Hand-held, portable flexo analyzer for Plates, Prints and Film

BETAFLEX Control Universal Flexo Analyzer 

Betaflex Control Universal is a portable, hand held, flexo plate and image analyzer for the analysis of film, masks, elastomer (flexo) plates, and printed images.

Building on the success of the Betaflex series while adding new features, Betaflex Control Universal is a hand held device used in conjunction with the supplied transmission lightbox and the integral white LED reflection illumination. It connects directly to the PC via USB 2.0 port and accommodates the largest samples with no limits on position or location. An ISO-compliant calibration system assures accurate and reliable measurements. A user-friendly graphical interface for Windows XP, Windows 7, or Vista operating systems makes it easy to use and understand.



  • A 1.3 megapixel color camera generates clear, sharp images of the plate or print with a field of view of 88 x 75 mils. The large image area and high resolution simplify measurements of both extremely coarse and extremely fine halftone for corrugated, label, and wide web printers.
  • Conventional (AM) and Stochastic (FM) and High Definition (HD) screening is measured over the entire tonal range for complete control of the reprographic process.
  • Line width and other image analysis tools provide critical information necessary for maintaining the highest quality.

Images and data can be saved in a variety of formats, a great tool for quality control and verification. System performance and accuracy is maintained by the high-precision ISO-compliant glass calibration target and automatic software.
