California based extruder uses SurfaceFlow to guarantee powder milk bag production

Plastic film extruder required multiple systems to inspect and track defects

A US plastic film client with multiple US locations  approached OneBoxVision with a challenge. The company was producing bags for powered milk. The goal was to inspect the film while being extruded on a blown film line and alert the operators in real time to carbon specks so that it can be corrected at source. The extruded plastic would then be shipped to a second site where the film would be used on an automated line producing bags. The client wanted us to check again and also allow the second plant to access the inspection data for the first process.

US Packaging giant upgrades vision systems that were obsolete

US Packaging giant uses PackFlow  to upgrade old presses

A major US packaging supplier approached the team at OneBoxVision with a challenge. The client had a stock of older presses equipped with vision systems that the suppliers would not support anymore. They were deemed obsolete. OneBoxVision surveyed the equipment and specified a state of the art upgrade using commercial off the shelf components that the user could source in the US. The target lines were equipped with a complete new set of vision systems at close to 50% of the cost of purchasing replacements from the incumbent suppliers. This allowed the client to spend more on training and  validation so as to ensure the equipment was used to it's potential.

New kit to build 100% print inspection systems for packaging

Can I build a  print inspection system?

The packaging industry continues to expand and automate.  When one looks at the high cost of turnkey camera solutions from industry providers such as BST, AVT and others, and the reduction in cost of components, building your own system  looks like an attractive opportunity. There is an opportunity for converters to lower CapEx costs and for other engineering companies enter a high margin vision niche.
