iPQ-Center: The Strong All-Rounder for Your Quality Assurance

In the printing industry, the requirements for product quality are high and, in a contested market, increasingly rising. The guarantee of flawless print quality is a deciding factor for manufacturers in order to remain competitive. In order to meet demands, manufacturers were previously dependent on the use of various autonomous quality assurance systems.


BST Group knows the exact demands of the industry – and has thought ahead, for precise printer results and an efficient printing process. With the Increasing Productivity and Quality Center ( iPQ-Center, for short), BST offers a modular product line for the central control of numerous quality assurance functions. BST integrates web monitoring, 100% inspection, spectral measurement, and further functions into a single system. You choose the quality monitoring modules individually, putting them together according to your project’s requirements.


Integrated Functions, Intuitive Operation

Uniform Operating Concept
Makes the switch between various operations unnecessary, since all iPQ-Center modules and functions are integrated into a uniform surface.

Ease of Operation
Optimally supports the machine operators during long print jobs – and particularly during short ones – thanks to quick set-up times.


Process Sequences: Perfect Flow
The iPQ-Workflow software perfectly links various iPQ-Center modules with each other.

Modular Construction According to Your Needs
The features of the iPQ-Center are always based on your needs. Cameras, image analysis functions, defect detection, additional illumination, spectral measurement, and further components can be integrated as required.
