QuadTech® Color Control and Web Inspection System with AccuCam™

For Commercial and Newspaper

The Color Control and Web Inspection System with AccuCam™ is a closed loop color control system that is designed to work on the ICON™ integrated platform. It uses a proprietary 6-channel spectral sensor and our patented technology to provide CIELAB-based color control. It also provides fast detection of scumming, plate verification, and other inspection capabilities.

  • Water control to maintain the ideal balance of ink and plate dampening.
  • The ability to rapidly adjust density compensation and maintain quality.
  • Our unique 6-channel spectral sensor technology has no competition when it comes to accuracy and consistency. That means minimized operator intervention.
  • Consistent color and ink fountain ball control to avoid overinking and reduce ink usage.
  • Quick detection of plating errors.
  • Notification of scumming at initial onset for quick adjustment by the operator.
  • Built to work with QuadTech’s ICON™ integrated platform, our system enables operators to run multiple press controls from a single operator control station.
  • Our intuitive user interface has minimal screens and buttons. No need to navigate through extensive screens to accomplish the job.
