Feeding Systems

British-made, innovative systems, ideal for off-line coding on a wide range of packaging types. Providing reliable and flexible solutions.

The Rotech Tick

In a nutshell

Although coding your products and packaging on-line is nearly always favourable for its ease and efficiency, it’s not always the best solution. For some applications, coding away from your production line (off-line) is the preferred method, offering flexibility and dependability when your production line needs it.

From the entry-level RF Lite, built as a simple, low-cost solution for customers automating their off-line coding for small-medium production batches. All the way through to our flagship RF Compliance, complete with a serialisation-capable multi-head printer, reject verification system, and shingling collection conveyor. Designed from the ground up to comply with the heavily regulated pharmaceutical industry. All our solutions are designed, prototyped, and built here in the UK, so we have ultimate flexibility in engineering a solution made for you.

Why go off-line?

High speed icon

Fast

  • Industry-leading speed – some of our systems can code a day’s worth of production in under an hour – considerably faster than hand coding or labelling small and medium batches
  • Reduces labour requirements for coding and marking, allowing the workforce to be more productive
  • Some systems are compatible with an optional shingling conveyor, so a single operator can handle even large and fast production volumes
  • Minimise downtime by swapping between product sizes in seconds with quick-adjust in-feed hoppers

Reliable icon

Reliable

  • Replicate perfect results over and over again with a feeding system that presents the product or packaging the exact same way every time
  • Some of our systems are designed and built for production volumes of up to 25,000 products per day, so you can be confident your production remains uninterrupted day after day
  • All of Rotech’s feeding systems are designed, prototyped and built here in the UK using quality materials and components designed to last
  • 12-month warranty with all feeding systems

Accuracy / accurate icon

Precise

  • We design and manufacture our own systems, so have ultimate flexibility in engineering a solution made for you

Cost effective icon

Cost-effective

  • Great for businesses producing campaign, seasonal or special products, who need a flexible solution that can code or mark only a low number of batches before changing packaging or product entirely – which would potentially render their on-line solution useless
  • The range of feeding solutions we supply means we have everything from the entry-level RF Lite to the fully comprehensive RF Compliance – all our systems provide very short pay-back times

Versatile icon

Versatile

  • Across our systems we utilise a range of feeding methods which gives us the unique advantage of feeding even the most difficult flat-form products and packaging including flexible packaging and those with variable thickness
  • Most of our systems are fitted with our own thermal inkjet technology, ensuring a crisp, clear print without mess or odour
  • The majority of systems are also compatible with a range of other coding, marking and labelling systems including TTO, CIJ and Print & Apply label applicators
