Debuting will be the new HSI slitter rewinder, in an operator-friendly horizontal configuration
St Louis, Missouri USA - On the Mark Andy stand 319 during Labelexpo Americas September 13-15 Rotoflex is set to present a wide array of offline finishing solutions. The newest Business Responsive Technology from Rotoflex is the HSI 330 designed for high volume label slitting, inspection and rewinding in an operator-friendly horizontal configuration. Joining the HSI is the compact, high-speed VSI 330slitter rewinder and the VLI 700 premier inspection, slitting and rewind system for conventional labels and unsupported film.
The HSI brings many operational and ergonomic benefits to label converters, featuring end-to-end servo control, web width of 330 or 440mm, up to 1000 fpm (305 mpm) running speed, extra-large inspection table, 37 inch (940mm) high editing area, and easily accessible slitting module. Configurable for a variety of vision inspection solutions, the HSI offers a wide range of options including biometric authentication, and Rotoflex's exclusive Report Management System (RMS), which will be demonstrated live on stand. These features help converters maximize uptime, accessibility and security.

Daily interactive presentations will be held for all three machines on stand. Of particular interest to flexible packaging printers, the VLI will be at a significantly wide web width of 700mm and will run delicate film applications at speeds of 2000 fpm (610 mpm).
Also demonstrated will be the advanced URC 2.0 proprietary control system. This system, available on all Rotoflex finishing solutions offers simple menus and an intuitive interface, giving operators the ability to monitor all functions from a single screen. Each of the machines will also demonstrate the benefits of vision inspection, with the EyeC ProofRunner™ (VLI 700), E+L SMARTSCAN (VSI 330) and Nikka Research Alis M1+ (HSI 330).
Rotoflex sales and engineering veterans will educate show visitors on the complete portfolio of innovative solutions that drive customer profitability. For example, Vericut3 next generation premier off-line digital and conventional web finishing solution, the new Security Series for extremely demanding requirements of advanced security and pharmaceutical applications, and servo-driven die cutters such as the versatile DSI for precision die cutting or advanced roll and label inspection, and the top-of-the-line DLI platform with high-speed precision and faster operating speeds.
Customers interested in retrofitting or rebuilding existing Rotoflex installations with the latest technology advancements are also welcomed to visit the stand for a personal consultation. This work is now completed in Rotoflex's new, 12,000 square ft. building near Toronto, making these enhancements even more accessible to the North American market.
