Rotocontrol featured the DT-Series 340 (see video) for advanced finishing of digitally preprinted label rolls, the FC-Series 540 fully-automatic turret for rewinding of pressure sensitive self-adhesive labels, and the RSC-Series 440 high-performance, compact, extremely robust label slitter/rewinder.
“I was impressed with Rotocontrol’s live demonstrations on three of their label finishing solutions during Labelexpo,” said Maxwell. “Their proven German engineering in highly customized machines along with a strong backing in manufacturing expertise by their parent company EMT has proven successful at an international level. There is a strong market for Rotocontrol here in Australia and New Zealand.”
