Marco Aengenvoort, managing director for Rotocontrol, a manufacturer of inspection, slitting, rewinding and diecutting finishing machines for the narrow web industry, reported that January was a record month for new orders for Rotocontrol machines being released to the production floor. In response, manufacturing and technical staff was increased to meet the current demand in booked and anticipated order activity in the coming months.
Machines currently being manufactured include the RSC Series slitter rewinder inspection machines, RSD Series diecutting/slitting rewinding machines, and the recently introduced EDM200 Series over-printing press. These machines will fulfill customer orders received from Germany, Finland, South Africa, Italy, France, Spain, and Turkey.
“Since our product demonstrations at Labelexpo Europe, the customer orders that followed are extremely positive,” says Aengenvoort. “The increased momentum is reflected in our current production floor which will continue to grow this coming year. Also evident in the mix of machines ordered by customers, is our ability to also build products for unique and custom application requests.”
Rotocontrol machines are manufactured in Ahrensburg, Germany, where the company’s headquarters are also located.
