LithoFlash Inline systems sustainably improve the productivity of your existing or new printing machines, guaranteeing enormous savings by combining fastest inline measurement speed with density control.

Inline Measurement and Control System for Offset Printing.

Reduced make-ready time increases job throughput. High waste savings directly lower substrate costs. Moreover, the use of a measurement and control system additionally ensures production quality and color consistency throughout the run.

Application Areas:

  • For sheet-fed and web offset printing machines with a production width of 52-205 cm
  • Measurement and control of the densities of process inks and special colors
  • Monitoring of tone value increase, print contrast and trapping parameters

Customer Benefits:

  • High savings thanks to LithoDyn dynamic control
  • Minimal energy costs due to flashing LED
  • Clearly structured user-friendly interface
  • Definable print control strips
  • Effective protection against contamination thanks to innovative glass/visor system
  • Long service life and low operating costs
  • Can be adapted to various printing machines

    The Smartest ROI Decision you can make for your shop

    1. Paper Waste will be greatly reduced with less pulls for color correction. Our customers average a 30% reduction in paper waste.
    2. Time will be saved on each make-ready by eliminating color pulls for offline scanning. Our customers average a 20% reduction in make ready time.
    3. Labor Savings – Overtime will be reduced due to additional job capacity. The pressman also has more time to tend to other duties, job reporting, job preparation, etc. This makes for a more proficient press crew or frees up the helper to assist on multiple presses.
    4. Ink Savings – There is an ink savings due to the reduction of paper waste.
    • Average Sheets saved per Makeready – 150
    • Average Makeready time – 10-15 minutes
    • Average Ink savings – 40%
