CAPE TOWN, South Africa – Weightron, a supplier of labeling services and industrial weighing equipment in southern Africa, has invested in two ECOLINE machines. An RSI 340 slitter rewinder and RFP 340 8 color LED flexo press were purchased from ROTOCON.

The economical ECOLINE RSI 340 slitter rewinder is a fully servo driven machine with three servo motors, 300m / min flow rate, easy to use control panel and open machine design. The ROTOCON service team successfully installed the RSI at Weightron’s manufacturing facility in Johannesburg at the end of November, and it has been in full production for the finishing of the film ever since.

According to Ashay Sewpersadh, co-owner of Weightron: “It was ROTOCON’s reputation in the market that made our decision to invest in their ECOLINE machines easier. The ECOLINE RSI exceeded our exceptions – our team is particularly impressed with the efficiency and production speed of the rewinder. Each printing unit is driven by a separate servo motor — 14 in total. The printing units are designed for optimal ink transfer and pressure adjustment to ensure crisp printing in high lines, text, line art, solids, adhesives and varnishes.

The LED-UV curing system ensures an improved energy footprint in the short web path, and the printing cylinder is equipped with a water cooling system so that the film material is not affected by drying temperatures UV during printing.

The installation of the ECOLINE RFP flexo press will be handled by the ROTOCON service team shortly.

“Weightron and ROTOCON are two family businesses and are happy to enter into a long term partnership,” said Patrick Aengenvoort, director and co-founder of ROTOCON.
