Product Case Study

Single pass machine gives end user technical edge in the market

Background


A Vietnamese company were looking for a modular machine to help them produce scratch off recharge cards for high volume production.

Solution

Edale were able to guarantee the high levels of security that the customer were looking to achieve whilst combining multiple processes to rationalise the production process eliminating the W-I-P.

Benefits

The customer are now producing in excess of 200,000 CR80 sized cards per hour. The video verification cameras monitoring every card for print legibility and quality of the scratch off panel, has meant that employee downtime has significantly reduced and quantities of product risen.


“Edale’s ability to combine multiple processes into a single pass, gives the end user an advanced commercial and technical edge in this market”
