Packaging machinery firm Rotoflex has launched its new Security Series, the latest advancements in label inspection and finishing.
The new fully integrated modules integrate into the Rotoflex VSI, HSI and VLI product lines, either as a new option or as a retrofit to existing installations.
This will help customers to configure their finishing solution to meet the requirements of pharmaceutical compliance and high-security packaging.
Security Series offers high-resolution, variable data and braille inspection methods, as well as barcode reading.
It is also capable of detecting missing labels, remaining matrix, splices, flags, spots, fading and missing colour, text defects and registration.
Security Series features Rotoflex URC control system that offers a user-friendly operator interface, in addition to the report management system (RMS) tool, which collects and analyses real-time production data.
Rotoflex engineering and service director Manohar Dhugga said: "The new Security Series further revolutionises pharmaceutical and compliance label finishing with incorporation of the latest in servo technology for ultimate control and automation, and new software developments that support both a standard and pharma/security mode with the push of a button, making it truly a multipurpose machine.
"Our application design team has worked closely with pharmaceutical customers to ensure the Security Series complies with the most demanding and unique security inspection requirements, and is the preferred solution for increasing compliance demands."
Security Series is integrated with workflow or roll-mapping applications where press-side inspection systems generate a defect map which is sent to the rewinder. The defective area is automatically stopped at the splice table for repair or removal.
Large lengths of waste material can be removed by adding the Rotoflex waste wind-up option.
Rotoflex said that very high rates of acceleration and deceleration coupled with accurate stop positioning ensure maximum production throughput.
