Daco Reports Successful SRV350 Launch at Labelexpo Europe

New inspection slitter rewinder launched, and customized sheeter sold during show

Daco Solutions reported a positive reception from Labelexpo Europe 2023 visitors to its new SRV350 inspection slitter rewinder, which the company launched during the show.

The UK manufacturer also signed a deal on the show floor for the sale of a customized sheeting system to Wisconsin, US-based converter Kenco Label & Tag.

The new servo-driven SRV350 features an inspection system from Nikka, closed-loop unwind tension control, and a fully automatic slitting unit with servo-driven positioning of the knives. It runs at speeds of up to 300m/min with a 350mm web width and 800mm unwind diameter. An optional accumulator can be added, so any labels replaced on the web will pass back underneath the camera to ensure 100 percent inspection. 

‘There was a very positive response to the new SRV350 inspection slitter rewinder – which is the highest-specification system in our slitter rewinder range. We received many enquiries and a few companies have said that they will order a machine in the coming weeks,’ said managing director David Beynon.

‘The new fully automatic slitting feature drew particular interest from many visitors to our stand. One customer in Poland is upgrading its three Daco PLR350V turret rewinders to include fully automatic slitting.’

Sales manager Mark Laurence was particularly happy with the quality of visitors to the show in Brussels: ‘Fifty percent of the leads we received during Labelexpo Europe were companies that we didn’t previously know,’ he said. ‘We also saw many more of our existing customers than usual. In the first two days of the show, eight of our top ten customers had visited our stand.’

Alongside the new SRV350, Daco Solutions ran demonstrations of its PLD350 semi-automatic turret rewinder for plain label production.
