Description

Air Logic Power Systems LLC (ALPS) effectively augments TASI with a specific focus on packaging, through design and manufacture of automated inspection equipment to leak test plastic containers and perform auxiliary inspections. ALPS is dedicated to providing reliable, state-of-the-art, top quality machinery to enable its customers to meet and exceed the quality needs of the dynamically changing plastic container market.

Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, ALPS employs experienced engineering and production teams to design, machine, fabricate, assemble and thoroughly test each machine to exacting standards. The Company's extensive product line provides the plastic container industry with automated solutions from manual systems, to single and multiple-station linear units, to high-speed rotary leak testers capable of speeds up to 1,200 bottles per minute. The existing population of ALPS machines is currently verifying the integrity of approximately 50 billion containers annually.

ALPS are represented in Australia & new Zealand by HBM Packaging

Leak Testing Equipment 5 Main Value Propositions What To Expect from a Modern Leak Tester • ALPS is the global market leader for equipment to leak test plastic containers • We are seeking continued global expansion by leveraging this experience to maximize the value of leak testing equipment • Value Proposition #1: Speed and Sensitivity • Value Proposition #2: Modern Controls • Value Proposition #3: Ease of Use • Value Proposition #4: Self Monitoring • Value Proposition #5: Enhanced Checks • Please review the next slides offering more detail © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 2

Value #1: Speed & Sensitivity Leak Testing Equipment Maximized Output Per Leak Test Station • Modern Speed Examples: a) Single head unit capable of 100 BPM on 0.5L containers (SC Linear model). In the old days this required a 6-station rotary leak tester. b) 4 heads capable of 250 BPM (Speed-Glider model). In the old days this required a 18-station rotary leak tester. c) 30 heads capable of 1200 BPM (NexGen Rotary). In the old days this required two 30 head leak testers. • Hole Size Sensitivity is now down to 0.1mm, the average diameter of a human hair. Old, low tech machines only achieved 1.0mm. © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 3

Value #2: Modern Controls Leak Testing Equipment Standard Color Touch Screen Interface Icon Based Menu Structure Only 2 button presses to reach all main screens • High quality HMI’s are now emulating modern smart phones © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC Back to Products

Value #3: Ease Of Use Leak Testing Equipment Guided Setup – Mechanical Steps • Mechanical Talent no longer required (no tools, no training needed) © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 5

Value #3: Ease Of Use Leak Testing Equipment Guided Setup – Regulators, Conveyor Speed & Leak Test • Leak Test Electronics Expert no longer required (no expertise needed) © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 6

Value #4: Self Monitoring Leak Testing Equipment Standard Self Test Feature Metal Test Leak Orifice and Self Test Valve Self Test Pushbutton (main screen) Auto Self Test (supervisor setting screen) A Self Test button is accessible on the main screen and setup screens. When the button is pressed, a self test will start at the beginning of the next leak test. A Self Test will turn on a valve which incorporates a metal orifice (specified by its diameter) into the test volume, simulating a bad container with the equivalent diameter pinhole. Rejection of the container during a Self Test will verify that the machine is properly set up to detect the specified hole diameter. • Standard verification with the press of a button (or automated) © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 7

Value #5: Enhanced Checks Leak Testing Equipment Pressure Decay Technology LOW sealing force Test Probe & Test Head examples Seal Surface Defect examples (e.g. short shot, nick, bad trim, cocked neck) • ALPS had perfected Low Pressure testing to minimize bottle distortion and maximize seal surface sensitivity to enhance the leak test • This capability has significantly expanded our market into “non traditional” bottle leak testing such as PET (now half of our installed base) and Injection Blow Molded containers © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 8

Leak Testing Equipment Historical Performance • Air Logic Power Systems LLC (ALPS), founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA in 1974, is a leading manufacturer of on-line container leak inspection equipment • Container leak testing equipment is the complete focus of the company • ALPS systems range from single-station Linear testers, to multi-station Linear units, to Rotary machines with up to 30 test stations • ALPS has delivered more than 2,500 leak test machines (10,000+ leak test circuits) with the current population of units testing more than 50 billion containers annually © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 9

Leak Testing Equipment • • • • Global Organization ALPS joined the TASI Group of companies in 2000 Privately owned, combined sales in excess of $180M 3 Divisions: Test & Inspection; Flow; and Assembly & Test 10 companies, locations in USA, Europe and Asia © 2014 Air Logic Power Systems, LLC 10
