Rotoflex Security Series VLI with optional waste wind-up and top/bottom inkjet printing module

Rotoflex has released the new Security Series, bringing the latest advancements in stringent label inspection and finishing to its VSI, HSI and VLI product lines, either as a new equipment option or as a retrofit. The fully integrated modules seamlessly integrate in the Rotoflex existing installations enabling customers to configure their finishing solution to meet the ever-increasing requirements of pharmaceutical compliance and high security packaging.

Options available with the Security Series include very high resolution inspection, variable data inspection, braille inspection and bar code reading. Missing labels, remaining matrix, splices, flags, spots, fading and missing color, text defects and registration can all be detected by the Security Series. 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 exclusive Rotoflex URC control system providing a user-friendly operator interface and the eDrive advanced web transport system, the Security Series also features the powerful 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, back numbering and more.

Another productivity advantage of the Security Series 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.

“With the SPI, Rotoflex was a pioneer in engineering a solution with 100% inspection, counting and slitting of labels for the pharmaceutical and security market segments,” comments Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex director of engineering and service.
“The new Security Series further revolutionizes pharmaceutical and compliance label finishing with incorporation of the latest in servo technology for ultimate control
and automation, and new software developments that support both a standard and
pharma/security mode with the push of a button, making it truly a multi-purpose
machine. Our application design team has worked closely with pharmaceutical
customers to ensure the Security Series complies with the most demanding and
unique security inspection requirements, and is the preferred solution for increasing compliance demands.”

The Security Series is Rotoflex’s third new product release in the last three months, following the previously announced HSI horizontal slitter-rewinder and Vericut3 for digital label finishing, reconfirming the company’s commitment to Business Responsive Technology, innovation and design leadership.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
