IR330 Inspection Rewinder

IR330 Inspection Rewinder

The IR330 series machines are fully compliant with all pharmaceutical and security inspection demands. It has been designed in accordance with the new line and built on a new modern electronic platform.  The machine is fully configurable and retrofittable. It is distinguished by high speed and high precision. 
Thanks to short inspection table the machine has a small footprint and saves the space. It stops precisely and accurately for label inspection after detecting any errors. 


IR330 can function as an inspection unit or a slitter rewinder depending on the configuration. The unit can work offline as a separate machine or inline with a dancer arm. In inline mode it is typically connected to a digital press.

This machine operates in full compliance to the strict rules of the pharmaceutical industry in terms of:

  • Inspection
  • Back numbering
  • Counting
  • Slitting and Rewinding

Moreover, it implements web path cleaning, by means of a purge liner between jobs to ensure compliance with Pharma Norm ISO 15378.

The system is bi-directional, which allows the users to back-up and re-check a defective label making sure the job is 100% perfect. The inspection camera system stops the machine when a fault has been detected and moves the faulty label back to the repair table.

The machine has an easy to use touchscreen and features step-less electronic tension on both unwind and rewind spindles. A web guide with ultrasonic sensor is fitted as standard. The web guide has a build-in splice table with two air controlled clamps. There are many possible options to the machine: razor blade system, multi-layer label insertion or inkjet head - the printing system can print a report for each roll of labels, according to end-user requirements.

The system can be fitted with cameras from Nikka, AVT, BST, TubeScan or client equipment.

The rewinder is equipped with air expansion mandrels with sleeves, easily exchangeable to other sizes. The rewinder can be set at rewinding label-in or label-out.
