Jet Label, Largest Manufacturer in Western Canada, Chooses AVT Helios Inspection Solutions for Digital and Flexo Presses
Upcoming Installation Includes Two AVT Helios Automatic 100%
Print Inspection Solutions for the Label & Narrow Web Sector
Leading Label Manufacturer Plans to Expand AVT Inspection to Six Lines by Early 2017
Hod-Hasharon, Israel & Edmonton, AB, Canada – Jet Label & Packaging Ltd., Western Canada’s largest label manufacturer serving a variety of industries including food & beverage, agriculture and pharmaceuticals with sector-specific solutions, will install two systems from print inspection leader AVT at its manufacturing facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Scheduled for deployment in early fall, both systems are from AVT’s Helios set of solutions.
Designed and developed from years of AVT’s market experience and expertise, Helios is seamlessly integrated into any rewinder/finishing equipment to create a designated automatic inspection station for post print processes. The user-friendly solution deploys dedicated, advanced algorithms designed to detect any type of defect. Effective for nearly any substrate or application, Helios also features built-in archiving and reporting, including an innovative, PrintFlow module, as well as an efficient in-line monitoring tool that reports on total good material printed.
Jet Label will adjoin one Helios inspection system at the finishing station of a digital printing line, and another to a conventional flexo printing operation. Both Helios inspection systems will be linked to AVT’s PrintFlow Manager and PrintFlow Central quality and process control solutions. PrintFlow Manager ensures that data collected from all platforms is presented directly to the PCs of print house managers and key personnel, promoting increased internal production quality and efficiency, as well as enhanced communication between customers and suppliers.
PrintFlow Central enables automatic storage of inspection and job setup data from AVT inspection systems into a single server. The solution allows users to better handle backup of job parameters and inspection data by making this information continuously available for analysis and repeat jobs.

Jet Label’s manufacturing facility is a 24/7 operation that will benefit mightily from AVT’s advanced inspection and quality control systems.

Our Helios solutions set standards in each of these categories.”
