Rotoflex, a world leader in inspection, slitting, rewinding and die cutting equipment has released the new HSI slitter rewinder designed for high volume label slitting, inspection and rewinding. Built with the extreme ruggedness and reliability as its flagship VSI vertical design series, the HSI offers label converters an operator-friendly horizontal configuration.
Features of the new HSI include 330 and 440mm web widths, 1000 fpm running speed, extra-large inspection table, ergonomic 37 inch (940mm) high editing area, easily accessible slitting module, a straightforward web path and conveniently located finished roll rewind location. With end-to-end servo control design, the HSI also features the Rotoflex URC 2.0 proprietary control system with simple menus and an intuitive interface, giving operators the ability to monitor all functions from a single screen.
The small footprint HSI is configurable for a variety of vision inspection solutions and offers a range of options, such as the new biometric (fingerprint) authentication for operator access and the Rotoflex exclusive Report Management System (RMS). With the powerful RMS tool, real-time production data is collected from multiple finishing machines to a single interface, which can be accessed remotely via computer or handheld device. RMS generates a variety of detailed, customizable reports on performance variables such as run time, defects, production volume and scrap generation, as well as compares outputs of multiple machines.
Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex director of engineering and service, comments: “Designed with the proven robust construction of our successful VSI series, the HSI is an advantageous solution for converters preferring a horizontal slitting inspection configuration in their off-line finishing machines. The HSI is one of many new Business Responsive Technologies to be unveiled in the next few months, supporting our commitment to deliver high quality, innovative solutions that drive customer profitability.”
