Standing: Patrick and Pascal Aengenvoort and Akhmuth Sayed (ROTOCON), with Lizelle du Preez and Bruce Sutcliffe (Blue Print Labelling). Seated: Devlin Brodowicz (Blue Print Labelling), Michael Aengenvoort (ROTOCON) and Wade Brodowicz (Blue Print Labelling).

Eight RFP ECOLINE flexo presses have been sold in South Africa since its introduction to the market 18 months ago. Blue Print Labelling has signed another order to add additional ECOLINE equipment to their label production fleet.

Purchased was an RFP-340 8-colour flexographic printing press and an RSI-430 fully-servo slitter rewinder with inspection. Previous ECOLINE investments made by Blue Print Labelling’s owners, Devlin and Wade Brodowicz, include an RSI-330 slitter rewinder and an RDS-330 slitter rewinder with die cutting to produce blank labels.

‘We have partnered with ROTOCON for many years,’ said Devlin Brodowicz. ‘In addition to our ECOLINE machine investments, we have purchased consumables and a pre-owned flexographic press through ROTOCON.’

‘ROTOCON’s customer service and after-sales support is exceptional,’ added Wade Brodowicz. ‘Their ECOLINE machines are built with a compact design and easy-to-use control panel – they have proven to be extremely reliable, and our operators enjoy running the equipment.’

The cost-efficient ECOLINE RFP flexographic printing press balances registration accuracy with high running speeds and uses the latest Yaskawa servo drive and control system. Each printing unit is driven by a separate servo motor – 14 in total on an eight-colour printing press and two die-cutting stations.

‘We appreciate the trust Blue Print Labelling has placed with ROTOCON and value their ongoing business and support,’ said Michael Aengenvoort, ROTOCON director and co-owner.

Blue Print Labelling is a family owned business established in 2012 and initially trading as Label Mart. Its humble beginnings in variable data printing laid the foundation for the business. Today, this still forms an integral part of the business amongst other specialised and full colour printing services.
