One of the leading narrow web trade houses, Aztec Label, is installing AccuStrike anvils for each of the three Nilpeter FB presses at its production facility in Kidderminster, as part of an ongoing program of investment in production efficiency.
The new equipment is Rotometrics’ answer to die wear and the problems posed by some of today’s tricky filmic substrates. Founded in 1993 by Colin Le Gresley and now employing 25 staff, the company offers label printing in up to 10 colours on its dual water-based/UV press lines.
"The depth of knowledge at Rotometrics is second to none – they even rebuilt a gear-train on a print cylinder for us a few years back, and we now send all of our operators on their training courses, so they understand the science behind the technology, and learn good tool management skills,’ he explained.
