BST North America will showcase its comprehensive range of quality assurance products for label printing and the narrow web market at Labelexpo Americas 2018. This large event for the label and package printing industry will take place from 25-27 September 2018 at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. 

The product fields 100% inspection, web monitoring and web guiding will be the main topics at the booth of BST North America and its subsidiary AccuWeb. At the joint exhibition booth, visitors will find a comprehensive portfolio of solutions that seamlessly cover the label industry’s numerous technical and economic challenges that arise with the web-oriented manufacture of labels. Solutions will be presented that were developed in close contact with customers, both tried and tested solutions as well as newer ones. The inspection systems, the quality assurance systems in the iPQ family, as well as the web guiding systems combine to offer an extensive portfolio of products for all needs in terms of ensuring and controlling quality in web-oriented processes.

“We provide customers in the label and package printing market with a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for quality management in their production operations. Their experience with our systems is that they are reliable and simple to operate, delivering the benefit of fast machine setup times. At BST North America, customer service not only means listening to our customers, but also providing solutions and support,” stated Mark Lambrecht, president of BST North America.

During Labelexpo Americas 2018 visitors to the BST North America booth can see the company’s full line of 100% inspection and web monitoring solutions: the SUPER HANDYScan 4100 and the POWERScope 5000.  Launched in the North American market at the last Labelexpo, the POWERScope 5000 features an extremely high level of operating convenience. It can be operated via the hotkeys of the external keyboard or using the intuitive gesture control of a multitouch monitor. In both cases, operation is reduced to the essential functions, providing maximum user friendliness. The web monitoring system also features a wear-free electronic zoom and outstanding image quality thanks to the high-resolution camera and LED flash. On the same moving web demo, BST North America will introduce the updated SUPER HANDYScan 4100. While the camera unit, monitors, cables and synchronisation remain the same, the SUPER HANDYScan 4100 features a new state-of-the-art controller. The new controller includes an updated user interface, startup screen, and as an added benefit every controller includes TeamViewer for remote access.
