Grafikontrol supports SIT

The shut collaboration between the SIT GROUP and GRAFIKONTROL continues in an effort to assure “top quality and nil defects” for the supplies produced and used within the meals packaging sector

SIT Group is among the fundamental gravure and flexo printers, with 4 manufacturing websites wherein they create options for any want in versatile packaging.
The group is supplied with each rotogravure and flexographic printing machines adopted by quite a few lamination and slicing traces.
The partnership between the SIT Group and Grafikontrol began in 2016 with the design of the brand new San Marino manufacturing unit (wherein 4 new gravure presses had been then put in) and with the acquisition of latest technology flexographic presses and lamination traces for the Pesaro and Stanghella (Padua) crops. To this challenge is added the acquisition of the Cremonese firm ACM, specialised within the printing of slender internet packaging.

Grafikontrol’s alternative for uncompromising high quality in any respect levels of printing and changing
The bold transformation challenge that introduced the SIT group to the very best European ranges additionally included an funding within the newest technology applied sciences to make sure the very best print high quality. Indeed, the SIT group needed to attain high quality requirements equivalent to to ensure that the fabric, which shall be used for packaging, can be free from any form of defect, whether or not structural (within the help itself or for defects that might compromise its integrity) both for the graphic look of the product or info to the ultimate buyer.

In evaluating the varied suppliers, Grafikontrol was chosen, as a result of it was capable of present technologically superior techniques relevant to all manufacturing processes from printing to lamination and coating.
In this manner the SIT group has unified Grafikontrol’s TQC360 ° platform. By putting in 100% inspection techniques on all manufacturing machines of all 4 crops it was potential to enhance the standard management guaranteeing the uniformity of the completed product.
Grafikontrol is an organization primarily based in Milan, current available on the market since 1969; for about 20 years it has concentrated its exercise on the research, improvement and manufacturing of high quality management techniques within the manufacturing course of for the printing and changing trade. The utility of Grafikontrol techniques has been prolonged to all manufacturing sectors: printing, lamination, coating, slitting, rewinding, metallization and extrusion.

The Grafikontrol TQC360 ° modular platform
What has made Grafikontrol the protagonist and successful right this moment is exactly the modern TQC360 ° modular platform, developed internally, which gives clients an entire answer to ensure high quality. With TQC360°, Grafikontrol presents itself as a broad-spectrum provider for printers and converters: merchandise, purposes, processes and companies of excellence with excessive efficiency, make it, within the eyes of the shopper, an “all-round provider”. TQC360 ° merchandise are characterised by excessive flexibility and flexibility to any printing course of, permitting the shopper to begin with a configuration and implement it at any time.

Paolo De Grandis

“With the SIT group we have now created a tailored challenge”, states Paolo De Grandis gross sales director and co-owner of Grafikontrol – “on every machine, we put in a 100% inspection system on the printed aspect and, the place vital, the identical on the again aspect for the management of cold-seal. The Matrix C / S twin matrix digital camera inspection controls have been inserted on the laminators / coaters to manage the entrance to again register with visible and audible alarm in case the register exceeds the tolerance.
The forthcoming step is to convey all the information coming from the machines in a single Server for evaluation and session by any approved person, even remotely”.

Data evaluation for an more and more environment friendly and 4.0 manufacturing
“Having inspection techniques put in on all equipment has allowed us to extend and intercept in actual time all these defects which might be generated within the varied manufacturing processes and find them exactly contained in the rolls to allow them to be eliminated within the subsequent stage, typically on the slitters. In this manner we’re sure to ensure our finish clients a product free from imperfections”, says  Massimo Suriano technical director of SIT Group, including – “the provision of those new applied sciences, particularly in our manufacturing division, offers the chance to our individuals to be extra skilled and to really feel concerned in enterprise choices. Our operators have favorably accepted the brand new techniques for his or her simplicity as a result of their use is thru graphic and multi-touch video interfaces as in trendy cell phones or tablets, and since they instantly understood that these devices may present nice help to their job. Grafikontrol was additionally very open to use some adjustments to the techniques, satisfying our requests, exactly to adapt them to our wants and our course of routines”.

Future initiatives, at all times with a view to course of automation
The initiatives of the SIT group for whole high quality management and manufacturing effectivity don’t cease there and with Grafikontrol section 2 is being deliberate (section 1 has been accomplished equipping all machines with 100% inspection techniques) which consists in connecting all inspection techniques within the buyer community, assembly the idea of Industry 4.0, and implementing them with an modern and distinctive system available on the market for tracing defects, at all times developed by Grafikontrol, and referred to as Easy-Tracker.

EASY-TRACKER is the latest system for coding and tracing defects throughout the whole manufacturing course of. The use of modern {hardware} and software program, solely developed by Grafikontrol, permit an correct removing of defects throughout the slitting stage. In the primary course of, printing or lamination, a variable code (sync-code) is printed with a high-speed INK-JET marker (as much as 550 m / min) at common intervals on the sting of the online; the sync-code comprises the roll knowledge: job quantity, roll quantity and meter size.

Whenever a defect is detected by the 100% inspection system (PROGREX PLUS / LYNEX PLUS) its place alongside the size of the online is instantly paired with the closest sync-code. At the top of every roll, the system generates a data-report containing all of the defects detected and the associated sync-codes.
The knowledge collected by all inspection techniques – referring to defects – are conveyed to a central server (NAS) which could be accessed from any location. Each roll is registered with a singular identification code which corresponds to a map of defects and could be modified by the standard management division (modifying). Once digitally sanitized, the information of every single roll are saved once more to be used by the operators on the slitters. When a roll is mounted on the slitter for its processing, the operator downloads the relative map – an intuitive graphic doc on which all detected defects are highlighted – which incorporates images, dimensions, form and place of all defects.

The place is key and crucial as a result of it’s essential to be very exact in routinely stopping the slitter within the precise level relative to the defect to be eradicated: that is the place Grafikontrol has undertaken to create Easy-Tracker, a system able to exactly synchronizing the defect with the precise meter of the roll.
With this modern system the pace and the effectivity of the entire course of are elevated, because of the automated stops within the slitter, the elimination of defects is extraordinarily simple.

“In addition to the SIT group, different massive worldwide teams had been impressed and enthusiastic in regards to the improvements and performances in inspection and high quality management, which introduced them to decide on Grafikontrol as their most popular provider”, states Paolo De Grandis.
Grafikontrol, whose motto is “Inspired by Technology”, continues to increase and enhance its techniques as expertise makes obtainable higher {hardware} and extra highly effective software program.
New options, presently present process industrial testing of their beta model with associate clients, shall be introduced throughout crucial market occasions.
