Goshen, KY (PRWEB) September 28, 2005
Raytec Vision, an associated company of the Sacmi Group, has been awarded a prize by the European Commission for excellence in international technology transfer. The company, a specialist in production process X-ray quality control, has, in fact, established a partnership with the Spanish firm Chupa Chups to supply this renowned sweets firm with product quality and shape control technology.
Raytec Vision was selected as the best example of technology transfer from a total of 71 cases presented to the commission. The reasons behind the juryÂs decision included the fact that Âthe matching of the two companies contributed to heightened competitiveness of a small-medium business (Raytec Vision) and helped create a key agreement with a foreign multinationalÂ and that Âthe transferred technology was integrated into the production line, a crucial stage of the production process.Â
Raytec Vision was assisted during the technology transfer process by Innovation Relay Centers (IRC) of Turin. At the outset of 2003 the Chupa Chups company began searching for technologies that would allow it to improve the quality control of its products. During a brokering event (a fixed meeting program) in the foodstuff industry organized by IRC Cenemes di Murcia, a matching system brought the two companies together and Raytec Vision was able to offer this Spanish giant a custom-made X-ray inspection system designed to weed out any defects on Chupa Chups lollipops. Raytec Vision took care of every single aspect of installation and technical assistance and, today, continues to monitor the system to ensure nothing less that top-flight performance.
