Real-time hot-melt inspection assures proper application
Robust inspection uses thermal and visual imaging.

Valco Melton’s award-winning PackChek System uses thermal and visual imaging to provide quality assurance of proper hot-melt application in real time.

Valco Melton’s ClearVision PackChek System provides hot-melt inspection for end-of-line packaging that goes beyond visual inspection of each glue bead. PackChek also uses thermal imaging by evaluating the heat signature of every package to ensure hot melt glue has been applied to the correct locations.

To date, PackChek is the only vision inspection system of its kind utilizing thermal and visual imaging. Benefits include real-time feedback on faulty product and the ability to log defect and analyze long term performance.

The ClearVision PackChek System has been named the Gold winner in the 11th Annual International Business Awards in the “Best New Product or Service of the Year - Industrial Products & Services” category.  The International Business Awards is a premier, global business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2014 IBAs comprised entries from more than 60 nations and territories. The awards will be presented to winners at banquet at the Westin Paris – Vendôme Hotel in Paris, France on October 10.
