“We launched the HSR at Labelexpo Europe where the design concept and high performance were very well received,” says Tony Bell, sales director. “We are delighted at the level of acceptance and the number of machines sold worldwide since the show.”

Options for the HSR include Flytec 100 percent print face camera inspection, missing label detection, flag and splice detection, crush or razor knife slitting, rotary diecutting, bulk waste rewinder and motorized reel lifting.
