Truf International, machine manufacturer and software developer based in Malaysia, has installed first Skop 100 percent inspection machine at Adampak in Chon Buri, Thailand.

Adampak Group of companies manufactures high-end electronic labels with barcodes and variable numbers at multiple factories in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, and China amongst others.

K Samart Photchaitham, former general manager, Adampak International said: ‘We were looking for a small inspection system that could cater to small label roll with variable data and we found this equipment matched our requirements perfectly. A traditional vision inspection requires more than 10m of roll length but Skop inspection machine detects very small defects and on much smaller roll lengths.’

Truf launched its first vision inspection system in May 2018. The company launched a Skop2factory campaign in Bangkok in April 2019 where the company buckled the machine behind a pickup truck and went from factory to factory to demonstrate its capabilities.

Jason Lim, sales manager, Truf International, said: ‘In the first meet up, Adampak International was impressed with the machine and agreed to take discussions forward. Through various meetings, we understood Adampak’s requirements and developed several customer software upgrades to meet their needs. We successfully signed the purchase order for two units in September 2019 and completed the installation in December.’ Skop further provided Adampak with four days of training on the machine.

‘We are now in touch with the company’s teams in Malaysia and Singapore for the same inspection machine,’ concluded Lim.
