SPGPrints will present solutions for rotary screen printing workflow for label and packaging applications with its new RSI III rotary screen integration unit taking centre stage on its stand at Labelexpo Europe from 24 September in Brussels.

According to a press statement, the RSI III unit is a fast, cost-effective way of applying value-adding functional and visual effects in a single pass at speeds up to 150m/min (492fpm). The unit is particularly suited for adding white ink of the highest opacity for no-label look applications, creative spot and flood varnishes, metallic effects, and, opaque colours for brand designs. Tactile effects including raised lettering and Braille (up to 250 microns) can be applied in an uninterrupted process.

The new module features ergonomic improvements for safety, time-savings and increased productivity. A new long-life web-cleaning scraper automatically removes ink splashes from the web after stoppages or when operating in slow-rotation mode. This enables thorough drying of the substrate while minimizing contamination of the rollers and usable print. A new display screen offers rich viewing angles, reducing the amount of movement required for the operator to obtain clear, accurate readings.
