PPMA 2017 PREVIEW: New RF Auto codes troublesome ‘lift-the-flap’ sleeves with ease
Responding to the coding and handling challenges of the latest ‘lift-the-flap’ style luxury pack sleeve, Rotech will launch its new off-line RF Auto sleeve and carton friction feeder at PPMA 2017.
This offline sleeve coding solution for overprinting essential information, such as batch numbers and use-by dates, accurately handles the latest cardboard watch sleeves which vary in thickness due to the new addition of an informational flap incorporated into the sleeve.
Without any human intervention, the RF Auto stack-to-stack feeder’s patented auto-gate feature automatically adjusts to accommodate the varying thickness of each flat pack to boost coding productivity and eliminate set-up time and sleeve waste, which could amount to £20k per annum alone. The new auto-gate function targets manufacturers who find that increasingly varied packaging styles can present a challenge for conventional coding systems, minimising set-up downtime and eliminating waste packaging. Come and see it in action on Stand A37 at PPMA 2017.
