Automated multi-purpose printability tester with single printing shaft.

New range of Printability testers with integrated, camera based, analysis systems. The range consits of devices with one to six printing shafts for maximum flexibility of test methods. The long range of test methods can be extended with user defined methods. With that it is capable to perform all tests of a Global Standard Tester P plus the tests of a Global Standard Tester 3, inclusive combinations of constant and increasing speed in one test method.

Additionally it is prepared to do on-line analysis of mottling with a camera based analysis system.

  • 1 to 6 printing shafts, each can be equipped with a drive for printing in register if needed
  • Very small interval times, up from 0,02 s
  • Large number of test methods
  • Very easy in operation
  • In-line analysis of several test methods
  • Export of scanned images and results
