Jet Label & Packaging Ltd., described as Western Canada’s largest label manufacturer is installing two systems from print inspection manufacturer AVT at its manufacturing facility in Edmonton, Alberta. Scheduled for deployment this fall, both systems are from AVT’s Helios set of solutions.
Jet Label, with additional locations in Calgary, Vancouver, Prince George, Kelowna, Saskatoon and Winnipeg, focuses on industries like food & beverage, agriculture and pharmaceuticals. The label manufacturer plans to expand its AVT inspection to six lines by early 2017.
“Jet Label’s commitment to this leading-edge technology will have huge benefits realized by our staff, suppliers and most of all our loyal customers,” said Darrell Friesen, President & CEO of Jet Label.
AVT’s Helios technology can be integrated into any rewinder/finishing equipment to create a designated automatic inspection station for post-print processes. The system uses dedicated algorithms designed to detect any type of defect based on substrate and application. Helios also features built-in archiving and reporting, including its PrintFlow module, as well as an inline monitoring tool that reports on total good material printed.
Jet Label will adjoin one Helios inspection system at the finishing station of a digital printing line, and another to a conventional flexo printing operation. Both Helios inspection systems will be linked to AVT’s PrintFlow Manager and PrintFlow Central quality and process control systems.
More specifically, PrintFlow Manager ensures that data collected from all platforms is presented directly to the PCs of print house managers and key personnel. PrintFlow Central enables automatic storage of inspection and job setup data from AVT inspection systems into a single server.

It produces a range of durable, reliably water- and weatherproof labels that stand up to the types of harsh conditions in which many of its customers operate.
