Oak Creek, Wis. – American International Machinery, Inc. (AIM), the exclusive supplier for the Signature brand of converting equipment for the paperboard and corrugated industries, is pleased to announce the addition of the SIG-CHECK Print Inspection System to the Signature line of folder gluer products.
AIM has partnered with EyeC America to develop a superior inspection system with unbeatable inspection speed and accuracy. The SIG-CHECK can automatically detect every print defect on the carton, including on the flaps, without slowing down production by comparing each to the approved PDF proof. Defective cartons are separated using the folder gluer’s existing ejection device and a full inspection report is provided. As a result, quality requirements are met and customer rejects are avoided ensuring every carton complies with even the highest standards.
The SIG-CHECK can be paired with a carton converter’s existing folder gluer, or as an in-line module that is installed directly on a Signature Folder Gluer. The flexible design can be “rolled up” to most folder gluers and is positioned directly in front of the machine. Available options include color monitoring and 1D or 2D code reading.
“We are very pleased to partner with EyeC America, a highly respected supplier of quality inspection equipment that demonstrates a philosophy of total customer satisfaction that mirrors our own,” states Kevin Koplin, managing director for AIM. “The ability to easily add an elevated level of quality control to existing equipment will help businesses gain new customers who require stricter quality standards.”
The system is available globally. Sales are provided by Signature Folder Gluer distributors such as AIM for North America and Mexico. Service will be performed by either AIM or EyeC depending on the service required. AIM/Signature and EyeC are supported worldwide.
