BST eltromat focuses on increasing performance in label and packaging printing at LABELEXPO EUROPE
BST eltromat “perfecting your performance” – LABELEXPO EUROPE 2019 (September 24–27 in Brussels) is the first exhibition at which BST eltromat International is exhibiting under its new slogan. “The slogan perfectly reflects what customers around the globe do with our solutions for quality assurance. They increase the efficiency and profitability of their production by satisfying their customers’ quality requirements with less waste and minimal setup times,” explains Anne-Laureen Lauven, Head of Marketing at BST eltromat. Collaboration with expert partners such as Nyquist Systems Hybrid Software, and Colorware enhances the company’s options for providing integrated support to customers. “perfecting your performance” is the elexis Group’s new slogan. BST eltromat is the group’s largest subsidiary.
The new slogan ties together the exhibits that BST eltromat is showing at its booth in Brussels (hall 5, booth D23). The company’s solutions for web monitoring and 100% inspection in label and packaging printing will be in focus. The company will also showcase the topics of web guiding, register control, color measurement, and color management in offset printing. For countless label and packaging printers and manufacturers of narrow web printing machinery around the globe, BST eltromat is the partner of choice when it comes to quality assurance. “Thanks to the wide range of our modular product portfolio, we are able to cover our customers’ requirements for quality assurance with standard solutions. Those who have requirements beyond the standard can rely on our expertise in project planning and automation to provide them with individual solutions. In the global narrow web market, the name BST eltromat stands for diversity and flexibility,” says Ingo Ellerbrock, Head of Product Management.
In the web monitoring and 100% inspection area, the product line ranges from the TubeScan family 100% inspection systems of partner Nyquist Systems, a member of the BST group of companies since the beginning of 2019, and the POWERScope 5000 video web monitoring system to the iPQ-View and iPQ-Check high-end systems. Kai Prahl, Regional Sales Manager for BST eltromat in Germany, says: “These systems provide label and packaging printers with practically everything they need for quality control. At LABELEXPO EUROPE, we will present a variety of exhibits to showcase the latest fields of application.”
Web guiding systems from BST eltromat are widely used in the narrow web market as well. For example, many label printing machines are equipped with the CompactGuide web guiding system. EcoGuide supplements the portfolio and impresses customers in narrow web packaging printing with a strong price-performance ratio. Both web guiding systems are available in a range of sizes and can be flexibly adapted to individual requirements. The comprehensive range of sensors from BST eltromat covers practically all requirements in web guiding as well. In label and packaging printing, the high-performance CLS Pro 600 digital line and contrast sensor is frequently used.
Register control is another area in which BST eltromat will showcase its market-leading position under the slogan of “perfecting your performance” in Brussels. “With sensor innovations in particular and continuously simplified operation as well, we are regularly expanding the options for customers to work on a consistently high level in their printing processes when it comes to register control,” explains Dieter Jochmann, Product Manager for register control at BST eltromat. In Brussels, the company will also show the AR 4400 register control for offset, hybrid, and label printing machines and the FSS 15 ink fountain control. In this way, BST eltromat is emphasizing its ongoing commitment to the offset printing market. In offset printing, the AR 4400 interacts perfectly with the FSS 15.
With an eye on the topics of operating comfort and setup process automation, BST eltromat is presenting two new software options for the modular iPQ-Center, in Brussels: COLOR DATAPreparation and SMART DATAPreparation. It includes four seamlessly integrated high-end modules for quality control and management in web printing. With their range of functions, they cover virtually all of the market’s current requirements. For example, SMART DATAPreparation links the iPQ-Center with ERP (enterprise resource planning) systems so the iPQ-Center can directly use data from other systems.
“Two years ago at LABELEXPO EUROPE, we used a project study to demonstrate the interaction between the MeasureColor color management software from Colorware and iPQ-Spectral for inline spectral color measurement. At this year’s exhibition, we will be demonstrating a tried and true, completely automated configuration process in which the iPQ-Spectral receives information via MeasureColor. Further, in conjunction with Hybrid Software we will show how to integrate the SMART DATAPreparation option for the iPQ-Center with Hybrid Software’s solutions, which close the gap between e-commerce portals, pre-press stage workflows, and MIS/ERP systems,” reveals Dr. Daniel Bohn, Product Manager for Color and Workflow at BST eltromat.
