Baldwin Technology Company, the world’s leading innovator of advanced color-management solutions and inspection technology for the printing industry, will present its “Complete Quality Control Solutions” for printing and inspection at the High-Security Printing Latin America Conference, held June 5 to 7 in Nassau, Bahamas. Baldwin experts will be on hand at booth C4.
Baldwin’s Complete Solutions feature the state-of-the-art Guardian PQV 100% Print Inspection camera systems that can be mounted on one or both sides of the product to perform 100% print-quality inspection, verify variable data and inspect the most challenging security print features. The system offers lighting options for all materials and substrates, as well as for special applications, including holograms, overt and covert serialization and barcoding, covert security features, and more.
The Guardian PQV can also be retrofitted to existing presses, machines, and transports. As part of a data-connected defect-management workflow, the Guardian PQV is a feature-rich inline defect-detection system that enables printers to find and remove defects quickly—and monitor their processes to prevent defects from occurring again or repeatedly. This technology provides complete print-quality verification from prepress through production, reporting and archiving for perfect runs.
Offline Complete Solutions can be any combination of feeders (roll or sheet), vacuum tables, inspection systems, inkjet printers, UV ink-curing systems, reject gates and bins, sheet stackers, and real-time monitoring and reporting tools. Alongside Baldwin’s technologies, optional solution components can be joined together through partnerships with industry-leading suppliers to create a world-class solution.
“Our Complete Solutions provides security printers with the ability to improve quality, manage defects and add value to their product,” said Gerry Stanford, Baldwin’s Global Sales Leader for Security Print. “Printers can also prevent future waste by monitoring and improving their processes with valuable performance data in hand.”
“What makes Baldwin unique in the industry is that customers can work with us as a primary partner and leverage our extensive experience in providing both inline retrofit and off-line stand-alone complete quality control solutions,” said Erwin Wagner, Baldwin’s Global Sales Manager for Security Print. “With the modular and highly configurable nature of our solutions, printers can start with an arrangement that meets today’s business needs and budget, and easily upgrade and expand to accommodate future requirements.”
