Aztech, Power Forward form business venture
Aztech Converting Systems of Tempe, AZ, USA, and Power Forward Inc. of Toronto, ON, Canada, have formed a venture that will manufacture and market a line of equipment for converters in the extended content (ECL) and coupon label markets.
The equipment line will consist of the Aztech Servo Re-Register DieMaster and the array of products offered by Power Forward, most notably the PowerAttach (PF204) booklet applicator and the PowerStick continuous motion inline label applicators.
“This venture will clearly afford converters producing value added labels and coupon/piggyback labels an affordable and accurate way of manufacturing ECL labels for the customers requiring them,” says André Beaudoin, national sales manager for Aztech. “It will also afford those converters farming out their work an easy and cost effective way to bring the work in house and grow that portion of their business.”
Traditionally this has been done by the interface of a new technology onsert unit being retrofitted onto an older piece of equipment, Beaudoin says. “The issue becomes a costly endeavor due to the conflict of old and new capability being smashed together. The usual result is that the older press will never hold the tolerances that the newer onserter is asking it to maintain as the booklet and the registration of the diecut need to be precise.”
