Baldwin Technology, one of the world’s innovators of advanced color-management solutions and inspection technologies for the printing industry, will present its complete solution for printing and inspection at the Tax Stamp and Traceability Forum, to be held from 16 – 18 May in Malta.

Baldwin’s complete solution can be any combination of feeders (roll or sheet), vacuum tables, inspection systems, inkjet printers, UV ink-curing systems, reject gates and bins, sheet stackers, and real-time monitoring and reporting tools. Alongside Baldwin’s technologies, optional solution components can be joined together through partnerships with industry suppliers to create a world-class solution.

“Our complete solution provides security printers with the ability to improve quality, manage defects and add value to their product,” said Gerry Stanford, Baldwin’s Global sales leader. “Printers can also prevent future waste by monitoring and improving their processes with valuable performance data in hand.”

For advanced defect detection, Baldwin’s Guardian PQV 100% Print Inspection state-of-the-art camera systems can be mounted on one or both sides of the product to perform 100% print-quality inspection, verify variable data and inspect the most challenging security print features. The system offers lighting options for all materials and substrates, as well as for special applications, including holograms, covert serialization, covert security features, and more. The Guardian PQV can also be retrofitted to existing presses, machines, and transports.  

As part of a data-connected defect-management workflow, the Guardian PQV is a feature-rich inline defect-detection system that enables printers to find and remove defects quickly—and monitor their processes to prevent defects from occurring again or repeatedly. This technology provides complete print-quality verification from prepress through production, reporting, and archiving for perfect runs.

“What makes our complete solution unique in the industry is that customers can work with Baldwin as a single source for components from the best technology manufacturers in our industry,” said Erwin Wagner, Baldwin’s Global sales manager. “With the modular and highly configurable nature of the complete solution, printers can start with an arrangement that meets today’s business needs and budget, and easily upgrade and expand to accommodate future requirements.”

Baldwin recently realigned its sales teams to optimize service and simplify access to its process-improvement and consumables technologies for printing and packaging customers in more than 100 countries. Two new sales professionals have since joined the team, covering smaller regional geographies and providing customers with a single point of contact for all of Baldwin’s product lines.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
