Colbert Packaging Installs New Inspection Software QA System
LearyVIEW Array™ QA system improves quality and speed to market with less waste
By: Colbert Packaging
"The new Leary QA system has a camera that scans the entire carton against the approved customer-supplied proof for visual quality defects," says Nick Stober, Colbert's Elkhart production manager. The LearyVIEW has Eye C lnspection software that allows for 100% inline inspection for quality defects at up to .4 millimeters (1/64 in.) and speeds of 400 meters/minute (1300 feet/minute)
Chris Leary, director of sales at W.H. Leary Company states, "For many of our customers, there is a real advantage in retro-fitting print inspection technology to existing folder-gluers. This saves valuable time from sorting potential defects, and ensures all cartons produced meet the requirements of the end customer." This means Colbert's pharmaceutical and consumer customers receive product faster with greater quality assurance.
Colbert has manufacturing locations in Lake Forest, IL; Kenosha, WI; and Elkhart, IN. The corporate office is in Lake Forest. To learn more about its pharmaceutical and consumer packaging options or to search for open positions, visit www.colbertpkg.com.
