TS Converting Equipment Ltd (Elite Cameron) and Focus Label Machinery Ltd Launch New Flexo’ Machine With Inline Hot Melt Coating
UK based TS Converting Equipment Ltd / Elite Cameron has partnered with Focus Label Machinery to develop a range of machines for the manufacture of Labels, Tapes, and Tamper Evident Security products.
The HM300 FLX is said to have the ability to Print on a liner, apply a release coating, flip the web over between any of the stations, hot melt coat, laminate in a face stock if required, 4C print, die-cut, slit and rewind all in one pass.
The modular format of the machine can be configured to provide a great mix of capabilities for customers. It eliminates the need to purchase pre-release coated or treated liners and combines multiple operations for inline manufacture of finished products.
The Flexo’ units can be used for printing and the application of a wide variety of UV curable release coatings. The machine utilizes the latest Rhino GEW UV system, Double-sided Vetaphone corona treater, and Proact web cleaner.
The coating module incorporates Valco Melton coating equipment, now standard issue on the full range of Elite Cameron Hot Melt Coaters. The head accurately applies stripes or full width, streak-free coating of HM adhesives. The coat weight is monitored and displayed continuously on an NDC measurement system.
This totally integrated solution is controlled using a Schneider PLC, with servo drives for perfect registration and tension control throughout.
“We partnered with Focus to deliver this first machine to a UK based customer” comments Tim Self, of TS Converting, “We are both privately owned businesses with a common goal to develop cutting edge technology for a worldwide base of customers”
“We have known each other for many years working in different but associated industries” comments David Lee Director of Focus “We have enjoyed working with the team at TS Converting and have delivered a truly integrated solution for the industry. We are already working on other applications together and feel this is the beginning of a close and mutually beneficial relationship”
