WHAT DOES THE AGREEMENT WITH GCA PROVIDE?
Applied Vision will install its Volcano® inspection systems for glass containers in the new furnaces designed by GCA and operational since 2022. The Turkish company, based in Kutahya, will use Applied Vision’s systems to inspect their glass containers’ sealing surface, base, and sidewall.

We have translated their technical needs and feedback into value by adding machine functionality for both GCA and Applied Vision to benefit.
