Quality Certifications & Processes
Topflight’s quality program includes extensive employee training, certified in-house auditors, and supplier auditing and certification. We work with our customer’s quality and regulatory teams to ensure all requirements are met.
To ensure quality assurance and process control through every step of production, Topflight has installed AVT systems on several of our printing presses and rewind equipment. AVT is a superior automated vision system and inspection process exclusively designed for labels and narrow web printing. The heightened defect recognition, high quality cameras and sophisticated software result in the delivery of high-quality print jobs.
Topflight’s quality lab and production floor contains a variety of testing and verification equipment capable of optical or electronic inspections as precise as 0.0001″. Testing equipment is regularly calibrated to ensure compliance with adhesion, tensile, coat weight, tolerance, opacity, clarity, color hue, readability, scannability, resistance, and capacitance requirements. Most tests are performed to ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials) international standards.
