Apollo 35K detects a variety of print defects, including color variations, misprints, low contrast defects, mis-registration, spots, and splashes.
The system visually indicates the precise location and type of each defect, while in parallel, the system records all relevant defect data into roll reports. An easy to view color-coded light tower informs operators when a defect is detected, so that errors can be addressed and corrected in real-time.
Apollo 35K provides full process control and trend monitoring, in addition to a comprehensive quality assurance package and ejection mechanism.
The ZeroSet module enables JDF connectivity with an Esko Automation Engine to continuously inspect 100% of the printed material while jobs and designs are changing on press
Equipped with a built-in PrintFlow module, the system automatically stores all job data in job archiving for fast setup in the case of reprints, while detection data is logged into the system’s roll and job reporting, including defect location, defect images, and print quality statistics. Operators use in-line reporting to review job/order/roll reports, edit and export final reports to digital files, or to AVT WorkFlow Link to automatically connect to rewinders or slitters, and efficiently remove defective material prior to shipment. The system’s PrintFlow Manager collects relevant PrintFlow data from multiple systems, so that managers and key personnel can easily monitor, analyze and control production quality from their desktop PCs.
