Valco Melton – raising the bar in quality inspection solutions for the converting industry

Valco Melton introduces Lumitio as its new brand of quality inspection and process management solutions for the converting and coating industries. Lumitio is a Portuguese company that specialises in the development of industrial IoT solutions. These solutions enable users to gather and analyse production-related data seamlessly integrated into the company’s system architecture.

Leveraging Valco Melton’s expertise in hot melt coating processes, Lumitio by Valco Melton has developed the Inspekt range. This range equips converters with tools for achieving defect-free production processes and efficient resource management.

Unveiling the Inspekt Range

Designed for the requirements of the converting and coating industries, the Inspekt range comprises three solutions, each developed to address a specific quality or process optimisation need.

Weight Inspekt grammage control systems measure the adhesive coat weight independently from the substrate thickness. This in-line system controls product grammage in closed-loop with the gear pumps on the applicator without stopping the line, thus preventing product waste.

Coat Inspekt vision inspection systems combine real-time error detection with an artificial intelligence system that automatically classifies all errors detected into pre-set categories, providing an immediate and intuitive overview of production status. This visibility and the historical data stored in the system brings users a powerful tool for process analysis and indications on defect positioning for elimination in the following process step.

Prod Inspekt helps manufacturers uncover their hidden growth potential. This Manufacturing Execution System (MES) features nine modules that integrate all production-related data into a single platform. Acting as a comprehensive information hub, Prod Inspekt helps align all company areas and inconsistent operational strategies through accurate data, ensuring that every manufacturing process is optimized for success.

Leading the shift towards data-driven decision making

The Inspekt suite of products provides manufacturers in the converting business access to previously inaccessible data and sophisticated analytical tools. The added power enables users to extract precise production insights, empowering informed, data-driven decision-making in today’s intricate business landscape.
