Printed Film/Printed Tear Tape Registration

AccuPac is an integrated system for total accuracy and control of film positioning that allows the use of overprinted films for cigarette and cigar wrapping machines.

With increasing restrictions being placed on the advertising of tobacco products, AccuPac provides vital point-of-sale promotional opportunities by allowing announcement flashes, special offers and even bar codes to be displayed colourfully on the pack itself - without the need for costly overprinting of the base pack blank.

Very importantly, AccuPac Film Print Registration Systems can be retro-fitted to all of the most commonly used cigarette wrapping machinery with the minimum of disruption and downtime for the packing line. It provides a cost-effective solution to on-pack promotional requirements. Set-ups can be carried out rapidly, while fast and accurate reel changes provide vital continuity on the line.

AccuPac also delivers improved quality control and production information, with accuracy of alignment and consistency of film supply, even using thin gauge films. AccuPac is a range of print registration control systems for Horizontal Print Positioning, Tear Tape Registration and Vertical Print Positioning. The range is now extended to include registration of pre-printed inner frame and inner foil. AccuPac is in use worldwide in 19 countries and is fast becoming the industry standard for print registration systems.
