Impress Print Services opts for new Ecoline RDF 330

L-R: Rotocon’s Durban branch manager, Akhmuth Sayed; Impress Print Services’ project manager, Mahomed Sulaman and co-directors, Suhail and Ziyad Agjee; plus Rotocon technicians, Oscar Mashele and Shaun Scott.

Durban-based label converter has invested in the newly upgraded Rotocon RDF 330 digital printed label converting and finishing machine to upgrade its production capabilities.

Impress Print Services chose Ecoline after conducting a thorough investigation into off-line finishing machines for printed labels to complement its digital press’ capabilities.

‘We contacted Rotocon because of its well-established installation base in the local market, the company’s reputation for balancing value-for-money machine reliability and quality with a Durban-based service team of two technicians,’ commented Suhail Agjee, co-director at Impress Print Services. 

‘We started negotiations and soon realized that the team could meet our requirements, including matching the specifications and pricing of a semi-rotary print station (and including it in the RDF 330 design for the first time) to help us save on printing plate costs.’

Rotocon has recently upgraded the Ecoline RDF 330 with an automatic sheer knife slitting system, high-speed matrix stripping system, and a new dual-turret slitter rewinder with two spindles, enabling finishing a roll of labels directly on the RDF 330 in one pass. The new version also features an Ecoline branded UV LED curing system and the latest servo motor and software enhancements.
