BETAFOLD CREASE & FOLD ANALYZER

Beta Industries introduces the first Quality Control tool for the folding carton industry. The BetaFold Crease & Fold Analyzer for the analysis and correction of folds/creases in production for the folding carton industry for high end folding products such as perfume, confections, cosmetic, cigarette boxes, and all other folding carton types were "getting it right" is primary to appearance and profitability.

The BetaFold Crease & Fold Analyzer is designed to bring the advantages of quality control to the creasing and folding portion of the folding carton industry.

Until now, the largest sector of the packaging industry has operated without the benefit of process control. Complex creasing, diecutting, and embossing operations were run "by the seat of the pants", relying on skilled operators, rules of thumb, and highly subjective judgment, but no more.

The BetaFold is a portable, hand-held sensor that captures an image of the diecut and creased flat sample prior to folding and glueing. Fully automatic analysis of crease height, width, angles, and symmetry is done on the PC. The data is automatically saved to a database with NO USER INTERVENTION required.

The device is uniquely suited to both in-depth analysis of the many variables that affect the finished product by skilled managers and QC staff , as well as quick grab-samples by low-skill production workers.

The new high resolution BetaFold system is portable and easy to use.

Data and images are easily captured and printed with the integral report generator and statistical analyzer.

The system maintains a database of job setup parameters and production samples. All of this is combined with the high precision, ease of use, and Beta product support that has made the Beta name the standard of the industry in flexographic analyzers.

Measure crease and channel width, depth, angles, and symmetry
Save images and data with a single click
Display, save, and print data for complete control
The BetaFold Crease & Fold Analyzer incorporates a rugged, handheld, non-contact optical sensor that captures an image of the crease or fold and automatically displays, analyzes, and records the data in the Windows software. When used for package design, material and process evaluation, or machine make-ready, detailed information is available to the professional.

In the high-volume production environment the machine operator needs only one click on each critical detail to automatically capture production data in the database. Statistics are automatically calculated and formatted reports are generated for documentation and process control.

Folding cartons are made of paperboard and the multi-layer construction contributes bending stiffness to the board. In order to make a high quality fold with good appearance and structural integrity, the bending stiffness has to be reduced by the creasing matrix. This localized weakening of the board in a well-defined pattern act as hinges during the subsequent box forming process.

Uncontrolled variations in the creasing process can create defects that affect the appearance and function of the finished carton. Proper setup is critical to assure a consistent product. BetaFold is a new hardware and software system to measure and document the dimensions, angles, and symmetry of the crease and the bead. This aids in proper setup and offers a method of process control to the production run.

CREASING breaks fiber bonds between plies, allowing controlled delamination and creating a hinge

  • MEASURE Bead crease, folding angle
  • VERIFY Bead height, width, symmetry, fold points
  • DOCUMENT crease images and data, generate reports and statistics
  • IMAGE and ANALYZE bead dimensions
  • CREATE Production reports with images and statistics
  • DETECT changes in die penetration due to knife wear

CONTROL

  • Faster creasing makeready
  • Minimize cracks and splitting
  • Reduce running defects and waste
  • Improve package performance and profits 

ANALYSIS

  • Measure sample vs production crease parameters
  • Detect ink and coating effects on folds
  • Verify proper drying and environmental conditions
  • Track die performance vs time and operator


The ADVANCED software option adds extensive customization options to the dieline diagram, reporting, and data collection functions. Generic box diagrams are replaced with the actual die diagram, greatly improving the production workers understanding of the areas to be tested, etc. Networked data collection is also implemented, allowing data to be checked across different production locations.

BETACORR CORRUGATED ANALYZER

The BetaCorr Corrugated Analyzer (Unique Beta Product) to measure and correct production issues for high end/high value corrugated packaging; POP displays, apparel, wine, consumer, gift packaging, electronics boxes, and more.

The BetaCorr Corrugated Analyzer is compact, portable, and highly repeatable to measure critical corrugating production parameters; flute profile, creasing, and washboard effect.

The BetaCorr Analyzer's optical analysis method offers the corrugated packaging industry the same advantages now enjoyed by the folding carton and flexo sectors.

BetaCorr uses structured illumination, anamorphic imaging, and automatic image stitching and analysis combine what have always been mutually exclusive properties; vertical resolution better than 0.0005 inch and a field of view greater than 1.5 inches, offering extremely high sensitivity to height variations and the ability to measure the coarsest fluting. Operation is simple and intuitive for the production worker, the data and images are automatically collected and analyzed to satisfy the most critical QC manager.

The success of any packaging is critically linked to its appearance. The appearance of your packaging is the only possibility to make your product stand out from all the others. The many advantages of corrugated in strength, weight, and environmental friendliness are immediately lost when washboard effect, cockling, and fluting defects spoil its appearance. The BetaCorr brings these defects under control and helps you produce a better and more profitable product.

Beta EyeScan Customized Color Bars

"EyeScan" Customized Color Bars are the only color bars made to match your press's exact spacing and ink key zones, using grey balance targets in every zone, they are the best and easiest way to achieve press color. A thorough and as well as intuitive system to put more jobs on press faster, greatly reducing wasted make ready. Compare to other random, generic color bars that make color and image adjustment much more difficult, time consuming and costly.

What is Grey Balance? Grey Balance is a simple system that is both visually and instrumentally verifiable and understood by color professionals to most easily achieve production color. It combines cyan, magenta, and yellow to produce a visual grey. It eliminates much of the guess work and experimentation used to get to color on press.

With A Glance the press operator easily sees the slightest change in gray balance and color density while measuring color values using a BetaColor Densitometer, (Models S4 Xpress, S4, or Spectro-Dens 2000) or other, to quickly adjust ink keys for perfect balance across the sheet.

BETA DIGITAL RULER - NON-CONTACT DISTANCE MEASUREMENT

BETA HIGH PRECISION ELECTRONIC RULER

Non-Contact Measurement of Large and Small Distances

The Beta Digital Electronic Ruler allows precise, non-contact measurements of large and small distances.

Small details such as barcode lines can be measured within the eyepiece of the 50x microscope, while the cross hair in the microscope is used to locate larger details when moving the readout along the beam.

The hardened stainless steel beam eliminates the shortcomings of fragile glass scales. The compund microscope and reticle place the crosshairs in precisely the same plane as the object, eliminating the parallax errors common to all low-power magnifiers.

All Digital Rulers include a rugged fitted case.

Please specify an INCH or METRIC reticle for the eyepiece of the microscope. The electronic scale display allows you to switch between INCH and METRIC units.

BETA VIDEO & ELECTRONIC RULERS NON-CONTACT MEASUREMENT

The Beta Video Ruler allows precise, non-contact measurements of large and small distances on Films, Plates, Dies, and Prints.

Small features are measured directly on the monitor by dragging the cursor across them. Large distances are measured by marking the starting point with the auto-snap cursor on screen. The camera and scale encoder are then moved to the opposite end of object. The cursor is then moved to within auto-snap distance and the total length is calculated and displayed on screen. This high-precision length gauge makes it possible to easily and accurately measure distances between marks with no physical edge to engage a caliper or micrometer.

The unique Video Color Separation system adds an extremely useful function when measurements are needed of process or spot color images, particularly when pastel colors or low-contrast images are involved. The process yellow image is nearly impossible to see against white paper even under magnification. Utilizing the adjustable separation system the color of interest is separated from the background and other interfering colors. It is converted to grayscale and displayed in real-time on the monitor while using the measuring functions. Offset, flexo, and screenprint registration marks are now easy to see and measure. Inkjet defects such as scatter, comets, and clumping are now easily imaged and measured.

Analyze and adjust film- and image-setter geometry over distances as large as 80 inches (2000mm). With an 80 inch scale you can measure the height, width, and diagonals of a 56.5 inch test square with a resolution of .001 inches.

BETA FLUO - UV INK INVISIBLE INK DENSITOMETER

BETACOLOR FLUO – Make Invisible Ink Quality Visible

The invisible ink densitometer protecting your brand while improving print quality

Today’s global market is rife with risks of product tampering, diversion, and black markets, leading to billions in lost revenue every year. A manufacturer’s retail product is the first and often only opportunity to convey their message of quality and build the customer’s confidence in the brand.

Many technologies exist to protect your labels, packaging, and products from the threats of counterfeiting. Optical, mechanical, and electronic systems offer varying degrees of protection at various price points.

When the product is the printed piece itself, such as currency and security printing, “invisible ink” systems offer many advantages. Colorless fluorescent inks are undetectable by the user and cannot be copied. With the proper tools, the image from the invisible ink appears, allowing the article to be verified as authentic, defeating counterfeiting and substitution of your product.

These specialized inks are created to respond to UV (ultraviolet) light of certain wavelengths, glowing red, green, or blue depending on the composition of the fluorescent pigments. Additional security can be obtained by using inks that fluoresce one color with 365nm UV illumination and a different color under 255nm UV.

The use of this technology does not require an upgrade to existing printing press or plate systems. The brand protection elements are printed using these colorless UV fluorescent inks. It is now widely understood that high quality print production requires control of solid ink density, dot gain, and ink shade. Conventional densitometers and colorimeters are used to implement these Quality Control procedures with conventional inks to adjust and control the visual appearance of the printed piece.

Printing with “invisible ink” presents a different sort of problem, now solved with the Beta FLUO Invisible ink Densitometer.

Equipped with a 365nm (near UV) and optionally with a 280nm or 255nm (far UV) light source, this rugged, easy-to-use instrument is ideally suited for use in the press room and in the QC lab. The device is calibrated to the substrate and target fluorescence at the beginning of the press run. Inking

is adjusted during the press run to maintain consistent fluorescence in the same manner that normal colors are monitored and controlled. Target fidelity and brand protection are now optimized.

Two control modes are available with the FLUO;

INTENSITY Control measures the overall intensity of the fluorescence
COLOR Control measures the visual color effect of the fluorescence
(1) Controlling the intensity of the fluorescent signal is analogous to controlling the density or ink film thickness of a conventional color on press. The REFERENCE value is set to zero at the start of the press run. Positive numbers on the current sample indicate a higher level of fluorescence than the REFERENCE, a negative number indicate level lower than what is required.

(2) Controlling the color of the fluorescence is comparable to gray balance control with conventional inks. Overprints or specially formulated multi-pigment inks can be used to create special color effects. The FLUO operates as a colorimeter, giving true color appearance information, rather than a densitometer, giving only ink film thickness information.

FLUO Color Mode operates like the human eye, measuring true color appearance.

Color Control Mode is simplified with the use of the FLUOcol software. Connected to the USB data port on the FLUO instrument, measurements are automatically translated into color appearance information similar to CIE Lab. Deviation from the REFERENCE color is calculated as delta F (fluorescent color difference) and delta I (intensity difference).

Achieving repeatable fluorescent intensity and fluorescent color is now possible with the FLUO Invisible Ink Densitometer and FLUOcol software. Automatic data collection and color graphical display make it easy for the press operator to match the standard and the QC manager to verify quality reproduction of the brand protection and authentication marks.

The Beta Fluo comes in three versions:

  1. FLUO BASIC Single UV LED for Near (365nm)
  2. FLUO BASIC PLUS Dual UV LED for Near (365nm) and Far (280nm) UV Ink Analysis
  3. FLUO ADVANCED Dual UV LED for Near (365nm) and Far (254nm) UV ink Analysis

BETACOLOR PRESTO DELTA E COLORIMETER at $2,499

Betacolor PRESTO Delta E Colorimeter

At $2,499 the Betacolor PRESTO Delta E is an easy-to-use press room densitometer that provides Delta E (dE2000) at essentially half the cost of other units but also with an important difference.

Your customers reward you with repeat business based on price, service, and the quality of your color match. You don’t get compliments for running at the proper density, no one is interested if your dot gain is just right, and gray balance won‘t sway the print buyer. The quality of your color match to the proof, the corporate color, or the customer’s sample determines the success of the job.

Color match is no longer a subjective evaluation or an expert opinion. Until recently, costly and complicated spectrophotometers operated by highly skilled technicians were needed to collect spectral reflectance data and determine L*a*b* coordinates. Software calculated the distance between two points in three-dimensional color space and the color difference, delta E, or dE2000 was determined.

The new Betacolor PRESTO Delta E is a portable and affordable instrument that puts color difference information in the hands of the operator on the production floor. The large, clear display automatically shows the delta E value between the reference and the sample. With the touch of a button the operator sees the density correction needed to bring the appearance within tolerance. The operator’s job is simplified, waste is minimized, and the color match meets the customer’s requirements.

Verifying the appearance of the job with the delta E function and controlling the print process with the density and dot gain functions gives the operator everyting needed for a perfect job.

Take advantage of the efficiency of gray balance control and the G7 methodology to keep process work within specs. Our exclusive Magic Color Match simplifies special color control and keeps them on target.
