TOWARDS the end of 2021, ROTOCONTROL partnered with ROTOCON, Domino Digital Printing Solutions, EyeC, and Phoseon to host a two-day open house at its facility in Siek, Germany.

The event featured a live demonstration of an integrated end-to-end digital inkjet hybrid solution with the ROTOCONTROL DT 2.0 label finishing machine, Domino’s N610i label press, the EyeC ProofRunner Web inline inspection system, and Phoseon’s Nexus ONE UV LED curing solution.

‘We were pleased to welcome over 60 delegates during our two-day open house, including customers, suppliers and ROTOCONTROL partners,’ says MD Marco Aengenvoort.

Features of the running hybrid solution, which combines the productivity of flexo printing with the flexibility offered by rapid job change digital technology, included multiple die-cutting stations, rotary flexo and flatbed screen printing units, up to seven colours including opaque white, with 600dpi native print resolution, The N610i integration module incorporates Domino’s i-Tech intelligent technology productivity features for enhanced flexibility and reliability.

Other capabilities delegates were shown included lamination, cold foiling, hot stamping, label inspection with 100% outgoing quality control, corona treatment, UV LED curing, and a small roll programmable auto turret winding machine.

Two ROTOCON ECOLINE RSI label finishing machines were also showcased during the open house featuring the Domino K600i inkjet printer for barcode and QR code printing, the Phoseon FJ240 high dose UV LED curing solution, and the EyeC ProofRunner Web inspection system including variable code reading.

Also demonstrated was the EyeC Quality Manager system, which allows data automatically exported from the press inspection system to be evaluated before releasing it to the rewinder, avoiding unnecessary stops. The EyeC Finishing Manager software controlling the rewinder then uses the released data to automatically stop and place the defect when the operator needs to remove faulty material.

Two other machines in the demo showroom were the RCF, a high-quality slitting machine that can be custom-built with a range of options for the finishing of blank labels, multilayer labels, blister foils, RFID smart tickets/labels and more, and the advanced RSC 2.0 inspection slitter/rewinder machine. Punching and slitting modules from EMT were on display and Actega’s coatings were also presented providing functional, visual and haptic effects for one-sided or two-sided finishing.

During the open house, an in-depth video of the end-to-end digital inkjet hybrid solution and of the two ECOLINE RSI label finishing machines was filmed. Live drone footage of the event was also captured.

Marco Aengenvoort ROTOCONTROL MD‘This video footage was shared with several registrants who, unfortunately, had to cancel at the last minute due to the coronavirus situation. However, our demo centre is open for anyone who wants an on-site or virtual demonstration of our finishing machines,’ comments Marco.

The hybrid solution with the ROTOCONTROL DT 2.0 label finishing machine and Domino’s N610i label press has been sold and shipped to the United States. The replacement demo unit is expected to be available in early 2022.
