CHICAGO , September 9, 2022 (press release) –


Next-generation technologies reduce need for operator training and minimize impact of press staff turnover

Baldwin Technology Co., a leading global manufacturer and supplier of innovative process-automation equipment, parts, service and consumables, will introduce its latest print inspection solutions at Labelexpo Americas 2022, held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago from September 13-15. Visitors can explore Baldwin’s full portfolio of products for labels and packaging in booth #729, which include color and inspection solutions, UV and LED-UV curing technology and corona treatment systems.

“We understand that while it’s certainly a strong market out there, our customers are still facing challenges like supply chain uncertainty, inflation and labor constraints, to name a few,” said Craig Black, Baldwin’s Vice President of Sales. “Our goal is to help attendees learn how we can help to alleviate some of these stressors while ultimately increasing their bottom-line profitability through higher productivity, improved quality, and reduced downtime.


Meeting ongoing customer demand, Baldwin is launching the Guardian PQV 100% Print Inspection version 4.0. at Labelexpo. Designed and manufactured to help printers achieve print quality perfection and reduce material waste, these state-of-the-art camera systems can provide single or dual sided 100% print quality inspection for any given application. These applications can range from high-volume label production with variable data to inspecting the most challenging security print applications with features such as UV fluorescent, fiber inspection, IR covert, optically variable devices and inks, and magnetic inks.  The Guardian PQV solution is designed for ease of use, ultimately reducing the need for operator training and minimizing the problem of press staff turnover.

“Baldwin has helped secure our future by helping us achieve the optimum balance between internal business efficiency and meeting brand owner expectations,” said Ted Biggs, Vice President of Manufacturing at AWT Labels and Packaging in Minneapolis, MN.

Visitors to Baldwin’s booth can also find products from its Vision Systems segment, comprising the print industry’s most advanced color management and inspection technology solutions. Baldwin Vision Systems print inspection and defect tracking workflows make it possible to eliminate all defects from outgoing products, providing perfect quality to brand owners. With offerings including narrow-, mid-, and wide-web, label, and offline proofing and inspection, Vision Systems products are powerful yet simple to use, and deliver a day-to-day boost to production efficiency.

“Our goal at Labelexpo is to connect with attendees and demonstrate how our broad product offerings can support their current and future needs,” said Black. “We invite all visitors to stop by, whether to learn about our products or to simply recharge and meet our team.”
