An Omega HSR slitter rewinder has been sold through Nilpeter to Dubai-based Raqam International.

AB Graphic International has announced the sale of an Omega HSR slitter rewinder to Dubai-based Raqam International. The 430mm wide model was sold through Nilpeter Middle East, and follows quickly after the latter’s appointment as distributor for AB Graphic International in the Middle East. The sale also includes a 330mm wide Vectra ECTR turret rewinder.

“We are delighted with this kick start sale under our new cooperation with Nilpeter Middle East,” says Matthew Burton of AB Graphic International. “The HSR on order will be equipped with our Fleyevision, 100% print face inspection system. This comprises an intelligent camera that replaces traditional missing label detection while also picking up matrix errors and major registration shifts. The Vectra 330 is equipped with core loader, bowl feeder and core and tail gluing and is suitable for running 76mm and 25mm mandrels

“I am looking forward to the new installation adds Kalid Shah of Raqam International. The new slitter rewinder with camera system will give me greater quality control and the Vectra turret rewinder will allow me to convert non-stop at the end of press, effectively by-passing the finishing department on some jobs.” 

“We are delighted with this first sale in Middle East,” says Shyam Babu of Nilpeter. “AB Graphic International offers a wide range of finishing equipment that is a perfect combination with ours. We wish Raqam International every success.”

The HSR is a high speed slitter inspection rewinder that benefits from larger unwind/rewind diameters and runs at speeds up to 300mt/min. Available in web widths of 330mm. 430mm and 530mm the HSR is equipped for 800mm unwind and 600mm rewind diameters. The ETCR is available in 330,410 and 510mm widths and is capable of speeds up to 150mt/min depending on mandrel size.
