Rotocontrol celebrates LeoMat integration

September 18, 2012

Since the acquisition six months ago, eighteen new LeoMat finishing machine orders have been confirmed.

Rotocontrol has announced the successful integration of LeoMat, a major German supplier of processing machines for adhesive labels, foils and paper, since the company acquisition six months ago. Eighteen new LeoMat finishing machine order confirmations have been received including requests for the Digitakt Digital, Booklabel, and Overprinter.

According to the company, the LeoMat Digitakt SFR is a fully modular, versatile finishing machine with a rich standard feature set and a full complement of optional finishing modules designed to complement digital printing operations. Standard with a fully integrated flexo printing station and a semi-rotary die-cutting unit including high accuracy register control, the LeoMat Digitak is suitable for varnishing, diecutting in register, slitting and rewinding of printed or blank labels.

The Booklabel machine produces booklet labels with variable shapes and formats. Featuring modular capability, the Booklabel is available in all current working widths up to 510mm and can be designed with numerous options including a waste paper rewind unit for the automatic winding of marked faulty print, shear and razor knife slitting, roll lifter for diameters up to 1200mm, and numerous other optional features.  

With the Overprinter, the company says texts or symbols can be imprinted to precisely fit on pre-manufactured adhesive labels using flexographic printing. The machine offers reduced setup times with a capability to handle a large variety of material.

Marco Aengenvoort, managing director of Rotocontrol comments, "The LeoMat acquisition has proven to be a success, reflected in the eighteen orders confirmed so far. The Digitakt and Booklet machines are built with Rotocontrol S-Drive technology and control software, providing a complete solution that benefits our customers in various production environments. Rotocontrol finishing machine sales also continue to be strong, as we approach our 125th order confirmation."
