AVT forms strategic alliance with Focusight

AVT has partnered with the Chinese company Focusight to develop a new cost-effective inspection system for wide web applications in China. The new FA-Falcon solution combines AVT’s proven inspection software with Focusight’s precision hardware components and engineering.

FA Falcon can be installed either on printing presses or rewinders. It offers 100% inspection for a variety of web-based packaging applications, supporting a broad range of materials including various flexible packaging substrates, transparent films, paper, carton, foil and holographic foils. It uses high-speed, high-resolution colour cameras that can support web widths from 650mm to 1,450mm. There are optional modules to improve process control, such as WorkFlow Link, which transfers quality data from the press to the rewinder for efficient removal of defective material.

Focusight will be responsible for all sales and servicing for this new inspection solution, as well as the installation, training and support, albeit with AVT’s assistance.

Jaron Lotan, CEO of AVT, commented: “Focusight’s Chinese market knowledge and local capabilities and reach, combined with its cost effectiveness, makes it the perfect partner for AVT, and the new solution has the potential for widespread adoption in the fast-growing Chinese marketplace.”
