South Korea's Samkwang Nonsan has chosen Xpar Vision’s InfraRed Camera and Gob Weight Control System.

Mr. Kon-hee Han, Managing Director of Samkwang Nonsan, said: “We continuously want to improve our efficiency and quality level and we see this investment as a necessity to maintain our position as leading supplier to the South Korean market.”

Xpar Vision CEO Paul Schreuders, added: “We are very proud to welcome Samkwang Nonsan as a new customer in the Korean market. In addition, we have two of our technologies exposed to the South Korean market. Knowing that the market is transparent, this is a good starting point for new investments to come.”

In the meantime, Samkwang Nonsan staff have been trained at Xpar Vision’s base in Groningen, the Netherlands. Furthermore, the systems have been installed on the production line and an Xpar Vision consultant/trainer has given several on-the-job training sessions at the plant.

Last June, Mr. Young-Chan Ji and Mr. Chanrok Oh visited the Netherlands for a four-day training session. During this session they were introduced to Xpar Vision’s company, staff and technologies.

As for most new customers, hot end technology is totally different. Besides instructions about functionalities and technicalities (maintenance & installation) the training includes practical experience and key success factors of the new technologies.

Mr. Young-Chan Ji, Production Manager at Samkwang Nonsan said: “The training was our first exposure to hot end technologies and thanks to its focus waas very useful.

"We have encountered many Xpar Vision staff members, from the Management, Research & Development department, Field Service Engineering and Consultancy. It was a great start to our cooperation with Xpar Vision.”
