First installation of the PrintChecker 600 in the U.S.
The PrintChecker 600 was developed together with the Evansville, Indiana (USA) division of Clondalkin Pharma & Healthcare (formerly Keller Crescent - Evansville) which produces folding cartons for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. The purpose of the system is to check the surface of folding cartons for faults and to sort the defect packing out. Clondalkin Pharma & Healthcare is using the machine to meet the high standards (100% quality control) necessary to export folding cartons in this sector to Japan. The PrintChecker 600 is successfully in operation since March 2011.
The Director of Operations Chris Feagans describes the coorporation with Kohmann as following:
"Our project with Kohmann began with defining very detailed specifications for the capabilities and performance criteria of the system. Kohmann then began with the design of the system. During this phase of the project Kohmann kept us informed completely. They were very receptive and responsive to our input and feedback about the design of the system. Once the design was finalized they made and assembled the machine. The machine was delivered to us safely and within the quoted budget for the project. The system passed our rigorous acceptance testing.
I am are very impressed with the quality of Kohmann's work. The character of the system's mechanical components are very sturdy with excellent fit and finish. The electrical wiring and placement of the electronics are beautifully done in a very neat manner. The controls and operator interfaces are very effective and well conceived. With respect to support after we received the system, every question or need we have expressed to Kohmann has been promptly satisfied.
This project was a great first experience for me working with the Kohmann company and I look forward to another project with Kohmann."
