Rotoflex (St. Louis, Missouri), an industry leader in inspection, slitting, rewinding and die-cutting equipment, has released Vericut3, the next generation of its off-line finishing solution for digital and conventional printed web. With a completely redesigned platform, the new Vericut3 is 100% servo-driven for precise tension control and flexibility – from unwind to rewind and all print and die-cut units in between – including the matrix removal unit. Its motorized roll lift, iURC 2.0 proprietary control system (featuring the exclusive Report Management System or RMS) and biometric login, all offer advanced operation and control. In addition, the Vericut3 features an efficient webpath for reduced set-up waste, a motorized capstan and optimized operating speeds.
Rotoflex added that “with the most sophisticated motion control technology in the industry, Vericut3 delivers unparalleled accuracy and precision for many off-line applications and processes.” The new design significantly reduces material waste through its automated die-cutter and flexo unit set-up, and addresses the ever-changing inspection rewind requirements to maximize digital workflows, accommodate shorter runs and reduce costs. A variety of optional processes can be configured into Vericut3 such as lamination, hot and cold foil, screen and coatings.
“We built upon our extensive experience in developing digital finishing machines and re-engineered the Vericut to optimize control and performance at every level,” said Manohar Dhugga, Rotoflex Director of Engineering and Service. “With advanced automation, an ergonomic and modular platform design, and extreme flexibility to accommodate a wide range of repeat sizes in continuous or semi-rotary mode, Vericut3 is a premium solution for today’s growing finishing requirements,” he added.
