‘‘Decoration problems are the costliest defect faced by container manufacturers. Approximately 70% of the cans put into HFI are there for decoration-related defects. Every year, manufacturers scrap millions of these cans, generating substantial annual losses. There is a true need for 100% surface coverage at sampled or full production rates. It is especially crucial at a time when there is an industry trend towards highly complex, multi-colored decoration patterns. Our technology is designed to meet this ever-growing need and allow manufacturers to keep pushing the envelope for their customers,’‘ says Bud Patel, vice president of sales at Applied Vision.
‘‘The reduction or elimination of decoration defects is always our main objective. This new technology gives container manufacturers a more precise and efficient method to quickly identify defects as they occur and to notify the operator when defects are present. We are partnering with Applied Vision because they not only have the most advanced vision technology on the market, they also share our commitment to customer support. We're confident that our combined efforts will result in the very best solution for our customers,’‘ notes Gus Reall, president of Stolle Container Machinery Division.
