  • Rapid introduces new kit for its Memjet range

    Rapid Machinery Company, the Australian-based manufacturer of Memjet-powered narrow web digital label printing systems, is introducing the Rapid-X SR2 (pictured) slitter-rewinder globally to complement the international footprint of  its X1 and X2 digital presses and  its D2 die-cutter/laminator.

    The company’s modular approach to short-run label printing is already proving popular among the market, with the first SR2 sale – part of a complete Rapid-X line – already on its way to Europe through master distributor, Impression Technology Europe (ITE).

    “The SR2 is a total rewinding solution with length/label counting, rotary knife slitting, trim extraction and dual reversing rewind spindles with 38mm and 76mm expanders as standard. It offers optional matrix rewinding, strobe inspection or other additions as requested,” says Nick Mansell, Rapid general manager and winner of the inaugural Print21 Graphic Arts Technology Innovator of the Year Award (GATI). “As short run digital label presses become more popular, the finishing systems are beginning to emulate those found on higher-speed devices.

    “Because Rapid runs a complete R&D and engineering shop, with over 35 years of experience making custom label equipment, we are well positioned to respond quickly to market demands and the SR2 is an example of this,” he says.

    ITE Managing Director Roy Burton, says: “We are delighted to be taking the first SR2, in addition to an X2 digital label press and D2 die-cutter, for one of our mainland Europe customers. The quality of the build, coupled with attractive investment and running costs, is hitting the right spot in the label market and we expect this to be the first of many.”
