Tegatron, Inc. became a pioneer in the gravure industry by
introducing the “Tegatron” rollscope and analog line generator in the early
1980’s. This system was the first “plug and play” video measuring rollscope system
to feature a motorized focusing mechanism and adjustable light and depth. Still
used today, it can be upgraded to a PC based system incorporating the latest
Micro-Check® X-Y-Z™ software.
In 1996, Shima American Corporation received the exclusive
license for the Micro-Check® PC based video measuring rollscopes and
software. Using the DOS based software, Shima updated Micro-Check®
for use with Windows 98. The latest Micro-Check® X-Y-Z™
software continues to be the only portable PC based software that automatically
targets and measures multiple sizes of gravure cells. It has now been upgraded
for use on a laptop computer.
Prograf and Tegatron, Inc. recently announced
their agreement to form a strategic alliance for the advancement of both
companies’ products in the rotogravure and flexographic printing industries.
Tegatron will continue to manufacture, upgrade, and repair existing and new
Tegatron and Micro-Check® systems.
Prograf will market and sell the combined
systems. Prograf will also continue to develop and support its leading edge
Micro-Check® X-Y-Z™ software in the printing and other
