Multi-ply products boost
for German label converter
To meet increased sales of multi-ply promotional labels, Rolf Ritter GmbH recently installed its fourth MPS UV flexo press, an EF 410 model. The servo-driven configuration includes 10 flexo units and a track-mounted rotary screen module. A laminator with register control aids the production of glue-free areas, adhesive spots and the varied opening or resealing perforations required for extended-text and other multilayer products. Main applications include brand promotions, multilingual product information and usage instructions.
The company is one of Germany’s leading PSA producers and is located in Enger in Westphalia. It was founded more than 35 years ago and now trades under the slogan “We make ideas stick”. Since May 2006 its major shareholder has been Rako-Etiketten GmbH. Products include film sleeves, RFID labels and holographic labels using combinations of letterpress, flatbed screen printing, conventional and UV flexo, offset, and full-color digital printing.
