Coast Label Company in Southern California Installs Second Prati Machine
After installing a Prati Saturn slitter/rewinder equipped with 100% inspection roll-map editing in 2017, Coast Label Company was very familiar with the technology and capabilities Prati has to offer. The decision was easily made when new production demands required Coast Label to up their capacity and capability for high-volume production of small finished rolls. “Our sales team worked hard during the pandemic, and their efforts won new pieces of business that have created significant additional demand for small rolls, and we need to rewind several thousand additional rolls daily,” states Craig Moreland, Coast Label`s President and owner.
Totally flexible with glue-less technology, automatic core feeding from a vibrator bowl plus automatic core loading and automatic roll closure features, the equipment of choice was the Prati StarPlus auto turret rewinder as a stand-alone machine. “Not having to deal with the warm-up time or residue associated with hot melt glue for core attachment and roll closure means more up-time, and it meets our customers’ high expectations for quality - and this creates a double advantage for us,” continues Moreland “The machine cuts the web in the gap between labels perfectly every time, even when we’re running seven streams wide. The result is that every label we finish on the StarPlus is usable by the customer, which we found not to be the case for many other machines. Further, all signs in the labor market point to investing in automation to leverage our people for maximum productivity.” Concludes Moreland.
