PEWAUKEE, WI—PPC Technologies & Solutions LLC (PPCTS) a distributor of converting machinery for the paperboard and corrugated industries, and Focusight Technology Co Ltd, a market leading company in machine vision and automation, signed an agreement for the distribution, sales and service of the Focusight line of SHARK and GECKO offline automatic inspection systems for the USA and Canada markets.
The Focusight family of SHARK and GECKO offline inspection systems are specifically designed to handle the difficult task of inspecting tobacco, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, liquor, software, food and other types of printed packaging for various process defects with options that also include backside copy. The Focusight SHARK and GECKO lines of inspection solutions are meant to be a complementary addition to the current PPCTS offering of folder/gluers, folder/gluer packing solutions and sheeters for the paperboard industries. PPCTS will provide product distribution, sales, technical support, service and parts in the USA and Canada, including support to existing machinery currently installed in the market.
Richard McDonald, president of PPCTS, says, “The Focusight line of inspection systems are ruggedly built with state-of-the-art technologies, versatile, easy to set up, highly productive and offer great value to folding carton box converters. With having over 15+ years of personal experience in the field of defect inspection, there is no doubt in my mind that Focusight offerings are very well conceived and I look forward to many additional successful machinery installations in the USA and Canada.”
