Graphic-Vision® GV-Spectro Feature Updates

Posted on December 7th, 2016 by admin

Debuting in mid 2014, the Graphic-Vision® GV-Spectro had a great reception in the industry as demand for inline and absolute color measurement is on the rise. Undergoing continuous development in those two years, there have been many new features introduced that have kept this system an industry leader in both performance and innovation. The GV-Spectro still offers the most accurate real-time color measurement and reporting available on the market. Paired with advanced, programmable positioning capabilities, the system is simply a staple for any printer looking for the most efficient way to get the most accurate color measurements from their press.

The newest GV-Spectro has improved system performance and efficiency without impacting the bottom line. Along with improved hardware specifications, the system now offers dot gain measurement and tracking, off-line setup, job management, and higher speed capabilities.

How to achieve accurate and consistent 100% inspection across all speed ranges

Posted on August 26th, 2016 by Deborah Puschner

With many manufacturers providing standardized one-size-fits-all inspection systems, catching defects on a higher speed web or sheet often comes with compromises. When running at the highest speeds, standardized systems will often hit a limit in inspection and processing capability. These systems have no choice but to lower sensitivity and allow the passage of larger defects in order to maintain speed. Unfortunately, the printer may not realize their 100% inspection is not providing accurate or consistent defect detection. This can be one result of selecting an inspection system that hasn’t been configured for a printer’s specific application requirements or equipment.
