AVT enters sheetfed printing market
Advanced Vision Technology (AVT) has announced its entrance into the sheetfed printing market. “The demand for high-end quality and 100 percent fault free products in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cigarettes, wine, cosmetics, and security printing makes this regulated sheet-fed market a perfect match for our advanced machine vision technology,” says Shlomo Amir, AVT president and CEO. “We have adapted our market leading web-fed print inspection technology to meet the requirements of the sheet-fed market. We intend to continue introducing a variety of solutions for the sheet-fed print market in the next 12 months.”
The first AVT sheet-fed print inspection installation at Cartor, a security printer in France and a member of the UK-headquartered Walsall Security Printing Group, was extremely successful, according to AVT. One of the major stamp converters in Europe, Cartor decided to replace human eye-based inspection with automatic inspection systems from AVT.
“We looked around for quite a while for a solution that will meet the high demands of our international clientele,” says Ian Brigham, Cartor vice president. “AVT’s solution seemed to be the most advanced. Since the installation two months ago, we have been very pleased with its performance. We look forward to working with AVT on additional customized solutions for our industry.”
