Ontario-based Rotoflex has debuted the Rotoflex DF3, a configurable offline digital finishing and converting solution designed to complement digital, non-hybrid label presses without inline converting functionality. As well, the DF3 intends to eliminate the need for single-application embellishment units.

Manohar Dhugga, VP of Operations, Rotoflex says the system is a “smart replacement” for legacy digital converting systems due to its configurability. “The DF3 comes with a rail option that opens a lot of doors when you add it to your configuration.” The rail enables lamination, foil decoration, rotary screen (both conventional or UV digital alternatives), advanced waste removal features and turnbars.

Suitable for businesses that currently operate roll-to-roll digital label presses, the DF3 delivers capabilities of both full and semi-rotary diecutting and can accommodate a range of repeat sizes and existing investments in tooling. Die changeovers can be achieved in 30 seconds or less, Rotoflex says. Additional, the DF3 boasts a converting and finishing speed of 1000 fpm.

“There was a significant gap in the market for an offline solution to support brand requirements. This machine hits all the key needs: value-add finishes, high speeds, and options for any business challenge,” says Kevin Gourlay, Senior Vice President, Rotoflex.

The Rotoflex DF3 is available for demonstrations at the company’s headquarters in Mississauga, Ont.
