Sustainability - from buzzword to added value

Go to the online event
The reduction of waste during the entire roll to roll process lowers both, your costs and ecological footprint. Well, this is of course nothing new - but our new camera based guiding sensor is. With the brand new CLS CAM 100 an additional steering line is not needed anymore as you can guide to any part of the design. However, this is only one component out of many BST solutions along web running processes. BST helps you to benefit from data exchange within closed loop applications for highest accuracy, quality and productivity.

Web Guiding

Highest precision for your web guiding

Aligned to your production:
In their scope and automation level, BST 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 contrasts.

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.

IPQ Spectral and Measure Color – inline color measurement for professionals.

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.
