Record-Breaking Sales for ROTOCON at Propak Africa

Press release from the issuing company

17 orders for label printing and finishing equipment were confirmed during the show held 12-15 March in Johannesburg.

Cape Town, South Africa – ROTOCON confirms a record-breaking exhibition across their three stands at the triennial Propak Africa held this year 12-15 March in Johannesburg, with 17 confirmed orders for label printing and finishing equipment.

Ordered were five Screen Truepress Jet L350UV+ series UV inkjet presses, five ROTOCON Ecoline RDF 330 digital label converting and four Ecoline RSD 330 label diecutting/inspection machines, an AVT Helios 100% automated inline inspection solution with WorkFlow Link, a Domino K600i digital printer, and an MPS EF 430 8-colour press.

"Our success at Propak Africa was truly a team effort," said Michael Aengenvoort, owner of ROTOCON. "Representatives from our partners AVT, MPS, Screen and Wink made an overseas journey to join us at Propak, and five industry suppliers sponsored material and consumables for equipment running on our stands."

Propak visitors saw live label production across ROTOCON's three stands. Labels were printed on Screen's Truepress Jet L350UV+ and finished on two ROTOCON Ecoline brand finishing machines: the RDF 330 digital label converting and RSI 330 slitter rewinder with inspection. The ROTOCON Ecoline RSD 330 diecutter and Wink's SmartGap® Touch digital adjustable anvil cylinder for die-cutting were also featured.
