Bobst has launched oneInspection, an integrated and evolving set of quality control solutions to proactively meet the needs of brand owners and converters, making zero-fault packaging a reality in the labels, flexible packaging, folding carton and corrugated board industries. The new quality control will also provide significant value to packers, retailers and consumers as part of the packaging value chain.
oneInspection ensures an end-to-end data driven quality process specifically tailored for each industry, which can be deployed in both new and existing production lines. It is a core enabler of the Bobst vision to shape the future of the packaging world and a core component of Bobst Connect – an open architecture cloud-based platform delivering solutions for pre-press, production, process optimization, maintenance and market access.
“Brand Owners and converters are faced with increasingly tight margins and timelines, which places huge amounts of pressure on quality control,” said Alexandre Pauchard – Group R&D Head. “We have launched oneInspection to alleviate these pressures. Most companies no longer have the luxury of quality control personnel carefully checking their packing and filling processes. That is why our solutions are highly digital, automated, completely reliable, inline and offline. They offer peace of mind for converters and brand owners alike.”
The current solutions for each industry are as follows:
These solutions provide data-driven quality control processes, eliminating human errors. They offer digital reporting for quality tracking, and unique and robust image processing algorithms for perfect inspection. They also provide new capacities, such as:
The oneInspection systems will benefit from these new capacities and gradually integrate them to enrich their offers.
Ultimately, oneInspection will provide a range of end-to-end quality control solutions, which will close the loop from artwork design to the final product through Bobst Connect, resulting in reduced production recalls and waste.
“oneInspection moves quality control into the digital age,” said Alexandre Pauchard - Group R&D Head. “It perfectly reflects our vision to shape the future of the packaging world through four key pillars of connectivity, digitalization, automation and sustainability, in this instance by aiming at delivering a new range of equipment and solutions that leverage digital intelligence, software and cloud-based platforms.”
For converters, oneInspection means complete peace of mind, enabling them to deliver the highest possible quality products to brand owners, while simultaneously improving efficiency and profitability. It puts guaranteed quality control at their fingertips, making zero-fault packaging a reality.
