ECOLINES tie up technology & affordability

ROTOCON launched the ECOLINE range to meet your technology investment needs of carefully balancing the highest possible specifications with competitive pricing.

Each ECOLINE label finishing and printing system has a compact footprint, easy-to-use control panel and open machine design to maximise operator friendliness. A modem for remote fault finding and maintenance allows ROTOCON to respond quickly to your operators’ software and drive-related queries.

The ECOLINE range is built according to ROTOCON’s stringent quality specifications – solid, vibration-free construction and the latest technology – plus cost-efficiency needs.

We have commissioned these customisable models beyond South Africa’s borders in Mauritius, Europe, Australia and the US.

ECOLINE PRO CLEAN ANILOX ROLLER CLEANER

This ultrasonic anilox roller cleaner efficiently and quickly removes all types of inks and dirt from any line count anilox cells. It’s equipped with a roller swivelling wheel and constant temperature heating system, which reduces any ‘hot spots’ in the liquid that can create high intensity power levels and potentially damage components.

Ultrasonic cleaning converts electric energy into kinetic energy, without generating dust and sewage, making it a more environmentally-friendly method that requires a cleaning fluid for easier dirt removal from micro holes.

Anilox roller length: 100-450mm
Quantity of vibrators: 16
Temperature control range: 30-100°C
Ultrasonic power source: 20A/220V
Electric heater power: 2.6KW
Cleanser working frequency: 40kHz
Rinsing tank length: 450mm
Rinsing tank width: 450mm
Capacity: 40 litres

ECOLINE PRO MOUNT PLATEMOUNTER

An entry-level machine designed to tick three boxes: price ratio, ease of operation, plus maximum precision and highly repeatable accuracy for operators manually mounting printing plates. The 650-line camera reaches a 70 times amplification ratio – presenting clear, bright images that substantially improve plate mounting precision – via a 482.6mm high-resolution display screen.

Max plate cylinder length: 600mm
Max plate cylinder diameter: 800mm
Voltage: 220V (one-phase, 50-60Hz)
