AB Graphic to Demonstrate Converting and Finishing Lines at Labelexpo
At Labelexpo Europe 2011, Bridlington, U.K.-based AB Graphic International Ltd. will feature the latest developments in its Omega and Vectra range of label converting and finishing lines with the focus on fast job changes, reduced waste, and non-stop production.
Two versions of the company’s Omega Digicon 2, label converting lines will run live demonstrations featuring non-stop operation with semi-automatic turret rewinders to eliminate additional finishing. One model will be demonstrated off-line with a basic turret rewinder to allow machine slow down when the finished roll terminates and the second will operate at full speed and include Nordson automatic gluing.
The new Omega ATR inspection rewinder will also be featured. This model is equipped with turret rewinder to allow the operator to visually inspect the web while maintaining non-stop finishing.
Featuring new software upgrades, the Digicon Sabre Xtreme laser cutter will be demonstrated running three jobs with non-stop digital die changes and Tidland automatic slit pattern changeover. The system will feature digital cold foil application through inkjet technology to apply the adhesive without the use of printing plates. This also gives the opportunity to print variable date in cold foil.
Several Omega Digicon converting lines will also feature on the HP stand converting digitally printed webs in line with the HPW6000 print engine.
