Open House for ATE ViewAxis & Detect Axis systems

ATE builds full web viewing and defect detection systems

ATE has leveraged its extensive domain knowledge in the print and packaging industry in its manufacture of a range of vision products for the print and packaging industry. Its in-house hardware and software teams have developed ViewAXIS Mega, an entry-level web video viewing system; ViewAXIS Tera – a full print repeat web video system claimed to be the first of its kind; and DetectAXIS, a100% print defect detection system. All of these have been developed by ATE’s Print and Packaging Equipment Business Unit in Pune.

To showcase and demonstrate the capabilities of the ViewAXIS Tera and DetectAXIS systems, ATE conducted an Open House from 8 to 10 November 2017, at its Pune factory. Several converters and OEMs from across the country attended the event to see the products in operation. Participants included Devendran Plastics, Huhtamaki PPL, and Expert Industries. “To keep up with the ever-increasing market demand and take on global competition, printers and converters have to increase their production speeds and at the same time maintain high quality standards. Hence, they need a hi-tech and reliable solution to detect and resolve printing and other defects even at high print speeds to maintain the quality standards and minimize wastage. The conventional approach of simple web video is now taken for granted,” says Anand Mehta, vice president of ATE’s Print and Packaging Equipment Business Unit.

ViewAXIS Tera captures sharp, high resolution, near-print quality stationary images of the entire width of a print web at full production speeds, and displays it on a 55-inch 4K resolution monitor. By looking at these images, operators can easily spot errors and defects and take corrective action to reduce print material wastage.

DetectAXIS is a 100% print inspection system, which quickly spots printing defects that are practically invisible to the unassisted human eye – in real time – by comparing the captured images with a golden template. When a defect is spotted, DetectAXIS generates alarms and warnings for the operator to take necessary corrective action. ViewAXIS Tera can be upgraded to DetectAXIS, a 100% print inspection system for consistent, defect free, and high quality print quality. Both systems, ViewAXIS Tera and DetectAXIS make use of high-resolution line scan cameras that enable superior print web monitoring.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
