ASL Print FX of Vaughan, Ontario, installed a Rotocontrol RSD Series system for label slitting, rewinding and finishing.
The RSD series from Rotocontrol is a modular machine based on a servo S-Drive die-cutting station with 750 mm unwind, cartridge shear/razor slitting and rewind. The system is available with turret rewinders, multiple die stations and a line of finishing options like flexo and lamination stations.
A key feature on the ASL Print FX system includes the integration capability for a RHINO inline hot foil embossing unit from Pantec GS Systems, for applying hot foil on textured paper. ASL Print FX also received a second retrofit system from Rotocontrol with the addition of cold foil and varnishing capabilities.
