QuadTech Offers Web Viewing System

Expanding Product Line Expected to Reduce Costs for Printers & Converters in the Packaging Industry

Sussex, WI--4 January 2010--QuadTech, Inc., the worldwide leader and innovator of press control technology, today announced the addition of a Web Viewing System to its expanding product line for printers and converters in the Packaging industry. The system is available for purchase worldwide as of January 1, 2010.

With direct, real-time digital viewing of the moving web, the QuadTech Web Viewing System enables operators to detect defects and register errors before they become visible to the human eye. Operators can quickly and easily detect print quality problems such as print and die-cut registration, perforations, streaks, voids, fills, damaged plates and more.

“Printers are facing ever-escalating quality control challenges,” said Randy Freeman, QuadTech Vice President and General Manager of Packaging. “Our Web Viewing System gives them an additional tool that will enhance quality and reduce waste without sacrificing press speed.”

The Web Viewing System complements the rest of the QuadTech product line for the Packaging market, which includes the Autotron™ Register Guidance System 2600 with ClearLogic™, Inspection System, Inspection System with SpectralCam™, Offline Inspection System, PDF Verification, Data Central® for Inspection, and Waste Management System.

“Besides the production cost savings, our customers will benefit from dealing with one supplier for inspection, defect detection, register and color control, and waste management,” said Freeman. “There are significant savings on installation and service costs when you deal with a unified solutions provider.”

The addition of the Web Viewing System represents another major move into the Packaging market for QuadTech. In 2008, QuadTech acquired print inspection technology innovator Vigitek, a leading manufacturer of state-of-the-art print defect detection technology.
