A cutting-edge technology bringing carton handling and printing to a
whole new level
QUEBEC CITY, May 7, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Optel Vision today announced the
launch of its revolutionary ultra-compact, high-speed carton handling
solution with advanced inspection and fully controlled ejection.
As demonstrated for the first time at Interpack 2014, the Flying
CartonTracker™ is a stand-alone unit allowing printing and inspection
on cartons with the ability to reject any single carton on the fly.
Gripping the carton from the top, this unit is INSTALLED OVER an
existing line without cutting or modifying the line layout. The system
can handle a wide range of carton sizes with speeds of up to 400
cartons per minute. The unit can be either mobile or fixed into
position and can be integrated just after a cartoner or at the end of
the production line. This system can be fed automatically or manually
The benefit of this unit is its ability to minimize downtime by quickly
integrating into any installation so less production time is lost.
Changeovers are now very fast with only two simple adjustments. The
ability to run a large range of carton sizes increases the line agility
between various products.
"We wanted to offer a flexible and cost-effective solution that will
decrease downtimes by quickly implementing directly on any packaging
line without the need of a table or conveyor to hold the cartons", says
Louis Roy, President of Optel Vision.
While the printing and inspection on the cartons is done in a continuous
motion without stopping the item, a camera ensures that the printed
information is of good quality otherwise it will be retained and
rejected at the top of the machine. Other inspections are also possible
such as dimensional measurement of the item, verification of
pre-printed information or bar code grading.
Optel Vision is committed to innovate and answer the challenging demands
of its customers. We are proud to bring new flexible solutions to the
packaging industry for pharmaceutical companies.
