Rotoflex launches DF3 finishing unit

Rotoflex, which is owned by Mark Andy, has shown off a new DF3 digital finishing unit at the recent LabelExpo show in America.

Rotoflex has developed this DF3 digital finishing unit for label converters.

The DF3 is a configurable offline digital finishing and converting solution. It uses servo motors from unwind to rewind with print and die cut units in between. It takes webs up to 340mm wide and runs at 228mpm with full rotary die cutting

The DF3 is aimed at digital and non-hybrid label presses without inline converting functionality. It uses a rail system that allows lamination, foil decoration, rotary screen (both conventional or UV digital alternatives) and advanced waste removal. As well as full rotary it can also do semi-rotary diecutting, with a wide range of repeat sizes. Rotoflex says that it’s possible to change dies over in 30 seconds or less,

Kevin Gourlay, senior vice president of Rotoflex, says: “There was a significant gap in the market for an offline solution to support brand requirements. This machine hits all the key needs- value-add finishes, high speeds, and options for any business challenge. We’ve had many companies already commit to the technology at Labelexpo and we anticipate it to make a major impact on their bottom lines in Q4.”
