Samkwang Nonsan chooses XPAR Vision hot end systems

After a thorough selection process Samkwang Nonsan (South Korea) has chosen XPAR Vision’s InfraRed Camera and Gob Weight Control System. Mr. Kon-hee Han, Managing Director of Samkwang Nonsan argues: “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.”

Mr. Paul Schreuders, CEO of XPAR Vision is very pleased with the new customer: “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 South Korean market. Knowing that the market is transparent, this is a good starting point for new investments to come.”

On-the-job training
In the meantime, Samkwang Nonsan staff has 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 trainings at the plant.

Staff training
Last June, Mr. Young-Chan Ji and Mr. Chanrok Oh have visited the Netherlands for a four-day Staff 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.

A great start
Mr. Young-Chan Ji, Production Manager at Samkwang Nonsan: “The training was our first exposure to hot end technologies and thanks to its focus very useful. Besides that, we have encountered many XPAR Vision staff members, from the Management, Research & Development department, Field Service Engineering and Consultancy. It was a great start of our cooperation with XPAR Vision!”

On-the-job training in Nonsan
Following the installation of XPAR Vision IR-D and IGC in July, several on-the-job trainings have been given in the plant, by XPAR Vision consultant/trainer Mr. Heinz Joksch. He has been working at XPAR Vision since 2011, after having worked as deputy job change crew leader with Gerresheimer Essen GmbH for more than 26 years: “Due to the language barrier, the first training was quite challenging”, he says. “Now, after two periods of three days on-the-job trainings, I can see that both IR-D and IGC are very well adapted to, despite the many job changes. I believe they are very happy with the results so far.”

Good results
“The results so far are good, indeed!”, says Mr. Young-Chan Ji. “Our quality to customer has improved and our forming process has become more stable, especially with regards to weight. Thanks to the well-developed technology and the strong guidance by the XPAR Vision team, we have managed to achieve good results in a very short time. In the coming weeks we’ll do a formal evaluation and decide on next investments. We believe that our cooperation will grow rapidly.”

New friends
“Besides all this, we have made new friends and had the ability to get to know the Netherlands a little bit. We have been to the flower auction in Aalsmeer, the windmills in Zaanse Schans and we enjoyed our lunch in the fishermen’s village of Volendam. It was a memorable stay in the Netherlands and the start of a cooperation with a great company!”
