QuadTech® Register Guidance System with MultiCam®

For Commercial and Newspaper

The Register Guidance System with MultiCam is a closed-loop color-to-color register control system designed to work on the ICON™ integrated platform with other QuadTech products including the Color Control System, the Ribbon Control System, and Data Central Reporting™.

Features

  • Quicken makeready, minimize errors and reduce waste. Camera functions can be preset with information from the press controls themselves or from the ICON setup library – including mark position information.
  • QuadTech’s fan-out control software automatically keeps your system in lateral register across the full width of the web throughout the entire run.
  • Anti-embossing, another option, is designed to compensate for a variety of press and paper issues, while allowing your operators to maintain their normal blanket-wash cycle.
  • QuadTech‘s cocking control solution automatically adjusts your system’s cocking motors to realign circumferential register when plate cocking changes occur.
  • You can incorporate your choice of enhancements from an extensive portfolio of options, including ink guiding to improve print-to-slitter registration, as well as direct-printing control.
