Grafikontrol’s drupa stand sees boom of visitors from the United States and the Middle East 

New PROCHECK system for print defect traceability and new MATRIX and LYNEX inspection systems achieve success in packaging markets

Milan, June 29th, 2016 – Grafikontrol’s participation at drupa proved to be one of the most successful, with hundreds of visitors from all over the world. Grafikontrol showed its leadership by presenting a complete range of quality control systems centered on the TQC-360° platform.  These products offer continuous and complete inspection throughout the printing and post-printing process. These solutions have been adopted by major industry manufacturers including UTECO, Lombardi Converting and Amut Dolci Bielloni who installed the Grafikontrol systems on their printing presses at drupa.

Visitors were particularly impressed with the PROCHECK system, the newest TQC-360° product presented at the show. “This innovative defect tracking system, which is currently patent pending, tracks the exact location of every defect detected during printing and lamination. This information is then sent to the slitting department and allows the operator to remove defects by automatically controlling the machine stoppage. Until now, it was the missing link in the total quality process, comments Paolo De Grandis, sales director and business partner at Grafikontrol. Regarding the new philosophy adopted in the development of the TQC-360° products, De Grandis elaborated: “it’s a unique solution on the market and an indispensable aid which any efficient pressroom must have.”

Monza, 10th May 2016 – The major Italian manufacturers of Flexo printing machines have chosen, once again, to work with Digital Flex, company specialised in flexographic prepress, for the realisation of the printing plates being used at drupa.

Flexo HD Plus® is the trademark registered by Digital Flex in Europe. It certifies that the flexographic plate is produced with high definition digital systems and has the advantage of having a ‘flat top’ dot. The main benefits of this system are the chromatic and tonal perfection of images, sharpness of logos, readability of texts and management of nuances, with greater gradualness to obtain a wider chromatic range plus exceptional ink transfer in the solid backgrounds and screened areas, consistent printing during the entire print run and greater control of dot gain.
