Arpeco to market Rotoworx converting equipment

January 9, 2007

Arpeco, of Cherry Hill, NJ, USA, and PAT Technologies of Montreal, Canada, have formed an alliance that will enable Arpeco to offer the Rotoworx line of expandable and reconfigurable modular diecutting and converting systems.

The Rotoworx system is a first combination digital UV coater and semi-rotary diecutting and converting system. Complementing a digital press, the Rotoworx system offers the ability to perform flood or spot coating, textures and special effects, requiring only a digital file. No plates are required. The system can also be configured to perform many converting functions including through-cut onto a conveyor.
Modules can be run independently as stand alone machines or in sequence to form a multiple stage finishing line. This also allows machines to be expanded in the field; clients can add modules after initial installation to meet their changing requirements. The modules are tension isolated and re-register independently so any number can be run in sequence to accommodate complex finishing lines. Modules within a machine can be run in any combination of rotary and/or semi-rotary mode.
