The Amsterdam series of testers is a range of flexible, multi-purpose testers with 1, 2 up to a maximun of 6 printing shalfs.
Through the use of the latest technological features in motor control, it is possible to reach very short times between successive prints, dampening and print, print and counter print or set-off prints. This opens the door to a large range of new test methods. 


The IGT Printabilty tester model AMSTERDAM is a fully automated tester with constant and accellerating speed modes.With that it is capable to perform all tests of a Global Standard Tester P plus the tests of a Global Standard Tester 3. Additionally it is prepared to do on-line analysis of mottling with a camera based analysis system.
