Rotolabel recently invested in two Rotocontrol machines for the expansion on its offering of a pharmaceutical booklet.
A BL440 series high-speed booklet machine and an RSP-H series 100 percent pharmaceutical inspection machine were purchased alongside a vision system from AVT.
Rotocon managed the sale and installation. The company is the local agent for Rotocontrol and AVT South Africa.
The Rotocontrol BL440 series produces booklet labels with variable scopes and formats. Its operational speed is up to 65m/min. It features large diameter idler rollers, a direct web path and web widths up to 510mm.
The Rotocontrol RSP-H series is specifically designed for compliance of demanding security label inspection and finishing applications.
An AVT Helios vision system that provides advanced 100 percent automatic label inspection and quality assurance was included in the sale.
The combination of the three components provides Rotolabel with an end-to-end solution for the inspection and finishing of high quality and competitively priced booklet labels.
Rotolabel’s new booklet and inspection finishing solution from Rotocontrol and AVT will primarily be used to broaden the finishing of its pharmaceutical ‘xpandalabel’ booklet labels in the company’s Johannesburg factory where 100 percent compliance is mandatory.
Rotolabel’s GM, Khorommbi Nelwamondo says after an evaluation of the company’s business market, it is evident that growing its pharmaceutical offering, specifically the xpandalabel line of booklet labels, is advantageous.
Nelwamondo says Rotocon presented the Rotocontrol pharmaceutical booklet finishing capabilities with the integration of the AVT inspection system as a valuable combination.
‘With this solution now fully operational, we have a powerful pharmaceutical offering for the growing demand of the South African market, and are fully supported locally by Rotocon through its expanded new location in Johannesburg,’ he comments.
