The new high resolution system is portable and easy to use.  Operating in TRANSMISSION mode at 14,000 PPI, it quickly and accurately measures all types of transparent flexo plates, digital ablation masks, and halftone films. The new Mask Stain Density function eliminates the need to carry an old fashioned film densitometer to verify laser energy, focus, and beam adjustments.

In PRINT mode, "Color Separation Analysis" imaging of color prints on film and paper provides measurements of Dot Area, Screen Ruling, Edge Factor and more.  Excellent for work where there is no room for printed targets like cosmetic and pharmaceutical work.  Data and images are easily captured and printed with the integral report generator and statistical analyzer. Offset plates can also be measured. 

The Calibration Target and software system maintains a database of the instrument status to satisfy the most stringent ISO registration requirements.  All of this is combined with the high precision, ease of use, and Beta product support that has made Betaflex the standard for Flexo Quality Control.

The new automatic 4 point calibration system eliminates the need to make multiple manual measurements.

  • Measure flexo plates, films, and digital masks in conventional 2D mode (.5% at 300 lpi and better)

  • Dot Structure Analysis in 3D mode reveals dot height, slope, and more

  • Print mode measures true mechanical dot area on offset plates and prints

  • Automatic 4 point calibration system with ISO-compliant target 

  • Mask Stain density function for laser ablation setup

  • Image Overlay and Comparison function to visualize and measure dot changes

      Betaflex Pro Testimonials From End-Users

      The BetaFlex Pro helps my team produce better work through live images and measurement data. 

      Its easy to use/learn; after a few uses operators have it down.  As a manager this device has helped us 'cut through the bias' during plate & print troubleshooting and kept the focus on the problem/solution.  You cannot put a price on that; after a few print/plate troubleshooting sessions it paid for itself.
      I have only contacted the Betaflex support team once or twice and they had an answer for me in less than 24hrs.
      I would recommend the Beta Pro to anyone producing flexo or letterpress plates as well as film negatives.  It also works well as a print analyzer. 
      When it comes to plates seeing is believing and measurement is king; BetaFlex Pro does both. We are very satisfied with the product.

      As a QA tool it does help us “produce better work” by allowing our team to peer into our platemaking process to ensure that the final product is within the established ranges for each attribute that we measure.
      The customized settings for plate specific tolerances have been quite helpful. The foot pedal for the    controls also means more of a hands free operation that some operators find helpful.
      As plate technologies have evolved and process controls have become tighter, it has become very    important to have a dependable measurement tool that allows you to measure and understand what    is imaged on the mask and what is formed on the finished plate.           
      We have established a  good relationship with Beta. They have been willing to understand what we were trying to accomplish and have done a good job supporting our efforts via email, phone calls, and screen sharing support.
      If someone was looking for a tool to help them better understand their platemaking process and is willing to invest the time to setup the proper procedures, then we would certainly recommend the BetaFlex Pro.

      We have been using the BetaFlex Pro for approximately 3 years.
      We find it very helpful to assess the quality of our printed product and to refer to it to analyze and determine if adjustments are necessary at press side, or in pre-press.
      We also use it to review HD dots on our plates. There have been numerous occasions where the Betaflex PRO has saved us money at press side.
      I enjoy using the BetaFlex Pro and have found it to be a very valuable tool.

      I have discovered a new solution for reading white ink mottle on PRINTED FOIL!
      This stunned the printer in 15 minutes as they have been searching for a way to do this for a long time. Ironically while I was there they were conducting white ink trials on foil and using only using visual pass/fail methods.
      I did this on my computer with my BetaFlex Pro in front of them. I could not have done any of this without the BetaFlex Pro.
