QuadTech: Partnership with Muller Martini

QuadTech’s SpectralCam enables Muller Martini customers to automatically measure and control colour on both paper and film.

USA  QuadTech announces a partnership with Muller Martini Press Division to provide the QuadTech Color Control System with SpectralCam, for Muller Martini Alprinta V, Concepta and VSOP web offset presses.

The partnership now enables Muller Martini customers to ensure accurate colour information for the entire web and throughout the print run, and automatically measure and control colour on both paper and film.

The QuadTech web stabilizer technology achieves this control by momentarily smoothing and flattening the film substrate, at full press speed, for accurate colour measurement. The solution is also available to existing Muller Martini customers as a retrofit option, and according to the company, typically provides a return-on-investment (ROI) within 1 – 1.5 years.

Prior to the availability of the QuadTech system, Muller Martini customers would typically use a manual process to measure colour on films. This would be done by cutting sections from the web, usually during make-ready, and then at the end at changeover. As a result, colour defects would often be captured too late, leading to costly production stoppages and substrate waste.
