Award-winning inspection system allows monitoring of cold seal registration at full production speed
Leading flexible packaging supplier ColorAd has installed a Tecscan Cold Seal Inspection System on their Nordmeccanica laminator. Based in Winnipeg, Canada, ColorAd is the largest producer of pre-formed laminated bags in North America, serving the confectionary and snack food markets.
ColorAd’s production manager, Rahul Thackar, approached Tecscan for their unique expertise on cold seal inspection, as the company required accurate monitoring of cold seal on clear, white and metalized plastic substrates.
Winner of a FlexoTech Environmental Innovation Award, Tecscan’s Cold Seal Inspection System provides a unique solution to a niche area of the packaging industry. It uses specialised lighting and a high resolution camera to produce a transparent effect onscreen, showing both cold seal and print and allowing the operator to monitor the registration at full production speed.
“…the advantages of Tecscan’s Cold Seal Inspection System are already apparent: less waste, better use of the skills of the operators, improved consistency and repeatability”
Tecscan engineers consulted at length with Mr. Thackar and his associates to provide the optimal solution for ColorAd’s Triplex Combi Horizontal model, and flew out to install the system and provide training at the Winnipeg facility.
Mr. Thackar commented that the advantages of Tecscan’s Cold Seal Inspection System are already apparent: less waste, better use of the skills of the operators, improved consistency and repeatability.
