"We're excited to launch the RD AutoScore, which offers a new level of automation and efficiency for our customers," said Aaron Powers, Global Product Manager at Maxcess. "With decades of knowledge working with pressure sensitive materials through our RotoMetrics brand, we understand that reducing setup times while maximising line speeds is paramount to a successful label or specialty converting application. We believe this product provides significant value to our customers and will enhance their press productivity and operator safety.”

Quick and precise setup

The RD AutoScore provides quick and precise setup of score blades, reducing setup time and allowing for consistent scoring of all liner materials, including film liners like PET. It also improves safety by eliminating the need for operators to make regular adjustments while reaching into the press. This enables users to run faster with less downtime, solving material variation challenges and offering superior performance. The RD AutoScore offers a return on investment in less than a year when compared to manual score systems, making it a valuable addition to any tag and label or specialty material converting operation.
