BST eltromat presents innovations at LABELEXPO

At the end of September the world's largest specialist event for the labelling and packaging industry will start with the LABELEXPO EUROPE in Brussels, Belgium. From 29 September to 2 October 2015, an abundant trade fair programme with numerous product introductions and live demonstrations about labelling, product labelling and print technology await the visitors. As one oft he world market leaders for quality assurance and production optimisation, BST eltromat International GmbH sees LABELEXPO as an occasion to present their current new developments and further developments to a wider audience. With the focus on the areas of 100% inspection, workflow, web monitoring and colour measurement and web guide regulation, BST eltromat presents innovative production solutions, which contribute to improvements in production efficiency.

Further developed web guide regulation systems for the first time with Wide Array Sensors

With regards to web guide regulation, things have changed quite a lot at BST eltromat. Apart from the established product portfolio, the trade fair visitors can get to know further developed solutions for web guide regulation live, promises Ingo Ellerbrock, Product Manager, with a view to the future in label printing: "The trend in label printing is increasingly going in the direction of standardized, extendable compact solutions. At LABELEXPO we present our cost saving entry level solution for web guide regulation with EcoGuide amongst others. Furthermore, we are combining a Wide Array Sensor from our subsidiary AccuWeb Inc. USA with our tried and tested controller ekr 500 digital for the first time. These Wide Array Sensors have large measurement areas to electronically compensate for changes in the web width, and therefore make mechanical adjustments and/or manual alignments of the sensors superfluous." Apart from the further developments in web guide regulation, the tried and tested BST eltromat systems CompactGuide and SmartGuide, the digital sensor CLS Pro 600 and the current ekr controller generation will also be presented.

Process oriented solutions for colour measurement

The trade fair visitors can also look forward to highly interesting further development, where Inline Spectral colour measurement is right at the top of the agenda. Of course BST eltromat is showing its innovative solution for the measurement of absolute colour values with the iPQ-Spectral. In addition however, a further process sequence will also be introduced, which was developed in cooperation with coe, a renowned company in the pre-print stage with headquarters in Bremen and Stuttgart. "What is brand new is that we have transferred the fitting of the colour measurement system from the machine into the pre-print stage," reveals Dr. Christopher Kauczor, Product Manager, in the run up to the trade fair. "Therefore, data and colour values could be determined even in the pre-print stage, which is significantly more economic. This leads to an optimisation of processes which pays off." At the same time, the development partner coe will also present the joint solution at its trade fair stand at LABELEXPO.

Innovative 100% print image inspection due to high performance LED lighting

Dirk Volkening, Product Manager, about a new feature of the iPQ-Center: "iPQ-Check, the module of the iPQ-Center for the 100% print image inspection, now has new, self developed high performance LED lighting. This means that the module is excellently suited for printing flexible packaging, for all opaque (lightproof) and reflective materials, but of course also for normal paper. We are pleased to be able to introduce these further developments to a larger audience at LABELEXPO, and look forward to the reaction."

Optimum workflow for maximum production speed

"We are not short on innovations," Volkening assures us. This also includes the Shark 4000 Lex. The flexible, adjustable 100% inspection system for use on rewinders and narrow web printing machines will support the iPQ-Workflow from now on. "Of course, all data will still be recorded e.g. on the customer server and can be viewed on any PC," says Volkening. "But due to the fact that the focus is on the important data when evaluating the minutes, the rewinder only stops at the process relevant points. In this way, the production can be run at maximum speed." This means a significant process improvement says Volkening on the innovations for the Shark 4000 Lex.

Video web monitoring with extended operating concept

A further trade fair focus of BST eltromat is the most economic model for video web monitoring, the PowerScope 4000. The operation of the system primarily conceived for label printing and other narrow web applications, is now even more user friendly. "We have taken on an established operating element from our "large" solutions, and added a joystick to the PowerScope 4000. This makes the operating concept of the rotatable and removable keyboard and touch screen even more flexible, and the handling even more intuitive," reports Dr. Christopher Kauczor and adds: "But that is not all. Not by a long shot. In future, the PowerScope 4000 will have the optional possibility of recording a freely configurable order history."
