Precision, value and user-friendly operation for booklet labels
A growing need for booklet labels, in particular from three industries – pharmaceutical, agrochemical and the food industry – is one of the issues faced by European printers and label producers. The space-saving solution enables companies to cram 20 pages of information into a tiny booklet. This means precision and quality are fundamental. Robos GmbH & Co.KG located in Kornwestheim has been producing high-quality labels of countless types for all industry sectors since 1960. Once again, this leading German company has chosen a solution from Prati to ensure the best possible combination of quality and ease-of-use to deliver premium booklet labels to their demanding customers.
VEGAplus BKL - an investment in excellence
Supported by Nilpeter GmbH, Prati distributors in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Robos opted for the VEGAplus BKL advanced offline booklet maker. The decision to select the excellence of this solution is due to the advantages in terms of clean processing, ease-of-use for multiple operators, fast set-up requirements and above all the premium quality ensured by the accurate tension and register control. Furthermore, the patented lamination unit implements the correct curvature for the finished booklet keeping the base label at full size. Precisely the level of quality Robos needs to satisfy demanding customers from the pharma industry.
Enhanced productivity through high processing speeds and fast changeover times
Running at 60 metres/min, the VEGAplus BKL installed at the Robos factory is handling a variety of needs including the production of booklet labels with a width of 300 mm, and the speedy switchover times between jobs is improving overall productivity. When working in conjunction with Saturn BKL, the VEGAplus BKL first produces the booklets and leaves the inspection, counting and finishing to the Saturn BKL, making the joint processing pair of machines a complete solution.
Thorsten Saathoff of Nilpeter GmbH commented: “Shortly after installing the VEGAplus LF 330 BKL solution, Robos appreciated the performance and quality standards. With a working width of up to 330 mm, and a maximum processing speed of 75 metres/min, all current requirements were met and the customer was able to deliver first-class booklet labels, also thanks to Saturn BKL, Prati’s slitter inspection rewinder fitted with inspection cameras and running together with the VEGAplus.”
