Labels, Tags & Inserts Chooses Rollem Device for its Expansion into Packaging
Labels, Tags & Inserts (LTI) has expanded its capabilities with the installation of the Insignia6H diecutter with a folding gluing system from Rollem (Booth N503) for its Burlington, NC, facility. LTI has delivered exceptional flexographic printing solutions to its customers for more than two decades with its wide range of capabilities and customer service. It serves industries from apparel, consumer products, food & beverage, and health & beauty, to promotional direct mailing and everything in between. LTI’s founder, Leroy Baker, was quoted in 2007: “I only want the best, and that’s what we’ll pass to our customers.” LTI continues to operate under this same principle — only the best.
LTI was looking to expand its capabilities even further with the Insignia6H, to offer folding cartons and packaging to its customer base by bringing production in-house. Expanding its production possibilities with the Insignia6H was a natural fit. It no longer needed to send clients’ packaging orders to other suppliers or outsource jobs to other companies.
“By merging our successful flexo print platform with the new folding carton Insignia diecutter, a whole new department and revenue stream has been opened with minimal investment,” says Rhonda Baker, president of LTI.
Insignia’s functions include diecutting, kisscutting, embossing, perforating, scoring, creasing, and hole punching as standard with any Insignia model. The 6H model utilizes two flex dies for the applications listed above, but it has the flexibility to utilize a single upper cutting die with a lower solid “blanket” or “jacket” die on the bottom cylinder when strictly cutting is required. In the case of LTI’s installation, the folding and gluing system was installed in a near-line configuration to handle the final folding and gluing of folding cartons as the product is finished nearby on the Insignia.
Rollem’s Insignia series of diecutters have been adopted by a variety of print providers across the US and internationally. And it’s very versatile: the four model sizes complement most press sizes, each system includes the automatic waste stripping section, and users can opt for a choice of three delivery types to best suit their demands.
