Daco Solutions launches inspection slitter rewinder at Labelexpo Europe 2023 – Stand 4A53

UK converting equipment manufacturer Daco Solutions will launch its SRV350 inspection slitter rewinder at Labelexpo Europe 2023.  The servo-driven machine features an inspection system from Nikka, closed-loop unwind tension control, and a fully automatic slitting unit with servo-driven positioning of the knives. It runs at speeds of up to 300m/min with a 350mm web width and 800mm unwind diameter. An optional accumulator can be added, so any labels replaced on the web will pass back underneath the camera to ensure 100 percent inspection. 

‘This is our highest-specification machine in our slitter rewinder portfolio,’ said Daco’s sales manager Mark Laurence. ‘We have had great success over the years with our more economical models, but we were keen to expand our product range and be able to offer high quality equipment to even the biggest label converters. Adding an inspection system greatly reduces waste and guarantees a high-quality output. A version of the machine with a three-spindle semi-automatic turret, the PLR-V model, is already available and has sold steadily over recent years.’ 

Also on display in Brussels will be Daco’s PLD350 semi-automatic turret rewinder for plain label production and a PLR430 semi-automatic turret rewinder for slitting with integrated 1m unwind with roll lift.

Co-creation, collaboration, and commitment – a FESPA reflection by Axel Stuhlreiter

In these post Coronavirus times, all eyes turn to major industry events so we can try to draw conclusions about the prevailing mood and levels of confidence. Well, if this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo in Munich is a good barometer, we have cause for optimism. The appetite for meeting, greeting, and yes investing was palpable along the thronged aisles and stands.

On the Ricoh, textile-oriented, stand, the atmosphere was as upbeat as anywhere. Throughout the four days last week, there was a steady stream of visitors – textile creatives and other specialists, Print Service Providers, partners, journalists, and analysts keen on seeing for themselves how Ricoh’s offer to the garment printing industry is evolving through both Direct to Garment and Direct to Film solutions. 

We were delighted to demonstrate a range of solutions. Some established, some brand new, and welcomed all the constructive feedback. Co-creation is one of our guiding principles. It wasn’t just DTG and DTF though as there were many conversations about Ricoh’s inkjet print head expertise and how it could enhance manufacturers’ production capabilities. Our partners Fruit of the Loom and Russell Athletic made Ricoh’s booth a truly collaborative venture. 

It was very clear that these brands’ all-encompassing commitment to sustainable garment production echoed our own environmental philosophy. And that the partnership is founded firmly on shared values. 

Perhaps though what will live longest in memories will be our celebrated Manga artist, Uchida, painting, over the course of the show, a wonderful Manga scene. She attracted crowds of onlookers who watched the picture emerge on the three by two metre canvas. Many of them then chose an individualized printed T shirt with their preferred Manga design to take away as a memento. 

So, I and my Ricoh colleagues can now reflect fondly on a great experience at FESPA. It was successful for us but also of course very importantly, it worked for our industry too.
