OPM Group partners with AVT for 100% production line quality control

OPM employee operating AVT Helios print inspection systemOPM Group has installed its second AVT Helios print inspection system with a third and fourth planned for later this year. The investment is part of the operation’s vision to become one of Europe’s top-performing label and flexible packaging printers.

The AVT Helios print inspection system is designed exclusively for labels and narrow web printing. It offers 100% quality assurance across the entire print production workflow – from setup through printing to finishing – inspecting any application and any substrate or print type.

Susan Ellison, owner of OPM Group states: “Print is an increasingly competitive industry, we are constantly looking for new technologies and innovations. Our vision is to maintain our position as one of Europe’s top-performing printers of quality and innovative labels and flexible packaging.

Our strategy is not designed around what or clients expect today. We recognise that the markets will expect something different in the future. And that future is starting to arrive now. The consumer driven process of printed labels and packaging is already becoming more impatient, more demanding and more discerning. To compete with this ever changing market OPM continually investigate and assess the use of new technologies, processes, and materials that will be needed to bring new products to our clients. The whole team recognise the necessity for continuous R&D to meet this strategy by achieving the perfect combination of our core areas of expertise: print, lean manufacture and service”.

Privately-owned, independent, OPM (Labels & Packaging) Group Ltd was established over 40 years ago. It currently serves more than 600 clients in both domestic and export markets spanning numerous sectors, including pharmaceutical, health and beauty, home care automotive, beverage and food.
