Makeready can be both extremely frustrating and costly for printers. From consumers who openly criticize bad packaging on social media to customers who can face legal consequences if a defective product is sold, printers are under pressure from many directions to pursue absolute quality. An Inspection System that is dependable, with advanced technology and sophisticated algorithms can save money by reducing time and waste.
A streak on a dollar bill. A spot on a playing card. A blue-tinged baby on a package of diapers. All three of these are examples of major issues that printers face when working to ensure customers receive flawless materials. Errors can be both costly and detrimental to customer retention.
Ideally, errors are caught without stopping the press and a reliable inspection system acts like a safety net for each run. Learn more about how QuadTech’s Inspection System on IconTM defines, detects, and stops defects in their tracks.
Think back to the last time you were car shopping. After making your decision about the make and model, did you think, “What color should I get?” It might seem trivial, but research shows that the majority of consumer purchases include the buyer’s assessment of color. According to the research study Color sells: How the psychology of color influences consumers, “Color significantly influences consumer purchases, so much so that it accounts for 85% of the reason why someone decides to purchase a product.” (Tornetta, Fox, Blackbird)
ColorTrack with InkControl™ is a unique new color management software product for flexo and gravure packaging applications. Without any hardware modifications to the press, QuadTech’s ColorTrack software seamlessly integrates with ink recipe software to not only simplify workflow, but also dramatically reduce the number of ink corrections needed to achieve accurate, optimal color. With this advanced technology, a press operator is able to easily collect and process color measurements in order to facilitate the correction of ink formulations.
