Rollem Print Finishing Equipment For Sale

Following the recent announcement to postpone drupa 2020, we will have some machines which have “unexpectedly” become available for sale.

Normally, as a specialist machine builder, at Rollem we design and build our systems to order, however we were already committed to building the following systems purely for demonstration at the show:

System A

1 x Rollem SlipStream card cutting machine – for producing collated decks of gaming, trading or playing cards from printed sheets.

1 x Rollem AutoPunch – to punch complete decks of cards to provide casino quality finish with square or round corners.

System B

1 x Rollem 2-direction flexible finishing line, suitable for accurately and efficiently cutting printed sheets into almost any size of product from business cards to flyers or photographs

1 x Rollem Collator – to arrange, collect and stack decks of cards for onward processing eg punching, wrapping, banding etc

System C

1 x Rollem Champion – for semi-slitting, creasing, perforating, slitting and/or trimming of printed sheets up to A2 size.

We will be happy to take enquiries about these machines, either separately or as complete systems, which will be available with a short lead time, and of course, at an attractive discount to the normal price.

There is still time for us to make changes to specifications and flexibility, so we can hopefully meet any specific configurations.

If any of the above may be of interest to you, please contact Stewart Dyer with your requirements, and we will try to match these.

Rollem SlipStream III collator

Monthly New Feature: SlipStream III Collator

We are focusing on one new feature of our new integrated card finishing machine the SlipStream III in the build up to drupa 2021 in April 2021, where you will be able to see this new gaming card finishing system running on our stand (Hall 6, Stand C61).

The SlipStream III gives you the facility to be able to cut, collate, punch and wrap playing cards, gaming cards or business cards in one pass, so increasing your productivity whilst producing an accurate finished product.

This month’s new feature – SlipStream III Collator

As most card producers can testify, one of the significant challenges they face, is to find a reliable and efficient method of turning streams of individual playing cards into a sorted deck of cards arranged in the correct order.

This is further complicated by the modern trend towards a wider range of card pack sizes, for more and more diverse applications, with decks of up to 100 cards becoming commonplace.

The SlipStream integrated card collation module is the proven and reliable solution to that problem. The cut cards are delivered from the cutting units to the collator infeed, in virtually continuous streams, at a rate of up to 2,000 cards per minute.

PSU during assembly

In the first of a series of steps unique to Rollem’s playing card system, in the collation cartridge these streams are then turned into sub-decks, each sub-deck consisting of a row of cards. These sub-decks are then collected, in sequence, in the Pack Separation Unit, or PSU, which is where the next amazing transformation takes place.

Using the proprietary software, the PSU can be programmed to collate multiple sub-decks into a single deck. Each completed deck can therefore consist of as many, or as few, sub-decks as are required.

With this feature, a deck can consist of multiple sheets, or conversely, one sheet could produce multiple decks.

Complete decks are delivered from the PSU ready for the next process in the in-line system, the Rollem AutoPunch.
