Grafikontrol will be attending the K exhibition in Dusseldorf from 19 to 26 October, at Hall 4, Stand A07 offering the renewed and successful modular platform TQC-360° (Total Quality Control at 360°).

by Alex Ciabuschi

Grafikontrol’s TQC-360° concept is not limited to quality control for the printing and converting industry but extends by integrating into all stages of production, applications, processes and services.
The TQC-360° products integrate into any web application; they can operate separately or together through a single operator interface if desired. The components that make up the TQC-360° line can operate separately or together through a single operator interface if desired. The concept of defect-free production and workflow management is renewed with the range of products called “PLUS”.
Demonstrations at K will focus on:
MATRIX PLUS: the web viewing system is an area camera that moves across the web taking high quality snapshots of the whole running web. The 9.6 Mpixel camera resolution ensures fantastic quality and realistic colour reproduction. MATRIX PLUS 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.
LYNEX PLUS: it is a 100% inspection system for gravure, flexo, web offset that can be used as a stand alone system or integrated with MATRIX PLUS. LYNEX PLUS can compare the live print with the original generated PDF file that has been used to produce the plates or the gravure cylinders.
This gives the operator the ability to verify if the printout matches the original file.
