Multitec will launch two servo-driven presses – VSI Servo S2 and Ecosmart Servo at Labelexpo India 2016. While VSI Servo S2 is based on the company’s Ecoflex VSi platform with a web width of 370 mm and heavier frames, Ecosmart Servo is based on the Ecosmart platform. Both the presses have been provided with electronic pre-register to cut down on start-up wastage. All controls on the print units are operated through HMI and there is an HMI at the end of press too.
VSi Servo S2 has two servo drives on each print station and it comes with an option of auto-register. Die units, in-feed and out-feed are also servo-controlled. Other features include chill rolls, zero-break contact type matrix rewinder and all the other features borrowed from the Ecoflex VSi press. Additions to the list of options offered are the multi-layer label cross over unit and the new ‘trickylabel’ matrix remover for extremely complicated matrix shapes. Ecosmart Servo features servo drives on all print and die units as well as in-feed and out-feed. The press is aimed at customers who do not want to invest in a press with chill rolls and still want all the benefits of a full servo press, says the company.
