Finishing equipment manufacturer Daco Solutions has been granted a UK patent for its fully automatic turret rewinder technology, the SVT series.
‘The Daco SVT turret really shines through how easy and safe it is to use, and how quick it is to set up. Most importantly, it solves many problems with globules of

Featuring a 700mm (27.5in) or optional 1-meter (40in) unwind module, the servo-driven SVT turret has four spindles and includes a high level of automation operated through a touch screen HMI interface. It can be combined with a flexo print station, die-cutting and slitting to produce finished label rolls in a single pass. A host of other options for achieving even higher efficiencies is also available.
With this glue-less automatic system, the only intervention the operator needs to do is to load the new cores onto the spindle and then apply the strip of tape using a hand held applicator. The exact positioning of the tape is automatically indicated by a laser to ensure accurate application. This fast and efficient action is performed while the machine is running, enabling continued production at speed.
‘We went through the lengthy patent application process because we believe that our British designed and built technology is unique in the market, and we are happy to report that the UK Intellectual Property Office agreed. We are very proud to have been granted this patent, as we continue to develop the best possible solutions that won’t break the bank but will help our customers increase profitability,’ added David Beynon, managing director and owner of Daco Solutions, who invented the new gluing technology.
