The HM300 FLX can print on a liner, apply a release coating, flip the web over between any of the stations, hot melt coat, laminate in a face stock if required, 4C print, die cut, slit and rewind all in one pass.

TS Converting Equipment Ltd/Elite Cameron have partnered with Focus Label Machinery to develop a range of machines – such as the HM300 – for the manufacture of labels, tapes and tamper evident security products.

The modular format of the machine can be configured to provide a great mix of capabilities. It eliminates the need to purchase pre-release coated or treated liners and combines multiple operations for inline manufacture of finished products.

The Flexo’ units can be used for printing and the application of a wide variety of UV curable release coatings. The machine uses the latest Rhino GEW UV system, double sided Vetaphone corona treater and Proact web cleaner.

The coating module incorporates Valco Melton coating equipment, now standard issue on the full range of Elite Cameron Hot Melt Coaters. The head accurately applies stripes or full width, streak free coating of HM adhesives. The coat weight is monitored and displayed continuously on an NDC measurement system.

This totally integrated solution is controlled using a Schneider PLC, with servo drives for perfect registration and tension control throughout. ‘We partnered with Focus to deliver this first machine to a UK based customer,’ commented Tim Self, of TS Converting, ‘We are both privately owned businesses with a common goal to develop cutting edge technology for a worldwide base of customers.’

‘We have known each other for many years working in different but associated industries,’ commented David Lee, director of Focus, ‘We have enjoyed working with the team at TS Converting and have delivered a truly integrated solution for the industry. We are already working on other applications together and feel this is the beginning of a close and mutually beneficial relationship.’
