CAPE TOWN, South Africa (November 26, 2020)— German manufacturer Rosas Maschinenbau has appointed ROTOCON as their new distributor in South Africa for their customized high-performance rewinders and equipment for the label industry. ROTOCON has placed the first order for a Cheetah 500 tabletop rewinder.

Rosas Maschinenbau offers a wide range of customized high-performance tabletop rewinder and inspection machines, including:

  • Rosas Maschinenbau GorillaGorilla: hybrid rewinder for booklet labels and thicker material,
  • Gazelle: high-speed bidirectional rewinder for imprinting labels,
  • Hippo: bidirectional rewinder for printing braille codes on labels and booklets,

Under the agreement, all Rosas Maschinenbau machines and equipment will be available through ROTOCON’s headquarters in Cape Town, and branch offices in Johannesburg and Durban.

“The product offering from Rosas Maschinenbau is complementary to our other slitting, rewinding and inspection machines we represent,” said Michael Aengenvoort, ROTOCON director and co-owner. “Their range of economically viable solutions are customizable, adapting to a printer’s unique specifications. Quality, productivity, and sustainability is their philosophy behind each machine they design and build.”

The Rosas machine on order, a Cheetah 500 tabletop rewinder, features two servo motors, splice table, idler roller, inside/outside wrap rewinding, web and winding tension control, integrated job memory, and operates at a speed up to 1600 ft/min (500m/min, depending on substrate) for 0.39 – 10 inch (9.9 – 254mm) thin film.
