AB Graphic International has announced the development of the Omega HSR, a high speed slitter inspection rewinder that benefits from larger unwind/rewind diameters and runs at speeds up to 400m/m (1,312 fpm).

Available in web widths of 330mm (13”), 430mm (17”) and 530mm (21”), the HSR is equipped for 800mm (148”) unwind and 610mm (24”) rewind diameters.

“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.
