AVT’s inspection system installed at Clifton Packaging Group

UK Clifton Packaging Group, provider of packaging solutions predominantly serving the Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector of the food industry, has installed a next-generation 100% solution for inline process control and quality assurance on its latest equipment upgrade: an EVO XG8 HD Printing Press from Flexotecnica.  The inspection solution, PrintVision/Argus, has been supplied by Israel based company Advanced Vision Technology (AVT).

AVT’s PrintVision/Argus employs a combination of line scan vision technologies for inline process control and quality assurance.  When mounted on presses, PrintVision/Argus provides print defect detection by finding, notifying and recording a variety of fault types, including misprints, colour variations, plate problems, hazing, mis-registration, spots and splashes. The system then tags and tracks found defects for downstream removal.

The decision to install AVT’s PrintVision/Argus is based, in part, on the two companies’ longstanding relationship: Clifton Packaging utilizes AVT’s PrintVision/Jupiter automatic defect detection solution on each of its printing lines.  Clifton Packaging has been pleased with the AVT solutions’ ease of operation, premium inspection capabilities and reduced instances of time-wasting false alarms, as well as the expertise and prompt availability of AVT support staff.
