Rotoflex unveils new Genesis advanced motion control system

September 15, 2010

The Mark Andy division will incorporate Arpeco equipment into its product line.

Rotoflex, the division of Mark Andy that manufactures inspection and rewind equipment, unveiled its most advanced motion control system at Labelexpo. The Genesis is a touch screen system designed with multiple integrated features including variable and multi-shape label inspection, intuitive defect management, advanced missing label and matrix detection, and full compatibility with other in-plant job management systems.

Genesis boasts 300 times faster processing speeds than its URC predecessor. The real-time, high speed processor will handle many critical functions simultaneously without slowing or changing speed of production. The advanced system not only can identify defects within a stream of a single label or image shape, but independent lane configuration provides the converter the ability to run multiple sizes and shapes of labels on one roll, detecting defects regardless of label contour, size or color. Coupled with missing label and matrix detection capabilities, the system provides more consistency and higher quality response through repeatable settings, transferrable to other Rotoflex models in the operation.

"The Genesis control system has dramatically enhanced the performance of Rotoflex equipment," says Kevin Gourlay, Rotoflex worldwide sales manager. "Operators will experience a completely new level of capability with simple, intuitive controls. Converters will find improved waste reduction and increased response time and accuracy."

Mark Andy, which also owns the Arpeco brand of rewinders, says that its MAX service operation will provide service and parts for all existing Arpeco units. The Arpeco Tracker and Tracker Premier are being integrated into the Rotoflex product line.
