Roll handling solutions for the label printing industry are as dynamic as it's ever been. Narrow web flex printing is a roll handling solution used by Dotec for small print runs.
Roll handling solutions for Label & narrow web
Multiple roll handling
Flexography is one of the quickly growing printing process used today. Two of the main sectors in flexography are wide web and narrow web flexo printing. Dotec has a total solution specifically designed for handling narrow web rolls.
Since a single roll is too narrow and too light to handle, a multiple roll chuck handles a complete batch at once.
Benefits of roll handling solutions
The biggest time saver and productivity increaser is the Dotec Roll Doffing Trolley (RDT). It has the ability to empty a single shaft with narrow web rolls in one stage, the machine can produce the next batch while the operator safely and ergonomically lifts, turns and palletizes the rolls. Output optimisation, efficiency improvement and working pleasure provided by Dotec, The Friendly LiftAssist.
Depending on several factors, the decision is made whether a rail system or a jib crane is most suitable for the process.
The infrastructure is the backbone of the total system. In the design of The LiftAssist, we strive for maximum weight savings to accomplish minimum effort while moving the load from A to B.
It is essential that infrastructure components, such as rail, trolleys and bearings match these design rules.
Dotec infrastructure is designed for the 24/7 production enviroment running at high frequencies.
Dotec Jib Cranes are most suitable for short transfer processes. They provide a comfortable and ergonomic movement, exist of state of the art materials and feel smooth while moving loads. With an integrated parking bracket it secures a safe way of parking the handler when it is not in use.
Dotec aluminium rail profiles have a unique way of suspending and trolley design providing a rolling recistance ≤1% of the load to be moved.
The Dotec System
Dotec LiftAssists have very specific characteristics that are based on ease of operation, speed of work and ergonomics. The learning curve is only 10 minutes, and handling becomes a pleasure.
