Rotoflex celebrated a successful end to 2010, logging 16 inspection/rewind machine shipments in December alone, reports Kevin Gourlay, worldwide sales manager for the brand. The US-manufactured machines were destined for customers in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, and consisted of a range of models.
“Demand for our equipment continues to increase,” says Gourlay. “With the broadest finishing product line available, we find Rotoflex machines are able to satisfy almost any application demand. We have been lucky to work with some really innovative customers who utilize our equipment to do things that amaze even us."
Gourlay credits the increased demand to recent improvements, specifically the implementation of the Genesis advanced control system. The system puts converters in control, he says, allowing more effective management of speed, workflow and roll quality in their operations.
Rotoflex, which has more than 4,500 installations around the world, is a brand of Mark Andy Inc., Chesterfield, MO, USA.
