Automated printability tester, with built-in camera based analysis system

Fully automated, with settings for both constant and increasing speed. Encompases all of the tests of the IGT Global Standard Tester – P and IGT Global Standard Tester-3.

Perform on-line analysis of mottling, with the camera based analysis system. Designed for tests on different substrates and inks in quality control settings and research. Capabilities include:
  • able to test small quantities of ink and substrate under simulated conditions of actual use
  • make colour prints with various inks on different substrates
  • save costs from fewer tests needing to be carried out on press


  • Measuring colour in colour matching systems and spectrophotometers
  • Visual assessment
  • Density measurements, including establishing colour and density tolerances
  • Determining coverage, wear resistance, abrasion resistance, flexibility, adhesion and gloss, ink transfer (g/m2) light fastness  and resistance to chemicals
  • Testing printing quality, mottle, picking, linting, set off, striking through, loose and weakly bound paper particles
Simple to operate – software, touchscreen, reliable Sturdy for intensive use over long periods
Camera for online screening of tests (mottling, Heliotest, print penetration) Images/results assessed immediately
