Omet – Rock‘n’Roll and Easy-Strip

The Rock’n’Roll matrix stripping unit

ITALY  • Matrix stripping is one of the key steps of the entire label production. The Rock’n’Roll stripping system and the new “Easy-Strip” allow to increase production speed and efficiency due to avoiding downtimes due to possible matrix breaks.

Rock’n’Roll is a module designed for the removal of matrix stripping waste. Thanks to the new “Dual Function” capability, it can work in two different ways according to the type of substrate and the die-cutting shape: either as contact-style or as tower-style system. The new “Easy-Strip” delam/relam assembly is an additional unit for removal operation in self-adhesive labels production. It helps to prevent the matrix from breaking especially with special materials like paper face stock at high speeds of up to 190 m/min (623 fpm). It opens and recouples all face stock materials, thus reducing the adhesive strength between the printed substrate and the backing, keeping a constant tension on both layers. This particular device is suitable for all OMET narrow-web presses, from iFlex to XFlex X6.
