The IR350 is an inspection rewinder built on the most modern electronic platform. Converting webs in widths up to 350mm on rolls of max 400mm in diameter, the IR350 offers converting speeds of up to 200m/min.
IR350 is fully compliant with all requirements for pharmaceutical and safety controls characterized by high standards and the highest quality. It can be used for multiple operations depending on the configuration, including inspection, back-numbering, counting, slitting, and multi-layer (peel & reveal) labels.
Thanks to the short inspection table the machine has a small footprint. It stops precisely for label inspection after detecting any errors.
IR350 can function as an inspection unit or a slitter rewinder depending on the configuration. The unit can work offline as a separate machine or in line with a dancer arm. In inline mode, it is typically connected to a digital press.
There are many possible options for the machine:
The web guide with the ultrasonic sensor is fitted as standard and has a built-in splice table with two air-controlled clamps.
This machine operates in full compliance with the strict rules of the pharmaceutical industry in terms of:
Moreover, it implements web path cleaning, by means of a purge liner between jobs to ensure compliance with Pharma Norm ISO 15378.
The system is bi-directional, which allows the users to back up and re-check a defective label making sure the job is 100% perfect. The inspection camera system stops the machine when a fault has been detected and moves the faulty label back to the repair table. The system can be fitted with cameras from AVT, BST, Nikka, Nyquist Systems, or other suppliers according to client requirements.
The machine has an easy-to-use touchscreen for intuitive operation. It features step-less electronic tension on both unwind and rewind spindles. The rewinder is equipped with air expansion mandrels with sleeves, easily exchangeable to other sizes. It can be set at rewinding label-in or label-out.
