Rotoflex has introduced a HSI slitter rewinder for label slitting, inspection and rewinding in high volumes.
Claimed to be built with the ruggedness and reliability as its flagship VSI vertical design series, the HSI will provide an operator-friendly horizontal configuration to label converters.
It has web widths of 330mm and 440mm, a 1,000fpm running speed, an extra-large inspection table, a 37in high-editing area, an easily accessible slitting module, and a convenient straightforward web path and finished roll rewind location.
With its end-to-end servo control design, HSI also comes with Rotoflex URC 2.0 proprietary control system carrying simple menus and an intuitive interface, which enable operators to view all functions from one screen.
Given its small footprint, it is configurable for different vision inspection solutions and provides a range of options such as the new biometric (fingerprint) authentication for operator access and the Rotoflex exclusive report management system (RMS).
RMS produces several detailed, customisable reports on many variable aspects of performance such as runtime, defects, production volume and scrap generation, besides comparing outputs of multiple equipment.
Rotoflex director of engineering and service Manohar Dhugga said: "Designed with the proven robust construction of our successful VSI series, the HSI is an advantageous solution for converters preferring a horizontal slitting inspection configuration in their off-line finishing machines.
"The HSI is one of many new business responsive technologies to be unveiled in the next few months, supporting our commitment to deliver high-quality, innovative solutions that drive customer profitability."
