CyanX is a partner with Unisensor Sensorsysteme GmbH. Unisensor designs and manufactures innovative technologies for the process analysis and quality control of gases, liquids and solids. The cutting-edge products set new standards in high speed and precise automated process inspection and quality control in many industrial applications. However, Cyanx specialise in products available to the print and packaging industry.
Setting a new standard, in 1997 Unisensor introduced the first isopropanol (IPA) control system for offset printing based on infra-red absorption. The Alcoprint 4000 can be retrofitted to most fount solution systems.
In web offset printing (heatset), the paper is coated with a protective and wetting silicon emulsion after drying and before any subsequent operations. This process allows for high quality printed products at high speeds and on wide webs.
The Optoscan 150 is the only system that allows for exact measurement and control of the additive concentration in printing – with or without alcohol. This process ensures constant additive concentration despite fluctuations in the operation of the printing press including colour matching, paper quality and printing speed.
