Quality assurance through new Sibress equipments
Sibress, manufacturer of measurement and analysis systems for quality assurance in flexographic and package printing, at Starnberg near Munich, has launched the newly developed SibScope microscope and SibView measurement software on to the market.
The newly developed Sibress SibScope microscope undertakes the task of examining objects such as anilox, gravure and flexo plates, with the highest image quality and precision. At maximum magnification, objects are displayed full-screen with a size of 97 µm, via 80x lenses (relative to 60 cm screen diagonal). SibScope can be used both on round or cylindrical surfaces (from 6 cm diameter) as well as on flat surfaces.
The SibScope microscope can also be used to evaluate flexographic printing plates, with the optionally available Sibress Versatile@Flex software. The Flexo software, well-established in the market over many years now, fully automatically analyses parameters such as dot percentage, dot size, screen ruling, and many more. At the same time, the precise stencil depth of flexo plates can also be determined. Dots can ultimately be examined at the highest resolution, and viewed in real terms. This is specially designed for high-interest HD-flexo applications. The exact height difference between individual dots also allows us to determine the actual circumference of a point at each location.
The combination of both software packages makes SibScope also an ideal solution for flexographic printing operations with their own repro, who want to analyse both their anilox rolls and their flexo plates.
