Gietz Launches Press With Next Generation Machine User Interface

Gietz Launches Press With Next Generation Machine User Interface

The ROFO 450 ECO is developed as a core model for narrow web embellishment processes of printed and non-printed web substrates. This makes it the perfect solution for the fundamentals of label production and packaging printing.

The ROFO 450 ECO is designed to process pressure sensitive materials (adhesive labelstock), paper, cardboard, plastic film and composite substrates. The machine focuses on providing a compact and economic solution for label printers and converters from small to large job runs. With this Gietz follows on with its ROFO 450 series.

The newly developed ROFO 450 ECO targets print converters and label manufacturers looking for a compact solution that meets 90% the markets need. It is likewise a good starting point for companies looking to enter the market.

The ECO version still features the well-known key benefits of its predecessors such as large stamping surface and a unique stamping force. Moreover, the machine is aimed to have a good market requirement fit.

The ROFO 450 ECO provides reliable hot foil stamping results, catering the needs of label producers and print converters, who value quality first. For working with small and large job runs, the ROFO 450 ECO is an economic webfed flatbed hot foil stamping solution. At the same time, the machine impresses users with its operator friendliness, performance and state-of-the-art-hot foil stamping technology.

The unit can be supplied for incorporation into all current and established narrow web printing/converting/finishing machines or alternatively with its own substrate web unwind device and rewind device to be run as a stand-alone finishing system.

The press features a dynamic foil web transport for up to two foil feeds. The 90 degree rotating foiling unit allows for the foils to be run along with or transverse to the substrate web running direction. The friction unrewinders and rewinders allow the use of single or multiple webs and thus offer maximum application flexibility.

The pairing of hot foil and substrate is effected by the flat-flat stamping principle. A cam-controlled platen press by means of flat stamping dies allows a flexible and versatile application range, a minimal consumption of foil and the use of various stamping tools (engraved, etched, combination dies). The stamping principle allows reliable hot foil stamping, blind embossing, and combination of foil stamping and embossing in one pass.

The user-friendly design of the machine makes set-up and change over straightforward. The setting of dies and counterparts is easy, without any disconnection of the substrate web. Perfect make-ready possibilities are accessible underneath the counter plate. The changing of foils is user-friendly and handled conveniently on top of the machine.

The newly developed interface features a touch optimised screen with self-explaining icons and controls. Higher security and easy learning trough context-sensitive real time help is available. The Intuitive instructions for hands on training, can reduce familiarisation time for new operators. If requested, a quick remote support by the Gietz Service Helpdesk is possible.

The next generation user interface even enables Gietz to move with times in the digitalisation age. Soon new possibilities can be unlocked in connection with Internet of Things as well as Industry 4.0 connectivity trough the help of cloud technology.
