Press Release

Rotech Spread the Word on New Label-Free, Large Area Printing Technology

14th February 2020

Rotech is pleased to announce that we will be showcasing an exciting new range of Seiko thermal inkjet technology at Foodex 2020, which enables food and drink manufacturers to eliminate all carton labelling and barriers to recycling.

A further star of the show will be our 200th Special edition RF Lite. Introduced for the first time at Foodex 2016, the simple, low-cost offline carton feeder halves the cost of entry level automatic coding machines, allowing companies to automate their date marking process for the first time or apply as a dedicated marking system on production lines. Visitors to the stand will be able to collect a voucher for a special show offer to celebrate this significant milestone.

Sustainable, label-free, large area printing technology

With sustainability and recyclability being primary drivers for food and drink producers, Rotech’s new Seiko thermal inkjet printers allow customers to print in high resolution on both primary and secondary packaging, on areas of up to 500mm wide.

Until this point, labels and the use of oil-based inks, has made cartons difficult to recycle.  The new Seiko printing technology not only saves on the cost of labels and the associated labour costs, the printed cartons can now be widely recycled.

Clean, on-demand flexible printing

In addition to the sustainability benefits that the Seiko printer has to offer, its FREEFLOW™ on-demand ink system is completely maintenance free; the non-pressurised ink tank eliminates nozzle leaks and mess as the internal pressure is always be equal to the external environment.

Try them for yourself on Stand S218

Visitors to the Rotech stand at Foodex 2020 can try any one of Rotech’s solutions, including the Seiko printer, the RF Lite, and their popular RF Auto, a heavy duty, high speed, sleeve carton and bag coder that automatically adjusts to accommodate varying thicknesses of sleeves, reducing set up time and waste.
