Key vision systems appointment

Vision systems expert Karl Holt to spearhead international growth

Experienced vision systems expert Karl Holt has joined our team as Visions Solutions Director and will head up our vision inspection arm as we expand into Europe.

The latest appointment is part of our commitment to enabling industry through innovative technology

As one of the most regulated industries in the world, food production is subject to increasing consumer scrutiny and strict labeling requirements.

Recalls in the food industry are both expensive and damaging. What’s more, labeling errors and omissions account for the majority of recall notices, so a reliable vision inspection system – capable of assessing label contents – is paramount.

Delivering pinpoint accuracy, the SparcEye label inspection system is designed to be fully incorporated into Sparc’s 420 range. Inaccuracies in product labeling are identified via the continuous top and bottom label inspection, forming a vital link in the traceability chain.

By automating processes and removing the need for human intervention, a repeatable and consistent production process can be achieved, driving increased efficiency, security and control of product quality, and eliminating errors in date and price coding and allergen labeling.

Karl combines experience of the food industry and the vision inspection market


Karl Holt said: “It’s an exciting time for Sparc Systems, and I’m looking forward to building relationships, generating sales and contributing to the overall growth of the business.”

DavidBuckley, Managing Director at Sparc Systems, said: “We plan to continue our global expansion in 2017, and are delighted to welcome Karl to the team. His extensive experience of the vision systems market and the food industry, both in the UK and abroad, make him ideally qualified to lead the team.”
