US-based label converter, Diversified Labeling Solutions (DLS) has installed Vectra AutoSet SGTR1700-4 turret rewinder from A B Graphic International (ABG).

An ABG customer since 2006, DLS has invested in several turret rewinders over the years. Due to significant growth in demand for pressure-sensitive labels, and to expand production of specialized products, including small roll labels, the company has recently made significant investments in new equipment across all its facilities. This investment includes two new Vectra rewinders that will work inline with new presses in both their Reno, NV and Itasca, IL facilities.   
 
DLS CEO, Jim Kersten, said: ‘For the last year and a half, we have seen unprecedented demand for labels. Growth has been especially pronounced in large volume label orders for manufacturing, warehousing, distribution, and logistics operations. This new equipment has allowed us to substantially increase our capacity, while also expanding our geographic reach.’   
 
ABG’s Vectra AutoSet Model SGTR1700-4 glueless turret rewinder provides automatic set up and changeover features.   
 
‘The Vetra turret rewinders offer us greater flexibility in producing long run orders more efficiently in-line, while allowing us the opportunity to run small finished rolls or larger finished rolls for the markets we serve. Additionally, features that are important to us such as a glueless operation integrated labeler systems and auto load processes, all help make us more efficient and more competitive.  
 
‘We also like the yearly preventative maintenance agreement that we have in place to keep the machines running well. ABG has a solid sales and operations support team and they are always there if we need them. ABG turret rewinders are our go to piece of equipment for inline finishing needs because of their outstanding reliability,’ Kersten concluded.
