A new Rotoflex VLI 600 for offline finishing of unsupported film was recently installed at Dan Labels, a rapidly growing label printer in Denmark. Instrumental in the sale was RR Print, a long established distributor of printing products and machinery based near Copenhagen.

Critical criteria to Dan Labels in their new finishing machine investment was reliable slitting of 600mm wide rolls of PP and PE material with a variety of thicknesses, and at high speed for long runs. The decision to purchase the Rotoflex VLI slitter rewinder was made shortly after Dan Labels saw a live demo at the Mark Andy regional demonstration facility in Poland, accompanied by Mads Iversen of RR Print.
Jakob Abildgård, production manager of Dan Labels said: “Rotoflex was one of few manufactures that offer a 600mm wide finishing machine as standard, and after seeing it perform in Poland, we were convinced it was the best solution. From our existing relationship with RR Print for consumables, we also had the assurance of dependable local support. In just two days our new VLI was up and running unsupported film, and impressed us with its high speed at over 600 m/min. It has already outperformed our expectations.”
Established in 1987, Dan Labels initially produced labels for the Good Food Group but have since expanded into other markets, with two-thirds of production now serving other customers throughout Denmark and Europe. Despite its rapid growth, the company has managed to maintain two main criteria for success: flexibility and fast delivery.
