TO keep abreast with production, market trends and the latest technological developments, Johannesburg-based JMB Labels recently invested in an MPS EFS 430 flexo press and a Rotocon Ecoline RSI 430 slitting, inspection and rewinding system.
JMB Labels co-owner, Aslam Monia, remarks that the company is continuously growing with its customer base to provide them with top-quality products. It has been ably supported in this mission by suppliers such as Rotocon, who offer the perfect combination of state-of-the-art machinery and top-class service.
The installation and commissioning of the press and slitter-rewinder took place during April and May and was complemented by training from Rotocon and MPS’ technicians.
Finishing touches with Rotocon
Aslam adds that the purchase of every MPS press is accompanied by a slitter-rewinder from Rotocon to ensure top-quality and diverse finishing requirements. This time JMB Labels chose Rotocon’s Ecoline RSI 430 slitter-rewinder, which has a slitting accuracy of 0.2mm and maximum output of 300m/min.
‘This model has been re-engineered as a fully servo-driven offering and now includes three servo motors instead of two,’ adds Patrick. ‘It’s also user-friendly because of the movable touchscreen console’s self-explanatory navigation tools that are similar to a smartphone’s.’
Aslam commends Rotocon and MPS for their levels of service and support over the years. ‘These partnerships have aided JMB Labels’ tremendous growth. The next step in our journey is expanding our facility to almost three times its current size (740m2) by early next year,’ he enthuses.
