Finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG), has launched the next evolution of its highly popular Omega SRI label finishing system.
Delivering high performance slitting, rewinding and inspection, the updated model offers a range of new and adjustable options to meet future requirements.
With a larger unwind diameter at 830mm, and increased nip roller wraparound, waste is reduced, and tension control improved, preventing slippage, and interweaving of the web and providing unparalleled versatility.
The upgraded features, which include a lower splice table, allow operators greater flexibility and increased ergonomic comfort, thereby improving productivity and efficiency.
ABG said the SRI3 is also the only machine in its class that doesn’t rely on a third party inspection system. Providing 100 per cent print inspection with ABG’s fleyeVision camera system, it aims to work perfectly together with seamless integration.
Other enhancements include an arm that enables a right-handed operator to easily cut the reel, and a tape holder, which is built-in as per ABG’s Digicon range.
Manual slitting can now be upgraded to autoslit, which was not possible on the previous SRI, and the rewind module can be taken out and replaced with a turret at a later stage.
Designed with retrofitting possibilities in mind and a modular setup to make future updates simple, the SRI3 can be fully configured to meet individual needs.
“At ABG, we strive to deliver premium service and the best experiences for our customers across the globe,” ABG managing director Ralf Wirtz said.
“And with over 30 years’ experience manufacturing slitter rewinders, this commitment to excellence is at the core of our evolutionary approach to the SRI’s unique design.”
