The Packing Gauge AMG is suitable for any cylinder diameter and is available in sizes S, M, and L. The AMG measures and digitally displays the height of the blanket or the printing plate above the bearer or measuring ring in an instant, even for cylinders that are difficult to reach. The AMG L can even be used for measuring the height of varnish plates or flexography clichés. Due to its convenient size, the device can be placed on the printing plate or blanket with only one hand and can be used without it needing to be rotated or moved.
This allows the measured values to be precisely recorded without any infl uence due to pressure variations or inaccurate cylinder parallelism during placement. The measured values can be saved during the measurement and easily read outside of the press.
The Contact Pressure Tester CONPRESS II has successfully proven itself to be irreplaceable during printing press assembly and service, e. g. for offset presses. It allows the control of the contact pressure between the bearer rings of printing presses by comparing the calculated actual value to a predetermined setpoint value, thus easing the ajustment. A very thin, fine paper measurement strip is pressed between the activated bearer rings. The resulting line or roll impact is analysed optoelectronically. For roll impacts, the device is able to provide information about the pressure distribution along the width of the bearer ring contact zone. Based on the analysis, the printing press settings can be optimised, ensuring consistent print quality and prolonging the lifetime of the cylinder bearers.
The LUCHS Register Measuring System is today used worldwide for the quality control, adjustment and error analysis of printing presses. It is able to measure the transfer, front-to-back and feed register of multicolour printing presses. Optionally, the device can be used to measure the folding and cutting register as well. The measurement is carried out by recording and analysing special measuring elements located at different positions on the printed sheet and takes fractions of a second to complete. The fully automatic analysis assigns the measured results to the different printing units and positions on the printed sheet and summarises the results in various graphs. The fourth generation of the LUCHS Register Measuring System features a completely new device concept and new measuring elements. The application areas can therefore be expanded beyond offset printing, like flexography and digital printing. The scope of delivery comprises only of the handheld measuring head - connectible to an already available laptop by USB.
PITSID GmbH We set high standards in the graphic arts industry.
The PITSID (Polygraphische innovative Technik Leipzig GmbH) was founded in 1999. As a sister company of the Sächsisches Institut für die Druckindustrie Leipzig (SID), the company works in close cooperation with the research institute. The main business is the production, marketing and service of highly innovative test and measuring equipment for the printing industry.
The ultra-modern products are perfectly tailored according to the requirements of the printing industry and cover a broad range of applications for different tasks. Among other things PITSID offers systems for highly precise register measurement or printing plate positioning, measurement of pressures, roller settings, packing height or IPA concentration in the fountain solution. Also solutions for the determination of the curing of UV ink and varnish, or the measurement of the strength of book blocks are part of the portfolio.
As different as the fields of application are, as clear is the common denominator: PITSID measuring and testing devices combine highest precision with easy operation. Therefore, today the daily work of the international printing industry is hard to image without many of the products.
