Coastal Labels installs Rotocontrol EDM200 over-printing press

Rotocontrol has recently announced another successful installation of the EDM200 Over-printing Press at Coastal Labels, a Label Converter located in Cape Town.  This latest installation marks the third EDM200 machine sold into this picturesque region of South Africa.  Onsite during the installation was Pascal Aengenvoort, Director from Rototec, the local Agent for Rotocontrol throughout South Africa.

Marius Sullwald, Coastal Labels Managing Director, was astounded with the speed and ease of the machine installation. "Within two hours we were running our first print job.  The EDM200 provides Coastal Labels leading edge technology to efficiently deliver superior quality pressure sensitive labels to our customers."  In addition to Rotocontrol machines, Rototec is also a key Tooling supplier for Coastal Labels.

Operating since 1986, Coastal Labels offers complete in-house service from design to printing of Pressure Sensitive labels.  Also available are A4 pre-cut labels (laser or inkjet), blank labels, barcode labels, price marking applicators and a variety of products for the printing and textile industries.

The EDM200 is the world's first ever designed semi-rotary, servo-driven UV-flexo machine, using sleeve technology for both print and anilox cylinders, and working with chambered doctor blade technology. The machine is designed to work mainly as an over-printing machine and has been specifically developed to provide very economic production of short-run and fast turnaround for labels, tickets and tags.  At a cost-effective price point, the EDM200 is an attractive solution for unique production runs.
