Vision Inspection System

ALI has developed and implemented within our ISO 9001:2008 quality system the best standard operating procedures to uphold quality control throughout our manufacturing process. In efforts to achieve continuous improvement goals we have implemented 100% Vision Inspection Systems to further decrease the human element.

Our Vision Inspection Systems enable 100% inspection at high-speeds which allows us to increase total throughput to meet demanding delivery schedules while exceeding our customer quality expectations.

Bar Code Verification System

Additional checkpoints built into our quality management system include our ability to verify the bar codes produced across all printing methods. Inspecting bar code print quality is highly important to determine if they are “readable” in accordance with ISO/ANSI standards. Each bar code scan verifies the grade and the bar code content ensuring the correct information requested is what our production process delivers.

Ink System

We mix our inks on-site to match all process and pantone plus colors. Special match formulations can be saved within our color match system to maintain custom formulations and special match brand colors.
Ink Systems Available:

  • Water-based
  • UV-Cure
  • Metallic
  • Neon
  • Security Fluorescent & Infra-Red

Color Accuracy, Management

ALI understands the importance of color consistency across production runs.  It is vital for brand recognition and agency compliance, therefore each label should be produced with the standard color(s).

In order to address this age-old issue, ALI utilizes the Pantone Matching System (PMS) to establish colors with our customers.  Furthermore, we ensure color consistency across production runs through the use of X-Rite eXact spectrodensitometer.  These tools enable us to truly understand, control and manage color throughout the entire label production process.


At ALI, we have tracking systems in place to ensure identification and traceability of incoming materials to finished product.  You can rest assured that your order can be properly identified through all phases of production and shipping.

The process includes:

Raw material traceability (including Certificates of Conformance from our suppliers)

Work-In-Process (WIP) traceability

Final product traceability thru the use of individual core id labels
