Rotoflex, a world leader in inspection, slitting, rewinding and die cutting equipment confirmed another DSI die cutter/ inspection rewinder sale through their local South African representative SArepco. The new machine was sold to N & R Labels and was featured in the SArepco stand at last month’s Gapp Print Expo held in Johannesburg, along with a VSI slitter rewinder which was also sold to a South African printer.
Owned by Rabia Rawoot, N & R Labels is a local Cape Town label printer serving a range of companies in the surrounding area. Due to higher demand for print runs on their Mark Andy 2200 press, Rabia purchased the DSI “Combo” for precise offline die cutting of blank labels. Configured to also run in inspection mode with a Unilux LED2000 series inspection strobe light, the DSI provides N & R Labels the flexibility of slitting, rewinding and inspection of finished label rolls as well as die cutting. The multi-purpose offline finishing solution was successfully installed by SArepco at the end of March.
A compact footprint machine, the Rotoflex DSI die cutting platform performs with servo-driven accuracy in die cutting and rewinding, and speeds up to 1000 fpm (305 m/min). Standard features include separate servos for capstan stripper and matrix rewind, slitting tension zone, outside supported unwind and rewind shafts and the integrated URC 2.0 control system and eDrive 2.0. These operator-friendly systems provide higher quality output with quick set up and robust operation.
Ralph Beier, Director of Rotoflex comments: “After spending four days in the SArepco stand at Gapp Print Expo, it was evident that owner Paul Bouwer has established a very professional and effective organization. In operation for over 30 years, the SArepco team is highly technical and knowledgeable regarding the products they represent. The team is very connected to the South African industry as proven with the steady flow of companies to their stand that own product represented by SArepco.”
