expo.
