The C-series is a modular slitting machine with large unwind diameter, decurling device, die-cutting stations, label dispensers and a sheeter station

GERMANY • Rotocontrol sold two of their finishing machines to Italian converter Italgrafica. Ordered was a RSC-series slitter/rewinder and a custom-built C-series high-quality slitting machine, for slitting non-adhesive material and finishing a range of blank and printed self-adhesive labels, serving a variety of industries.

The RSC-series is a compact, extremely robust machine available in a range of widths up to 640 mm (25.2”) and operating speed up to 320 m/min. The model ordered by Italgrafica will be built with a BST Shark 4000 LEX 100% print defect detection system and the Rotocontrol electronic knife positioning system (EPOS), which fully automates the slitting set-up, reducing job change time to less than a minute, even with shear systems using upper and lower blades. The second finishing machine ordered by Italgrafica is a fully-loaded, modular and custom-built C-series slitting machine. Accommodating 340 mm (13.4”) and 540 mm (21.3”) web widths, it also features a large unwind diameter of 1000 mm (39.4”), decurling device, three die-cutting stations (including back-side die cutting), three label dispensers and a sheeter station.

Headquartered in the province of Vicenza, Italgrafica is part of the Konig Print Group and produces a range of blank and printed self-adhesive labels, thermal labels, inmould labels, ISEGA certified labels, shrink-sleeves and tags. The company serves a range of markets including beverage, food, floriculture, chemical, retail, logistics, and clothing with finishing options including hologram, braille, resin, scratch-and-sniff, hot stamping, screen printing, and RFID. Italgrafica was the first Italian company to produce environmentally sustainable labels.
