“The use of technology to continuously improve our productivity is a key differentiator for DLS in the market,” says DLS CEO Jim Kersten. “We have invested heavily in equipment to increase the speed, quality and consistency of our products without the need for additional personnel which, after materials, represents our second largest cost of manufacturing. This savings enables our distributors to provide lower cost options to their end-user customers,” continues Kersten. “Our new, highly automated turrets are proving to fit this model perfectly.”
According to Kersten, the benefits of DLS's new automatic turret rewinders from AB Graphic include:
- Allowing short length, lower quantity rolls to be produced with great efficiency.
- Cores, including small diameter ones, are automatically applied the rewind shaft without manual intervention, reducing production costs.
- Faster turret cycle times allow shorter length rolls to be run at higher production speeds for maximum efficiency.
- In-line roll sealing such as low-tack glue and removable closure labels provide multiple options to meet specific customer application needs.
