Valco Melton ( is announces that its ClearVision® PackChek™ System has been named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the “Best New Product or Service of the Year - Industrial Products & Services” category in the 11th Annual International Business Awards.

ClearVision’s PackChek System is the latest innovation in hot melt inspection for end-of-line packaging. Instead of relying solely on visual inspection of each glue bead, PackChek employs thermal imaging by evaluating the heat signature of every package to ensure hot melt glue has been applied to the correct locations.

To date, PackChek is the only vision inspection system of its kind utilizing thermal and visual imaging, and customers are already reaping the numerous benefits including: real time feedback on faulty product, and the ability to log defect and analyze long term performance.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small - are eligible to submit nominations. The 2014 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories.

Nicknamed the Steviesfor the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Westin Paris – Vendôme Hotel in Paris, France in October. 

ClearVision’s PackChek System is part of Valco Melton's strategy to increase awareness of issues customers have with defective cases and work in partnership with them to resolve these issues.
