Rotoflex – Highlighting HSI slitter rewinder

Rotoflex showed the HIS slitter rewinder at Labelexpo Americas

USA • Designed for high volume label slitting, inspection and rewinding the extreme rugged HSI offers label converters an operator-friendly horizontal configuration. Featuring end-to-end servo control, web width of 13” or 440”   (330 or 440 mm), up to 1000 fpm (305 m/min) running speed, extra-large inspection table, 37 inch (940mm) high editing area, and easily accessible slitting module, the HSI brings many operational and ergonomic benefits to label converters.

The small footprint HSI is configurable for a variety of vision inspection solutions and offers a range of options, such as the new biometric (fingerprint) authentication for operator access and the Rotoflex exclusive Report Management System (RMS). The HSI also features the URC 2.0 proprietary control system with simple menus and an intuitive interface, giving operators the ability to monitor all functions from a single screen.

Rotoflex rewinders, including the new HSI, are also commonly integrated 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 used to remove large lengths of waste material while maintaining accurate length and label count.
