Vinsak, the distributor of ABG International in India, has installed ABG RTS sheeter at Mumbai-based self-adhesive label supplier JK Fine Prints.
RTS is a servo-driven sheeter with guillotine-style cutting. It is available in three web widths – 330mm (13 inches), 430mm (17 inches) and 530mm (21 inches) and can cut to mark, to length, or inter-label gap with an accuracy of +/-0.15mm.
The standard machine is equipped with an electromagnetically braked unwind c/w 76mm (3 inches) air expanding unwind mandrel, splice table with interlocked web clamps, and servo-driven infeed nip roller. It also features a guillotine cutting mechanism and a 1000mm (39 inches) long shingle delivery table which has an accelerator/jog function for batch separation.
The machine is controlled via a 152mm (6 inches) color TFT touch screen HMI with multilingual operating instructions.
Optional equipment includes alternative unwind mandrel diameters, razor and slitting units c/w five sets of knives, Venturi trim extraction and a fully programmable inter-sheet waste trim function.
Himanshu Kapur, director of JK Fine Prints said that he had evaluated other equipment but selected the ABG sheeter for its accuracy in the sheeting process especially of difficult to handle filmic materials.
Ross Hollaway, sales manager for India and the Middle East, ABG, added: ‘We are very happy that JK Fine Prints has reinforced their relationship with ABG with this new kit. Along with Mohan Pailwan of Vinsak India, this sale has reinforced our teamwork in offering a new series of equipment that Indian label printers would find very useful in expanding their product offerings.’
