The Label House Group expands ultra-thin film finishing with Rotoflex VLI-800 Series
The Label House Group, a supplier of labels and packaging within the Caribbean and South American regions, has installed a Rotoflex VLI-800 inspection, slitting and rewind system for finishing ultra-thin (10 microns) point of purchase (POP) pouches and flexible packaging.
Familiar with Rotoflex off-line label finishing technology from three previously purchased machines, Gharish Maharaj, technical manager at The Label House Group, turned to Rotoflex for the development of a customized, wider-web version of the VLI to accommodate growing demand for film finishing applications on thin material.
‘For label finishing, Rotoflex is a reliable brand backed with years of in-house engineering expertise, which is why I entrusted them to meet our challenging design needs for film finishing,’ said Maharaj. ‘With such challenging applications, the Rotoflex team worked with us to fine-tune the machine to our requirements. Thanks also to superior after-sales support from Jaipal Thind, service manager at Rotoflex, our VLI-800 has run non-stop since with impressive speed up to 1,000 feet per minute.’
The newly developed wider-web Rotoflex VLI-800 series addresses the finishing demands of film packaging, labels, unsupported film, tension-sensitive materials and various specialty substrates.
Designed with simplified operator control and comfort, the VLI-800 machine is configurable to meet a full range of inspection rewinding needs including matrix and missing label detection, variable data printing, multi-lane counting, clear-on-clear label count, and more.
‘This customized machine is just one example of our advanced technology developments and expertise in thin film material,’ said Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex VP of operations. ‘We are open to working with label printers and converters in designing bespoke label finishing machines to accommodate unique production needs.’
