Hot Foil Over-printers

Rotormotion Hot Foil Overprinting is the most cost effective method of imposing high definition 'best before' dates and product coding onto product packaging.

We proudly present our range of Hot Foil Over-printers, which we have designed, manufactured and supplied to many industries over the years. We have installed our printers in most leading snack food manufacturers in the U.K., including Walkers Crisps, Golden Wonder, United Biscuits, KP Foods etc, plus overseas.

Type and Foil

We also offer a range of Printing Type and Foil for use with our printers and many other makes of Printers.

Printing Consumables

Type Holders and Type

Rotormotion machine cut brass or steel type prints the ultimate impression. Especially designed for Hot Foil Overprinting, our fitters are machined to precise limits with each character individually engraved and hand finished to ensure a perfect print is achieved time after time.

Over 100 different type face styles are available from our extensive range. We can also supply Company Logos, Dies, Die Chases and Type in any language.

Pre-Heater Units are available for all Rotormotion Over-printers. These enable the Type Holder to be preheated to the correct temperature, ready for an “instant” changeover of type, thereby shortening downtime.

Printing Foil

We supply a large range of Printing Foil at very competitive prices. Almost any colour including Gold, Silver or Bronze, supplied in boxed quantities. Most orders are despatched within one week, carriage paid inland.

We supply Printing Foil for any make of printer whether it be 'Hot Foil' or 'Thermal'. Also, we can test your packaging materials to achieve optimum performance.

Film Perforator

Our Film Perforator has been designed to end the need of buying expensive pre-perforated packaging material, as they allow the perforating to be carried out 'on-line'. Thereby, dramatically reducing packaging costs.

It was primarily intended for use in the perishable goods industry, especially fruit, vegetable and bakery products. Recently, we have installed our 'Free Wheeling Perforators' onto crisp and snack production lines for perforating 'Multi-Bags' to discard trapped surplus air. This product also operates at the speed of customers own machine.

Flavour Applicators / Powder Dispensers

Rotormotion have many years experience in the manufacture and supply of machinery to dispense flavouring powders and salt. This places us in an ideal position to assess the changing needs of the industry. In response to these changes, we are pleased to introduce our new flavour applicator. The new unit includes radical and detail changes which have dramatically improved performance.

Using a spare hopper, auger and auger tube, flavour changes can now be carried out with the aid of a simple tool in less than five minutes. All hoppers, augers and auger tubes are interchangeable between different machines allowing maximum flexibility.

Curtain Tray

The Rotormotion Curtain tray Feeder is intended to be used in conjunction with a Rotormotion Flavour Applicator.

The unit comprises of a rigid 'U' section tray mounted on a vibrating feeder. The tray out-feed end is cut at an angle to form an even ‘curtain’ of seasoning.

Using a Rotormotion Flavour Applicator, the correct amount of seasoning should be deposited at the in-feed end of the tray. The action of the vibrating feeder moves the seasoning along the tray until it arrives at the weir, it then spreads laterally out to the edges of the tray and builds up until the depth of seasoning is the same as the height of the weir. As the seasoning travels along the tray it falls off the angled cut as an even curtain.

Our Curtain Tray Feeders can be supplied in many different lengths to suit individual customer requirements. The unit is factory set and requires no adjustment.

Oil Pump and Spray Head Unit

The Rotormotion Oil Pump and Spray Head Unit is intended to be used in conjunction with the Rotormotion Flavour Applicator and Curtain Tray.

To complement these units we have developed a range of cost effective, variable speed fluid pumps. These pumps can be used in tandem with the Rotormotion Air Atomising Spray Head to apply edible oils and/or and powder mixes directly onto snack foods and other products.

The basic unit uses a peristaltic pump coupled to a variable speed motor with simple rotary speed control.

The size of the aperture in the spray head and the flexibility of the delivery tube can be balanced to give a spray of fine droplets with minimum misting - whilst at the same time being virtually free of pulsing.

The unit can be sized to deliver very small quantities - as little as 50 millimetres per minute for such applications as glazed roasted peanuts: up to quantities of 10 litres per minute, for large scale production of extruded maize type snack foods or chicken nuggets etc.

Slurry Unit

This compact unit has been specially developed to instantaneously mix and apply a flavouring slurry of oil and powder to snack foods and other products. It can effectively reduce costs and improve production, for it eliminates:

Heat Sealing Jaws

We manufacture Heat Sealing Jaws to suit most packaging machines to precision specifications.

Our jaws are manufactured using Mild Steel, Stainless Steel or Aluminium and can be 'finished' with an appropriate coating E.G. Our Mild Steel Jaws can be coated in Dull Hard Chrome and our Aluminium Jaws can be coated in either Black Anodised or Teflon.

We cut the teeth in crimps varying from:

16 T.P.I x 120° inclusive through to
12 T.P.I x 90° inclusive
12 T.P.I x 60° inclusive
12 T.P.I x 79° inclusive

Many jaws do not necessarily have to be replaced when their 'teeth' have become worn.
We offer a re-cutting and re-coating service which can prove very cost effective (can extend the life of a set of jaws by four times).
