Superior has partnered with Baumer HHS to upgrade one of its legacy folder-gluers with a variety of inline quality inspection systems including lot code scanning, color scanning, glue detection, and auto rejection. While the machine has always had barcode detection, these additional sensors allow for more consistent product and reduces the need for reliance on human intervention. This move effectively equalizes our folding-gluing equipment standards and increases scheduling flexibility in order to meet our customers' quick lead-time expectations. If you have any questions, please reach out to our team to arrange a tour.

The underlying philosophy that built our company vision.
Some goals make you happy.
