Web Guiding

Highest precision for your web guiding:
BST eltromat web guiding.

Aligned to your production:
In their scope and automation level, BST eltromat web
guiding systems exactly comply with the requirements
of your production process when
it comes to scope and automation level.

Controlling systems for each processing degree:
How the path of your production web is best controlled
depends on the processing level of the web. Unprocessed
webs may only be adjusted by means of the web edge or
web centre-line, since the web itself does not have any
further contrast features. Finished webs, on the other hand,
offer more options for sensor-based position detection
thanks to, for example, printed lines and freely selectable

Web guiding types
Regarding the web edge guiding, guiding is realised depending
on the left or right web edge by means of an edge sensor.
During web centre-line guiding, two edge sensors detect
the position of the web centre-line as the basis for the position
setting. Contrast controlling procedures are oriented on
continuous or broken printed lines or a contrast edge.
Precision due to experience
As the leading manufacturer of quality-assuring systems for
the web processing industries, BST eltromat International has
already installed more than 100,000 systems in over 100
countries worldwide.

Product category: Colour measurement and control systems


iPQ-Spectral allows you to comply with pre-defined color standards
by performing inline measurements within your printing
machine during productions. This means measurements after roll
changes using print samples with hand-held devices are no longer

Fully-automated measurement
• provides easy operator setup
• permanently records color data during the job
• objectively evaluates the color data and will trigger warnings
and alarms if the preset tolerances are exceeded
• logs color deviations and generates a job report

This on press monitoring allows for a rapid response to color deviations,
resulting in reduction of waste. Furthermore, you will get
a deeper insight into your printing process. Evaluation of the data
enables you to optimize the internal production processes, thus
gaining a competitive edge because cost savings can be easily identified.
In summary, the spectral inline color measurement system will
help you to create an economical printing process that will also
consistently impress customers with the highest possible color

Surface Inspection

Defects - iPQ-Check surface:

Improved material and surface properties are the main reason for the coating
and laminating of substrates. No defects are allowed to influence this new
and improved functionality. Typical defects like coating streaks or delamination
defects need to be detected and alarmed to the operator, also a later elimination
of the defects needs to be supported in the workflow. The iPQ-Check surface
is the ideal system for implementing a zero defect quality control solution during

100% Inspection - iPQ-Check surface

The small and robust camera module has the smallest footprint in the market.
This allows for an easy and low cost integration into the production line.
With its modular architecture the system can be adapted perfectly to many
different applications. The iPQ-Check surface can be equipped with RGB or
monochrome line scan cameras, as well as different types of high performing
LED’s for illumination.

TubeScan eagle view

Web viewing systems are a standard in the converting
and label industry. They are used on almost every printing
press for monitoring registration and overall print
quality and accuracy, and color. The down side of in-line
100 % inspection systems so far has been the heavy
investment, which many printers have avoided, thereby
compromising quality assurance.

The new patented TubeScan eagle view is now bringing
both worlds together: Multiple cameras are combined in
the same housing to offer detailed viewing and 100 %
inspection at the same time. The intuitive touch screen
interface makes setup extremely simple and fast.
