Rotoflex – Security series for stringent label inspection
USA • The new Security series for label inspection and finishing integrates into the Rotoflex VSI, HSI and VLI product lines, either as a new equipment option or as a retrofit to existing installations. Options available with this series include high resolution inspection, variable data inspection, braille inspection and bar code reading. Missing labels, remaining matrix, splices, flags, spots, fading and missing colour, text defects and registration can be detected.
In single-pass inspection mode, any repaired or replaced label will automatically be re-inspected before final slitting and finishing to ensure full compliance. A full log reporting package is available for regulatory audit requirements. Built with the Rotoflex URC control system providing an interface and the eDrive advanced web transport system, the Security series also features the Report Management System (RMS) tool for the collection and analysis of real-time production data, the new biometric (fingerprint) authentication for secure operator access, integrated inkjet and bar coding, backnumbering and more.
Another productivity advantage is integration with workflow or roll-mapping applications where press-side inspection systems generate a defect map which is sent to the rewinder. Defective area is automatically stopped at the splice table for repair or removal. The Rotoflex waste wind-up option can be added to remove large lengths of waste material while maintaining accurate length and label count. Very high rates of acceleration and deceleration coupled with accurate stop positioning ensure maximum production throughput.
