MARK ANDY: ROTOFLEX LAUNCHES VTI AND DF1 OFFLINE DIGITAL FINISHING SOLUTIONS
Rotoflex, the finishing company under the Mark Andy Inc. corporate umbrella, is proud to announce the launch of two digital finishers, DF1 and VTI Series.
The DF1 is a semi-rotary offline finishing and converting machine designed to meet the rising demand for unique short run labels in a simple, fast, precise, and affordable way, allowing converters to accelerate production and profits. Built on a robust platform with finishing speed up to 750 fpm (228.6 mpm) for full-rotary and 250 fpm (76.2 mpm) for semi-rotary, with accurate semi-rotary die-cutting functionality, the Rotoflex DF1 is an ideal addition for upwards of 80% of label converters worldwide. The quick set-up and dynamic operation allow converters to decorate, die-cut, slit, and strip labels in a single step, getting final product out the door faster and more efficiently than using multiple means of finishing. The new Rotoflex DF1 Offline Digital Finisher offers high production level speed and 50% faster changeovers than conventional converting systems. A single hybrid station brings finishing and converting to a level of financial accessibility that is unprecedented in the market space. The VTI Series is an advanced tabletop finishing machine created to ensure conformity with stringent regulations of the pharmaceutical and high-security packaging industries. With a cutting-edge operator control system for inspection and finishing, the VTI Series detects and corrects missing labels, remaining matrix, splices, flags, spots, fading and missing color, and defects in text and registrations. This allows converters to effortlessly inspect, rework, and re-inspect labels, which is especially necessary if the application involves 100% accuracy, variable data, or braille inspection. The new Rotoflex VTI Advanced Tabletop Finisher The exclusive URC 2.0 control system offers multilane counting and is the most advanced defect management system available in the market. The URC 2.0 increases operator efficiency by reducing set-up time and waste through its automated functionality. The optional biometric login security feature and online dashboard for data analysis provide for a complete finishing solution. Another important feature of the VTI series is the eDrive 2.0, a system that increases production effectiveness through optimization of acceleration and deceleration while preserving roll quality and characteristics. The maximum speed – which varies according to the application – is 750 fpm (228 mpm). The VTI can be integrated with 100% vision inspection systems and with reverse fault placement functionality allows for pharmaceutical grade inspection. In addition to all features, Rotoflex designed the VTI Series with a user-friendly interface and ergonomic design for sit down operation, making it comfortable for converters to smoothly manage operation. Rotoflex DF1 and VTI machines are available for immediate order, with the first DF1 machine shipping to a U.S. customer in August.
