Edge Trim and Label Matrix Case Studies
Old Trail Printing
- Challenge/Solution: Paper trim coming off a Muller-Martini saddle stitcher is compacted into KenBay bags weighing approximately 1,000 lbs. when filled.
- Challenge: Reduce compacting and labor costs of disposing of sticky matrix left from producing labels.
- Solution: The RotoPac with Teflon® coated drum was installed to compact matrix being blown into it from two label making machines.
- Result: The client, a maker of pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) material for making labels, primarily for the pharmaceutical industry, was blowing the matrix material through plasma coated 12” pipes to a RotoPac. The compacted materials produced about 750 lb bags of waste for disposal.
