International paper and packaging group Mondi has signed an agreement to install QuadTech’s inspection technology on the group’s sheet-fed corrugated presses that have in-line die-cutting capability.
According to QuadTech, the system will inspect the entire substrate width throughout the production run.
It detects common defects such as hickies, hazing, streaks, misregistrations and colour variations. It also allows an operation speed of up to 7,000 sheets per hour.
QuadTech president Karl Fritchen said that the inspection system has several installations in the corrugated sheet-fed market, and allows converters to reduce waste levels.
The first pilot installation is planned in December 2011 in Mondi’s Bad Rappenau plant.
