Northwest flexible packaging printer gives the ‘thumbs up’ to Visi-tech web inspection system

KDS Visi-tech Flexo Printing Inspection System

Flexible food packaging printer and converter Sabre Triad, recently purchased their second Visi-tech video web inspection system. Their first system, purchased in 2003, was installed on a 6-colour Arsoma flexo press running both water and solvent-based inks.

Four years later the Preston based company needed to replace a failing 10-year-old inspection system on their 4-colour Timsons flexo press. Faced with options from a number of web inspection system suppliers, Sabre Triad decided to look no further than Advanced Supplies.

"Following our first purchase of the Visitech Compact Plus system for one of our narrow web printers, the company had no hesitation in turning to Advanced Supplies when looking for a system for our Timson printer," commented Sabre Triad's Engineering Manager, David Smith

"One of the main advantages of the Compact Plus system is that the camera and control module are housed together in one unit making for a very neat and simple installation particularly on a narrow web press where space is limited. The system is also very quick and simple to set up and has very user-friendly and intuitive on-screen menus. In addition to that, our first Compact Plus system has given us no problems with reliability in the 4 years that we've had it. David McNamara of Advanced Supplies has always been very helpful in enabling us to select the right inspection system for our requirements".

The Visitech X-Series Compact Plus System is one of a number of inspection systems available from Advanced Supplies Ltd.
