Werosys Announces Company Name Change to REFINE Finishing

 


Denmark based machine manufacturer, Werosys ApS, is changing course and announcing the company name change to REFINE Finishing. The new brand name will be rolled out across all platforms from March 1, 2019.

With massive company-wide investments, REFINE Finishing is ready to introduce a new, streamlined product program to the label and packaging world, continuing on the company philosophy of reshaping the finishing industry with smart, software-based solutions and bettering the conventional design approach which typically starts with hardware engineering.

The Digital Domain
The baseline of REFINE’s production is the digital domain. The company designs machines with a clear focus on automation through Industry 4.0, cloud computing, and Internet of Things. This allows for real-time monitoring of machines, full remote control through existing network infrastructures, and consolidation of machine and job data in the cloud. Data is used for problem-solving, preventive maintenance, and machine efficiency reports, to name a few.

New Product Lines
At Flexo & Labels 2019, March 19-21 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, visitors will get the first glance at the new REFINE Compact product line – an incredibly user-friendly, efficient and productive converting solution, with a handful of attractive options. REFINE Compact is one half of the streamlined product program which also features the REFINE Creative line, a modular and equally intuitive solution that allows custom configurations to meet the modern printer’s exact production needs and requirements.

Strengthened Leadership, Sales and Service
Alongside the new company name, redesigned brand identity, and complete product overhaul, REFINE Finishing is also restructuring and presenting a strengthened leadership team, spearheaded by CTO & Founder, Bjarke Nielsen, and new Managing Director, Henrik Haagensen. Furthermore, the company has secured a global expansion of its Sales and Service Network, now represented in multiple showrooms across the globe and with a global team of service technicians standing by to assist current and future REFINE product owners.

Quote
”With new structural changes, investments, and product lines, we saw it as a natural development to rename the company and create a brand new visual identity. We landed on REFINE – The clever way to convert, and we are really excited about it. REFINE is what we do – improve and perfect labels and flexible packaging with intelligent converting and finishing solutions. Moreover, REFINE is who we are – free in our approach to converting, rid of unwanted processes, and focused on crafting the solutions that work for our customers. The new tagline is pretty simple too – our converting solutions are clever – we think software, automation, and efficiency first, and then we physically build the machinery. Not the other way around,” says Bjarke Nielsen, CTO & Founder, REFINE Finishing.

We will be showcasing the Compact Ultra at the show – please come by for a demonstration!

The Compact Ultra is an extremely compact digital converting machine for die cutting and slitting. It has a very small footprint and is one of the most compact and economic converting units in the market, making it ideal for businesses looking for a low-cost entry into label converting.

Compact Ultra comes with unwind, full and semi-rotary die cut, slitting and rewind. Lamination station is optional. It can be supplied with either magnetic or pneumatic splice table and with a choice of oscillating razor blades or rotating shear knives. It can work as a stand-alone unit or run inline with any digital press on the market.

We look forward to meet you and to discuss which solution may suit your needs and demands.

Werosys launches cloud-based Industry 4.0 and IoT solution at LabelExpo

 

Werosys is already taking full advantage of Industry 4.0 and IoT by integrating all Werosys machines with the customer’s IT infrastructure and Werosys cloud servers. This allows for real time monitoring of all Werosys machines, full remote control, as well as consolidation of machine and job data in the cloud.

The collected data can be used not only to locate a problem, but by analysing the data we can anticipate breakdowns and thereby schedule preventative maintenance. It also allows us to collect data about the machine and provide reports about machine efficiency, waste levels, and make recommendations for future improvements.

We look forward to see you at LabelExpo stand 9C24 for a live demonstration of our Industry 4.0 solution.

 

Amica Systems & Werosys launches UV Full Colour inkjet solutions

 

Amica Systems Europe B.V. and Werosys ApS Denmark will at Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels present a brand new partnership offering unique and new solutions to the digital printing market.

With the combined experience of both companies, customers will get the best of both worlds; a unique full colour UV inkjet system and a servo driven roll-to-roll transport system with a perfect stable transport for excellent print quality.

Patrick Citroen, Managing Director of Amica Europe: “As Amica Systems is highly experienced in the field of industrial inkjet systems, we were searching for a partner with outstanding knowledge on roll-to-roll transport where we can integrate our modular inkjet system. With Werosys we have found a company with all the capabilities we were looking for and, above all, the flexibility to act fast and professional to serve our needs”.

Soren Pedersen, Managing Director of Werosys: “During our initial talks with Amica Systems we quickly came to the conclusion that a collaboration could enable both companies to develop a range of interesting products, which we see a clear need for in the market. By combining Werosys’ highly modular Compact platform with Amica’s unique UV inkjet technology, we developed a solution that can be combined with any Werosys Compact module to form a Hybrid print and converting solution at a very competitive price point. The combination of a number of Werosys fully automated flexo printing modules with CMYK UV inkjet means that our customers can combine printing technologies – and perform final finishing for one-stop label production.”

At Labelexpo, Amica Systems will present the Gemini 330 UV Label Press fully integrated on the Werosys Roll-to-Roll system. Werosys will be demonstrating a hybrid solution were the Amica UV full colour inkjet is fully integrated – and can be combined with either semi-rotary or laser die cutting and automatic slitting.

With this partnership we believe that we will bring truly unique and highly competitive solutions to the label printing market.

Come and see us at LabelExpo, where Amica Systems can be found at stand 9C60 and Werosys at stand 9C24.

Big Data monitoring is the future

 

As a company driven by Intelligent Converting and IT integration, Werosys is of course in the forefront of this development. Our machines are not only Industry 4.0 ready, we are already up and running with a cloud-based solution where we can monitor all Werosys machines installed throughout the World. We can collect data about machine performance, efficiency of different job types, waste levels, temperature profiles, etc. – and feed this back to our customers as digested data that shows trend curves of machine/operator performance, production hours to next scheduled service based on real time wear data, remaining life time on UV Lamps, improvements recommendations, etc..

This Labels & Labeling article outlines Werosys & LabelSupply’s view on future converting, which demands stronger focus on automation and Industry 4.0. With automated workflow solutions you will get numerous production advantages, such as quicker job changeovers, less material waste, and remote support and service.
