AVT, a leader in print inspection, print process control, and quality assurance, is joining forces with proofing solutions provider Global Vision to offer advanced offline inspection solutions to the worldwide printing market.
Under the agreement, Global Vision will provide AVT with a new software engine for its offline inspection solutions, which are customized to suit the specific needs of the printing industry and its varying production workflow setups and printing applications. The partnership also enables AVT to serve as Global Vision’s print market sales arm, and paves the way for these two key players to jointly develop unique inspection solutions for specific sectors, including the labeling and packaging marketplaces.
The companies also will co-develop print quality assurance solutions that connect inline and offline inspection systems while providing timely, comprehensive reporting.
Among AVT’s latest offline solutions is SolidProof, which provides 100 percent assurance for wide web, narrow web and sheet-fed applications, ensuring that no critical errors have been overlooked during print production. SolidProof automatically eliminates conversion errors and undetected defects during the pre-press stage, drastically reducing the need for manual inspection and bringing waste levels to near-zero.
Other features include intelligent cropping and automatic alignment utilities, comprehensive reporting and multi-lingual inspection capabilities, as well as options for barcode and Braille verification and a 21 CFR Part 11 compliance module for the pharmaceutical sector.
The partnership is seen as a win-win: it benefits both companies and their respective customers by allowing AVT and Global Vision to expand their customer bases and realize the benefit of their combined strengths.
“Our partners at Global Vision offer unsurpassed offline verification and inspection solutions for the markets they serve,” says Jaron Lotan, CEO, AVT. “As a result of our newfound synergy, AVT can now provide its customers all-inclusive tools regardless of printing technology and application.”
“In AVT, Global Vision now has an influential, reputable arm in the print market, while we help bolster AVT’s presence in other capacities,” says Reuben Malz, CEO of Global Vision. “The collaboration is an ideal match that will, most importantly, improve the overall print inspection solutions space through increased access and innovation.”
