Troika Systems has announced that the AniCAM, a handheld device that uses a camera to check the volume and cell condition of engraved anilox inking rolls fitted to flexo and offset presses, has been re-engineered in mono. Troika says the new black and white version narrows considerably any margin for error and has already picked up sales with many prominent label and wide web printers in Europe and with anilox manufacturers in Europe and North and South America.
