Rotatek Offset Printing Presses

Visit Label Expo Brussels Hall 5 B40 that bridges flexo speeds with digital flexibility.

Leadership:

ROTATEK S.A. was founded in 1972 and today it is a leading company in the manufacture of rotary printing presses and complementary equipment. Since 1978 we have been exporting our range of machines to the five continents. Approximately 100 highly qualified and motivated people work in our modern factory and offices using the latest production methods. Our products are constantly being adapted to the evolution of the Graphic Arts market.

During its first years of existence, Rotatek gained a high regard in the sector of narrow web commercial and business forms printing. Today, it is one of the leaders in this field. The continuous development of new technologies and production processes has allowed us to enter into the flexography field. We now offer a range of rotary flexographic machines for printing labels, films and flexible packaging, light carton, etc.

Universal:

The Universal is a variable repeat offset sleeve press where each printing unit is equipped with interchangeable lightweight sleeves. The variable repeat is obtained by changing only the plate and blanket sleeve, so the web is not broken and is an extremely easy and quick system.

The sleeves are patented by Rotatek's unique design of creating ring bearers to support high printing pressure that cannot be replicated by any other manufacturer. A simpler mechanical locking design also allows for quicker change over without the need of air positioning.

The universal is a fully automatic inking, register and tension control system. Full servo motors allow individual control of the units to obtain perfect register and size even with the most difficult substrates for offset quality.

  • Patented Ring Bearing sleeve (a Rotatek creation) with flexible format repeat
  • Environmentally friendly UV or EB inks
  • Films, BOPP, PET, PVC (12-400 microns)
  • Shrink Sleeves
  • Self Adhesive Labels
  • Folding Carton (up to 400 gr/m2)
  • Aluminum
  • Paper


Brava:

The Brava is a Semi-rotary and Full Rotary press printing in wet offset for the production of high quality labels. The combination of the two impression technologies gives the best possibility for the printing of short, medium or long runs with a maximum profitability.

The Semi-rotary system covers the printing of formats from 120 mm up top 350 mm without the need to change the print cassette or other element giving an immediate benefit in set-up time, and a reduction in waste during running. With a print width of 420 mm, and a running speed of 70 metres/minute in Semi-Rotary mode and 150 metres/minute in full rotary mode, this is the most productive press on the market.

The Brava guarantees a maximum print quality by using wet offset print combined with a maximum precision thanks to the latest generation of servo driven Shaft-less drive technology.



Combi:

The Combi offset printing press is suitable for printing labels, flexible packaging, commercial printing and more. The Combi has a modular design that permits a totally variable composition, not only of the flexo and offset printing units but also a wide range of other printing, processing and in-line finishing operations.

It combines in-line the advantages of flexo and offset printing and permits all kinds of custom made configurations, combining flexo and offset with other printing, converting and finishing. There are practically no limits for the configuration of the narrow web COMBI press, whether for the production of labels, cartons, mailings, commercial printing, flexible film or any other complex printing process.
