The cost-efficient ECOLINE RSI 340 slitter rewinder is a fully servo-driven machine featuring three servo motors, an output of 300m/min, an easy-to-use control panel and an open machine design. Weightron, a Southern Africa provider of labelling services and industrial weighing equipment, has invested in this machine as well as an ECOLINE RFP 340 8-colour LED flexo press.

The ROTOCON service team successfully installed the RSI at Weightron’s manufacturing facility in Johannesburg at the end of November, and it has since been in full production for film finishing.

The ECOLINE RFP 340 8-colour LED flexo press uses the latest Yaskawa servo drive and control system. Each printing unit is driven by a separate servo motor — 14 in total. The printing units are designed for optimal ink transfer and pressure adjustment to guarantee crisp printing in high line counts, text, linework, solids, adhesives and varnishes.

The LED-UV curing system ensures an improved energy footprint across the short web path and the impression cylinder is equipped with a water chiller system so that the filmic material won’t be affected by the UV curing temperatures during printing.

Ashay Sewpersadh, co-owner of Weightron, said, ‘It was ROTOCON’s reputation in the market that made our decision to invest in their ECOLINE machines easy. The ECOLINE RSI has exceeded our expectations — our team is especially impressed by the efficiency and production speed of the rewinder.’

‘Weightron and ROTOCON are two family-run businesses and are happy to engage in a long-term partnership,’ said Patrick Aengenvoort, director and co-founder of ROTOCON.
