Webtech Labels orders Grafotronic Pharma Re-Inspection Machine at Labelexpo Europe

After more than a dozen unidirectional label slitter/ rewinders with inspection systems, comes the next step forward for Webtech Labels. During the recently concluded Labelexpo Europe 2013 at Brussels, Webtech signed an order for a Grafotronic Pharma 380 R High Speed Inspection & Re-Inspection Machine which is the latest and niche offering from the Grafotronic stable.

The R-Series, which can be customized as per the user needs for different modules, is a horizontal inspection machine concept with bi-directional web movement that brings 100% inspection to a new level of productivity and user friendliness. The focal point of this equipment is the linear servo buffer which facilitates re-inspection and consequently delivery of truly 100% inspected rolls.

“Adapting to the latest trends in the label industry and investing into the most modern technologies has been our forte. Re-inspection is a unique concept which we believe will further add value to our stringent quality controls especially for the 100% inspection of pharmaceutical labels,” says Amar B. Chhajed, Managing Director, Webtech Labels Pvt. Ltd.
