Worldwide shipments of inspection/rewind machines were significant
Rotoflex VSI with GenesisRotoflex celebrated a successful end to 2010, logging 16 inspection/rewind machine shipments in December alone. The US-manufactured machines were destined for a variety of customers worldwide including North and South America, Europe, Asia and Africa, and consisted of a range of popular models.
“Demand for our equipment continues to increase,” states Kevin Gourlay, worldwide sales manager for the brand. “With the broadest finishing product line available, we find Rotoflex machines are able to satisfy almost any application demand. We have been lucky to work with some really innovative customers who utilize our equipment to do things that amaze even us!”
Increased demand for the machines is directly related to recent improvements, specifically the implementation of the Genesis advanced control system. This system, exclusive to Rotoflex equipment, puts the converter in control, allowing more effective management of speed, workflow and roll quality in their operation. The 100% matrix and missing label detection, fast, accurate fault recognition and placement, and simple set-up and operation are necessary for today’s converting demands. In addition new models being outfitted with the Genesis system, the MAX aftermarket service and support team is keeping busy upgrading existing installations to the new control system as well.
Adds Gourlay, “We are looking to 2011 as another exciting year for Rotoflex, with key product line updates offering converters even more flexibility and capability.”
