Grafikontrol to introduce the latest technology for print control at PRINT4ALL

Milan, May 2018 – Grafikontrol, leader in manufacturing press controls for the graphic industry, will introduce the whole TQC-360° products family – at PRINT4ALL, Hall 18, stand C08-D07 in Milan from May 29 to June 1 – now enriched with two new components, LYNEX C/S and MATRIX C/S, dedicated to 100% inspection and statistics of coating, varnish, cold seal.

With the TQC-360° products line Grafikontrol strives to present itself as a global partner covering every aspect of the print production by offering products, applications, processes and services aimed at guaranteeing a defect-free printing. 

360° Solutions for packaging

At PRINT4ALL all Grafikontrol’s TQC-360° systems of quality control and register control for rotogravure, flexo and offset sectors for packaging and labels will be live demonstrated, using two rotary simulators. 

  • MATRIX: the web viewing system is an area camera that moves across the web taking high quality snapshots of the whole running web. The 6 Mpixel camera resolution ensures fantastic quality and realistic colour reproduction. MATRIX can be loaded with multiple options such as statistical inspection, delta colour monitoring with ∆E, barcode verification, print repeat monitoring, UV coating visualization and transparent varnish inspection
  • MATRIX C/S: it is the new matrix system for simultaneous display of the correct superimposition of the front print with glue or varnish applied on the opposite site (duplex register)
  • LYNEX: it is a true 100% inspection system that can be used as a stand alone system or integrated with MATRIX. LYNEX can compare live printing with the PDF file that has been used to produce the printed plates or the gravure cylinders. That provides the operator with the ability to verify if the print matches with the original file
  • LYNEX-S: it is a 100% print inspection system for gravure, flexo, offset, dedicated to narrow web and neutral film including all the LYNEX features
  • LYNEX C/S: it has been designed to inspect the 100% of the web for coating, varnish or cold-seal on printed or base substrates
  • CHROMALAB: in-line real spectrophotometer, to monitor the colour trend of all printed colours; the system provides real time measurement and trends of Spectral curves, Density, dot gain, L*a*b*, ∆E
  • PROGREX: a combination of the functions of MATRIX and LYNEX to form a complete tool, that helps the user with each print phase on gravure flexographic and offset presses
  • CR33-CR34: register controls for rotogravure and flexographic presses that ensures register stability among colours for the entire production and reduces waste
  • PROCHECK: a unique and innovative system for a full defect traceability and removal from printed rolls.

Grafikontrol will showcase its LYNEX label control system at Labelexpo Europe 2017

Milano, 4th July 2017 – Grafikontrol, a leading control systems manufacturer for the printing industry, will be attending Labelexpo from September 25 to 28 in Brussels, to introduce all LYNEX  system’s features in label control at stand no. 11D09. LYNEX is part of the Grafikontrol TQC-360° modular platform, developed to provide printers with an overarching solution, which guarantees quality, combining top quality performances with top-drawer support.

Presented for the first time in the label market at Labelexpo 2015, LYNEX is a 100% inspection system of the printed web, that enables automatic detection and classification of every defect. Its ability of continuous full width image inspection with its easy of use have made it in a short time an appreciated and sought after system by label makers.

Thanks to its modern multitasking interface implemented on a 23” high-resolution multi-touch monitor, the operator can analyze the entire format in real time and benefit from automatic detection of both print and media defects. Immediate alarm, when imperfection is detected, eliminates defective material. LYNEX also provides production analysis and data collection.
