Hub Labels – Expanding inspection and quality control

Hub Labels of Hagerstown, MD, expanded its use of Helios 100% inspection and quality assurance systems

USA • Hub Labels, one of the most prestigious and diversified manufacturers of pressure-sensitive labels and linerless labels in the United States, is expanding its use of inspection and quality control solutions from AVT. The expansion chiefly involves AVT’s Helios, a solution for 100% inspection and quality assurance in label and narrow web printing.

After originally installing Helios on a pair of its labeling lines two years ago, Hub Labels is now adding the solution to three existing lines as well as two newly purchased ones. In addition, they have complemented their Helios installation with AVT’s optional WorkFlow Link solution, which provides connection between presses and rewinders toward the efficient removal of defective material. WorkFlow Link provides remote access to PrintFlow data from all installed AVT 100% inspection systems, and can be deployed in conjunction with the optional PrintFlow Manager, an innovative quality reporting management tool.

Additional supplemental AVT quality control solutions utilized at Hub Labels include a roll map display that virtually tags out-of-spec labels, as well as JobRef, which enables verification at the setup stage by automatically comparing a current job to the original, customer-approved digital PDF file.
