Cracking the fundamentals of a great partnership: trust and reliability

Factory manager, Collin Naidoo, and co-owner, Ravi Pillay, are pleased with the RDF 330 servo-driven digital label converting and finishing system, with its full-rotary flexo print unit, unwind/rewind unit, waste rewind, web guide unit, slitting unit, cold foil and lamination/delamination module, and die-cutting station. They praise the quality results when cold foiling and laminating.

Winning trio in the slitting and rewinding department. Ease of operation of the Ecoline RSI 430 and two RSI 330 slitting, inspection & rewinder systems is key in maximising quality and uptime.SHARING the philosophy of providing premium quality, outstanding service and fast delivery times, Durban-based GTV Label Master has chosen Rotocon as a partner for its flexible dies, tooling, rewinding and finishing machines.

For 20 years, brothers Ravi, Ricky and Vernon Pillay have been managing GTV Label Master according to their father Thangvaloo’s founding principles of good printing practices and uncompromising quality, supplying labels to lubricant, chemical, cigarette and food sector customers around the country.

The company has enjoyed a 28-year relationship with Rotocon’s founder, Michael Aengenvoort, in terms of purchasing of flexible dies, tooling, rewinding and finishing machines, and, according to Ravi Pillay, this strong personal relationship is strengthened by the provision of outstanding technical back-up and service.

‘We’ve also built up a strong relationship and understanding with Rotocon sales director, Pascal Aengenvoort. His local support team provides excellent service and if there’s a problem, a technician is generally on our production floor within an hour,’ Ravi reports. ‘Additionally, we’ve come to rely on Pascal’s specifying expertise, to ensure we always invest in customised, fit-for-purpose equipment that can do the job efficiently,’ he adds.

Having realised the efficiency and reliability of Rotocon’s dies and small rewinders, and that they could rely on great service levels and the mutually-beneficial partnership created, the brothers have now purchased four more machines and retrofitted UV LED curing systems on two presses.
