TLF Graphics Installs AVT Workflow Solution
HOD-HASHARON, Israel—TLF Graphics in Rochester, New York installed an AVT PrintVision/Helios II 100 percent Automatic Inspection solution together with a Helios II WorkFlow Link from Advanced Vision Technology (AVT) Ltd., a leading supplier of automatic print inspection, color control and quality assurance systems for the printing industry.
TLF Graphics produces high-quality pressure sensitive labels as well as labeling systems and screen printed products. For label production it uses both flexography and digital printing processes. TLF installed the AVT equipment last year on a Nilpeter press and an Arpeco Tracker rewinder. TLF wanted a defect detection system that identified defects during the printing process as opposed to after the process was completed.
“It is all about delivering the highest quality, defect-free product to the customer," Dan Wagner, vice president of pperations and partner of TLF Graphics said. "The AVT systems have allowed us to improve print quality and increase throughput. We use the AVT defect detection system for all applications including the automatic inspection of printing products with very small type that are difficult and costly for an individual to inspect.”
After months of production with the AVT systems, TLF is pleased with its increased yield in quality product.
Amir Dekel, vice president of marketing for AVT, stated: “Label printers like TLF have a unique opportunity to greatly increase the overall efficiency of existing equipment with the installation of our systems. By allowing our systems to provide automatic inspection and defect detection, as well as extremely efficient roll cleaning capabilities of WorkFlow Link, printers can run their equipment at higher speeds while at the same time greatly increasing print quality and output efficiency.”
PrintVision/Helios II is a 100 percent automatic inspection solution for label and narrow web printing. It delivers process control and 100 percent quality assurance capabilities throughout the entire print production workflow, from setup through printing to finishing.
