ROTOCONTROL GmbH

RSP-H and RSP-V Pharmaceutical Security

The ROTOCONTROL RSP-H series machines are specifically designed for compliance with the most demanding security label inspection and finishing applications. The vision system provides 100% inspection of the web and stops the machine when a fault is detected, prior to slitting or other post-inspection operations. The faulty label is automatically placed on the inspection/splice table where the operator can perform corrective action.

Once the fault is corrected, the web reverses and the corrected label passes under the vision system a 2nd time, ensuring 100% compliant product is passed to the next stages of production.

The ROTOCONTROL RSP machines feature an extremely small footprint- only 1.2 x 2.6 meters of floor space plus the moveable control panel. 100% servo drive including the dynamic accumulator assures precise, automatic tension control and high speed- trademarks of all ROTOCONTROL machines.

The RSP machines are available in 340, 440 and 540mm web widths with all of the options normally associated with the RSC Slitter/Rewinder Inspection machines including large capacity separate unwind, shear and razor slitting cartridges, waste wind-up, strobe illumination and multiple shaft sizes.

The machine can operate in 3 distinct levels of compliance conforming to the required level of security.

These include:


Full Compliance

In Full Compliance mode, a defective label must be corrected and re-inspected before the process can continue and cannot be overridden by the operator. This mode is intended for applications where 100% compliant labels must be guaranteed.

Controlled Compliance

In this mode, the operator can choose to re-inspect the corrected label with a single button push, or bypass the re-inspection system and accept a defective label after manually inspecting or correcting it. This mode is intended for premium value-add labels that require the highest quality but leave some discretion to the operator in order to increase throughput.

High Speed Inspection

This mode engages the 100% vision inspection system but does not utilize the re-inspection capability. The machine places defective labels on the inspection plate where the operator corrects the defective label and continues the process until the next defect is detected. This mode is intended for standard labels and the defect parameters can be set to balance high throughput with acceptable quality.

The ROTOCONTROL RSP-V series machines incorporate a fully integrated 100% vision inspection system which stops the machine when a fault is detected, prior to slitting or other post-inspection operations. The faulty label is automatically placed on the inspection/splice table where the operator can perform corrective action. Once the fault is corrected the web is rewound in its entirety onto a high capacity rewind for re-inspection prior to slitting for 100% compliance requirements. For lower security applications, the web can continue directly on to slitting and other post-inspection operations.
