Baumgarten adds second Rotocontrol RSC

January 26, 2012

Features of the machine include dual rewind capacity, tension controls and a vacuum splice table.

Rotocontrol has announced the sale of a second RSC slitter/rewinder inspection machine to Baumgarten, a label printer based in Latin America. The order was placed after an on-site visit from Michael Aengenvoort, business development manager for Rotocontrol, and Marcelo Zandomenico of MZ Maquinas, the Rotocontrol agent for Brazil.

"We are extremely pleased with the production results from our first Rotocontrol RSC slitter/rewinder," says Ronaldo Baumgarten Jr., chairman of Baumgarten. "Rotocontrol delivered a high quality technology finishing machine and follow on support that was promised. We look forward to further production benefits from our second Rotocontrol finishing machine investment."

Baumgarten purchased their second RSC slitter/rewinder 440mm web width inspection machine with dual rewind capacity up to 700mm and tension control from 100% servo Bosch Rexroth drives, which the company says enables them to produce shrink sleeve material efficiently and at high speeds. The company also ordered a vacuum splice table option, which allows for the automatic placement of mill-splice/flags, matrix/missing labels and vision-detected defects right on the vertical inspection plate/waste rewind for reworking. The machine is also equipped for a Nikka Research Vision System.
