THIS latest Ecoline investment – Label Leaders’ third slitter/rewinder from Rotocon – expands the company’s arsenal in the quest for quicker turnaround times to five machines.
‘The new Ecoline RSI 330 creates a very competitive quality, speed and price proposition,’ asserts Rotocon director, Pascal Aengenvoort. ‘It has been re-engineered as a fully servo-driven model, featuring three servo motors (instead of two), increasing output from 230m/min to 300m/min. This higher speed has necessitated a more stringent web control and management system to ensure 100% accuracy. With the servo upgrade, we’ve also been able to remove the gearbox and clutch on the brake – simplifying maintenance for customers.’
Rotocon technician, Neil van der Westhuizen, installed and commissioned this latest generation slitter/rewinder, training Label Leaders’ operators within a day.
‘The machine is very simple to use thanks to the S-drive servo/software control system on the unwind, rewind and draw stations,’ he explains, ‘The icons on its moveable touchscreen console are based on smartphone navigation tools, making them easy for operators to recognise and follow.’
