Flexible Packaging Challenge:
A value proposition adapted to the needs of our key partners. A key challenge in the Flexible Packaging industry is to maintain accurate adhesive coat thickness on high-speed lines, without excess waste. To help our customers address this challenge, Quadra’s Technical Account and Product Managers sourced a technological partner to develop the best solution. This partner developed a very efficient software measuring device that uses Near-Infrared and Visual Light Reflectance (NIR) to read the absolute thickness of various coatings on high-speed lines. Through several demos and trials on-site using our customer’s adhesive laminators, this technology proved to efficiently increase process productivity and quality. This solution has enabled Quadra’s flexible packaging customers to deliver absolutely accurate coating application on their lines, resulting in significant cost savings and waste reduction.
