A story of speed, control and modularity: Pilot Italia SPA goes for the PRATI VEGAplus LF530 label finishing system
Pilot Italia SpA, has been leading the sector of self-adhesive finishing for 35 years and has recently opened its new 20 thousand square metre plant in Cornate D'Adda (MB). This new production site will allow Pilot Italia to work more efficiently, thanks to the rationalization of the processes, which previously were split over two plants.
For the occasion the firm purchased two important new production units: a 520 mm offset press line and a PRATI VEGAplus LF530 inspection machine. These two units will increase the company's production capacity as well as cut down on waste.
As the firm's sales manager Andrea Vimercati explained, this choice is the best way to respond to those needs involving speed in processing and work control: "we particularly appreciate this machine because of its processing speed, and the automatic turret rewinder, a feature that is indispensable for keeping up with the speed of the offset machine".
In Pilot Italia the VEGAplus LF530 unit (for widths of up to 530 mm) cuts and rewinds large multiple pre-printed reels, creating smaller reels in the most rigorous way possible. The full digital inspection plays a fundamental role because it immediately identifies the defective labels and stops the machine in a precise way and places the errors in the right position. In addition to paper labels, the VEGAplus LF530 platform also produces plastic labels, unsupported filmic materials, multilayers and alu foils. Another important benefit encouraged Pilot Italia to choose the PRATI VEGAplus LF530 machine: its Modular Concept Design. It is possible to configure the machine according to any individual need thanks to the several modules which work independently.
To this regard Pilot Italia's sales managers went on to confirm: "there is another feature that makes this machine unique and innovative: the fact that it is flexible in its assembly components thus you can install a die cutting unit, or an inkjet device for numbering the labels or even the flexo printing units".
