Hyden Packaging has collaborated with Futec Japan to provide high definition inspection cameras on its slitter rewinders.
Launched at Labelexpo India 2018, the FH400B slitter rewinder is a bi-directional machine that features 100 percent inspection.
Pramod Jayakar, managing director at Hyden Packaging, said: ‘The replaced label goes under the camera and gets re-checked. The machine can inspect variable data as well. A defective label on the splicing table is replaced with a correct label which then gets re-checked by the machine, without disturbing the set-up. The machine also allows online slitting while inspecting the printed roll.’
FH400B slits at a speed of 300m/min and inspects at 150m/min.
Of the Indian market, Jayakar said: ‘We see demand of bi-directional machines growing in the near future. People are becoming more conscious about label quality. The demand for quality inspection system is going to grow, especially in the pharmaceutical industry. Brand owners, at large, demand defect free labels to ensure quality product goes to the market.’
