Rotocontrol partners with AVT at Labelexpo Americas

Rotocontrol, a manufacturer of leading-edge slitter/rewinder inspection machines, today announced their participation in the AVT stand at the recently held Labelexpo Americas. Showcased at the show with live printed label material demonstrations was the Rotocontrol RSP-V series pharmaceutical finishing machine equipped with the AVT Helios II automatic inspection station.
The Rotocontrol RSP-V (vertical) series machine is designed for compliance with the most demanding security label inspection and finishing applications. It incorporates a fully integrated 100% vision inspection system, such as the AVT Helios II, which stops the machine when a fault is detected prior to slitting or other post-inspection operations. Once the fault is corrected, the web is rewound back to where the fault was detected onto a high capacity rewind for re-inspection prior to slitting for 100% compliance requirements.

AVT's Helios is a superior line of automatic 100% print inspection solutions designed exclusively for labels and narrow web printing. Helios II can be seamlessly integrated into rewinder/finishing equipment to create a designated automatic inspection station for post print processes. A highly-reliable, market-proven solution, Helios II has been successfully installed worldwide on hundreds of presses and rewinders. Quickly and easily integrating on any press or rewinder for online quality assurance and process control, Helios II supports AVT's large and far-reaching global install base.

Marco Aengenvoort, Managing Director of Rotocontrol comments: "It was an honour to participate at Labelexpo Americas once again in the AVT stand, and to demonstrate our RSP-V pharmaceutical finishing technology with the AVT Helios II automatic 100% print inspection solution. Our long-standing partnership with AVT, which dates back to the inception of Rotocontrol, has been instrumental in providing finishing equipment with complementary and innovative technologies that benefit narrow web printers and converters."
