AVT Inspection System Excels at Stratus Group
HOD-HASHARON, ISRAEL—Advanced Vision Technology Ltd., (AVT), a supplier of automatic inspection and quality assurance solutions for the printing industry, is receiving positive feedback on its new PrintVision/Orion 100-percent automatic inspection solution for folding carton, single-pack applications.
PrintVision/Orion was first introduced at drupa in 2008. Shortly thereafter, the Stratus Group in West Chester, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati, became the first beta site for the Orion platform. After more than six months of in-depth testing, the Stratus Group gave their final acceptance to the Orion system.
Currently, Stratus Group is using the PrintVision/Orion solution to automatically inspect individual diecut package blanks for one of their pharmaceutical clients. The system is installed after diecutting, inspecting each package prior to gluing. Orion operates around the clock on a 24/5 basis and literally inspects millions of packages.
Curt Curran, vice president of Stratus Group, stated, “We are receiving excellent results from AVT’s PrintVision/Orion system. We inspect for color, registration, type and diecutting. Our client’s packaging often has small print and we must be confident that the type is in place and readable. The speed of Orion is truly impressive, but what really counts is that this 100-percent automatic system totally eliminates the human error factor. Any pieces that are not consistent with our strict quality criteria are simply ejected. Our clients are very pleased with our quality control initiatives. Since installing the Orion system, our delivery of millions of packages shows zero defects.”
Stratus Group Inc. is a printer of paperboard packaging and pressure sensitive labels, along with other specialty converting and decorating solutions. For more than 35 years, Status Group has served the packaging requirements of consumer brands from the health and beauty, beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care and automotive industries.
Gal Shamri, AVT Corporate VP Marketing, commented: “Through our continuous dialog and partnership with folding carton printers such as Stratus Group, we have developed and successfully implemented the Orion solution. We are very pleased that Stratus Group chose us as its partner for quality control solutions and that it can already benefit from the Orion solution, demonstrating its proven inspection technology and fast payback.”
