Practical applications for White and UV strobes in the Printing and Converting Industries.

As Flexographic speeds increase and the use of hybrid substrates in packaging are added, on-press strobe inspections are becoming mandatory to meet the demand. Using a pure white strobe flash, allows the QC inspector to virtually stop motion on a position on press to determine its color quality, ink density, tint screens, and registration.

How to use a Stroboscope and Laser Tachometer for speed measurement

Using the Nova-Pro® integrated laser tachometer to synchronize strobe flash rate for instant stop motion. Benefits of using an optical tachometer with a strobe.

Nova-Pro® has Patented laser sychronization technology

Demonstration of advanced features on Nova-Pro® LED stroboscopes. Phase Delay, Time Delay, and Virtual RPM. See how the Nova-Pro's Patented Technology greatly simplifies speed and stop motion inspection in all of your moving processes and machinery.

Using the Monarch Strobe REPEAT and JOG/DELAY Feature for Printing and Converting

Understanding the Repeat and Jog/Delay features for Narrow Web and Label Flexographic Printing. Viewing individual repeat patterns with a strobe when using different repeat quantities on the same sheet. How to view the first, second, and consecutive label impressions in a row using the Jog/Delay feature.

Nova-Pro® LED Stroboscope/Laser Tachometer is two tools in one

The Nova-Pro® has an integral laser sensor included with the 300, and 500 models (optional on the 100). This simple proprietary module can be installed in seconds or used in the remote dock for speed measurement or flash synchronization.

Stroboscopes and Vibration Analysis

Using a Nova-Pro® handheld stroboscope from Monarch Instrument, V-TEK Associates demonstrates resonant frequencies inherent in machine vibration analysis. By matching the rotation frequency of the MVAT6-01 the strobe flashing virtually slows or stops motion of the rotor. This also captures the cantilever beam which is moving in resonant harmonics with the machine vibration.

Nova-Pro® UV LED Stroboscopes used for inspection of invisible inks

Ultraviolet (UV) LED illuminating stroboscopes are used to inspect UV sensitive security markings made with 'invisible inks' in many Printing and Converting processes such as Pharmaceutical, Flexible Packaging, Currency, Security Documents and also for Non-destructive Testing (NDT) when combined with fluorescing penetrants.

Infrared Stroboscopic Technology and Life Sciences

The Nova-Pro® Infrared Stroboscope is used with a FASTEC high-speed camera to capture ultra slow motion, high definition videos of insect and wildlife behavior in their real world habitats. The infrared LED's brightly illuminate the area being filmed without the disturbing effects of standard visible light.
