Weber Packaging Solutions has purchased six PrintVision/Helios II inspection systems from Advanced Vision Technology (AVT).
Weber’s label manufacturing equipment includes the flexographic and digital high-speed label presses.
Weber said it will place four of the Helios systems on presses, one on a rewinder and one on a finishing unit of a digital label press.
Weber Packaging Solutions manufacturing VP John Leary said that the company has several medical device, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers as customers and it is becoming almost a requirement to utilize this technology to guarantee the quality of the labels their products demand.
"During Label Expo 2010, we decided to take a closer look at the system and we were very impressed by the user interface as well as how easy it was to isolate several different areas on a label with various degrees of scrutiny," Leary added.
"We determined that we could benefit from not only upgrading our systems on our rewind inspection equipment, but could also add systems to our ten-color flexo presses to help reduce scrap by alerting the operator sooner to correct a defect."
