The ROTOCOAT coating lines provide utmost
flexibility, enabling the application of all coating
media types—water based, solvent based,
solventless and UV curable.
The ROTOMELT coating lines are tailor made
for hot melt applications, such as tapes and
labels. Perfect for all hot melt types, they
provide coating with a wide range of melting
dies, with contact and kiss coating, full width
and stripe coating
The ROTOSIL coating lines are high technolo-
gy solutions for production of release liners
and labelstock, also suitable for use with all
silicone types: water based, solvent based,
solventless and UV curable.
The ROTOTACKY coating lines are suitable
for consumer goods and industrial products,
such as technical tapes. Perfect for all adhe-
sive types, they feature a variety of coating
methods and drying systems adapted to the

A flat bed, inline hot foil embossing unit
requires a series of functions and high
performance in order to be able to be used
successfully. The RHINO’s rotating foil head
enables innovative, multiple color designs to
be produced directly inline in one cycle. With
qTool, RHINO offers the fastest tool changing.
The RHINO tool cassette immovably holds
male molds and stencils while remaining
Not even rotary printing machines get around
the use of a flat hot foil embosser when
difficult surfaces have to be embossed with
hot foil. The integration concept of RHINO is
proven in inline application in rotary machinery.
A separate web tension station uncouples
RHINO from the printing press.
The robust mechanics of RHINO enable web
speeds of up to 394 fpm. The integration
of the flat embossing unit into the printing
machine is now possible with suitable foil and
substrate without losses in productivity and a
multitude of advantages are accessible.
The RHINO has all the necessary functionality
to achieve perfect embossing results:
• Flat bed hot foil embossing for rough
papers and high relief depths
• Adjustable, precise processing time
independent of the production speed
• A robust design with a two eccentric
shaft for the hub, which ensures uniform
embossing pressure under extreme
The Kampf Conslit is a high speed, duplex slit-
ter/rewinder for the flexible packaging industry.
This machine, with more than 800 installations
worldwide, is considered the standard for slit-
ting after printing, coating and laminating lines.
The German engineered machine is a modular
design that allows for easy slit pattern setting,
precise core positioning and quick finished roll
removal. The standard model offers both razor
and shear slitting. This allows the Conslit to
slit a wide range of materials. The heavy duty
design and the state of the art control system
ensure high reliability and reproducible quality
rolls year after year.
