Business is better when you enjoy peace of mind
Founded in 1996 Sextant Étiquettes is a modern label manufacturer situated in central eastern France, in Montagny, close to Lyons. A dynamic company, providing top quality labels to local, national and international customers, in over 25 years’ activity, the company has always placed quality as a key priority and means of staying ahead of the competition. “Responding to your needs without leaving anything to chance” is the company motto and this is exactly how Prati was able to reassure Sextant Étiquettes thanks to its track record of reliability and high-tech quality. Assisted by official distributor APGraphics, run by Anne and Patrick Fraenkel, always ready to play a key role in ensuring Prati’s success on the French market, Prati recently installed their glueless turret rewinder STARPlus.
STARPlus – the new generation non-stop glueless turret rewinder
Conceived to work non-stop and in line with any narrow web press, STARPlus is the perfect choice for label manufacturers looking for problem-free repeatability, reliability and precision, even in the case of tranverse perforations, the most common type found in glueless processing. Based on a servo-motor system which automatically regulates rewinding tension, STARPlus ensures high productivity as well as remarkable accuracy. Featuring Prati’s glueless hooking technology, excellent cleanliness is obtained. This saves on consumables leading to economic advantages; STARPlus also lowers energy consumption by up to 40% compared to comparable products. Fast format changes, flexibility and ease of use make STARPlus a winning investment.
Excellent service standards and convincing technology
Despite the quality build of all equipment leaving the factory in Faenza, Sextant Étiquettes chose STARPlus for a host of benefits ranging from accuracy to high productivity.
Director of Sextant Étiquettes, Augustin Monroe commented: “After taking a good look around on the market, we were won over by the robust concept of Prati’s turret rewinder. Furthermore we were reassured by the proximity of both the French and Italian after-sales outfits and also by the absence of a Hotmelt system or any other glue. We were very impressed when we visited the factory in Faenza and the demonstration of the machine was equally impressive.”
