Durst expands its Tau 330 series with new leading
edge UV inkjet single pass printing technology

 

Durst, manufacturer of advanced digital production technologies, presented its latest development, the new digital - high resolution - high speed - 8 color label press Tau 330 RSC inline with OMET’s Xflex X6 hybrid solution as well as its new Web2Print workflow at Labelexpo 2017 in Brussels.

 

The new Tau 330 RSC is a UV inkjet label and package printing press featuring 330 mm (13 in.) print width combined with leading edge print speed of up to 78 linear meters/min (245 ft./min) at 1200 x 1200 dpi printing resolutions.

Faster lead times help label converters to respond
to brand owners demand for higher market responsiveness

 

Esko (www.esko.com) showcased a wide range of innovative solutions for brand owners and label converters at Labelexpo Europe 2017. These solutions address various business challenges faced by brand owners as well as converters across the end-to-end label workflow. Esko is joined by X-Rite and Pantone on Stand 3C50 at the show.

“All industry trends confirm that the label industry continues to enjoy healthy growth, with a shift towards more short runs that need to be turned around faster. At Labelexpo, visitors will see solutions on our stand that address this trend and simplify many steps in the process of label production throughout each stage of the workflow”, said Udo Panenka, President of Esko. “Our range of solutions, together with those from the Product Identification Platform of Danaher, shorten the lead-time by cutting time out of processes, reducing the risk for errors and assuring consistently high output quality.”

 

Labels Simplified — Innovations that help overcome growing complexity

Sixty percent of respondents to a recent CMO Council study sponsored by Danaher companies identified product labels and packaging as a critical touchpoint in their omni-channel engagement strategy. In fact, the study suggests that physical touch points like product packaging and in-store displays are seen as more important to the success of the overall customer experience than channels like email, direct mail and mobile apps. At the same time, consumers expect brands to be responsive to trends, suggestions, complaints and more.

As a result, brand owners need to be able to adapt their labels and packaging ever faster, and to print lower quantities “just in time.” In fact, many brand owner respondents to the CMO Council study looked to be able to achieve a 14-day turnaround for packaging changes. Converters need to respond to these requirements with a more efficient and integrated production workflow that can involve a mix of print environments. And they need to do so with as much automation as possible in order to deliver profitably against these demands.

For label and packaging converters, Esko solutions are designed to improve lead time and equipment utilization, reduce errors, and ensure consistently high output quality regardless of the printing technology used. The result is an overall improved efficiency in the entire operation, from incoming order to the delivery of the printed and finished materials.

Gallus Holding Logo

 

Gallus Labelmaster & Gallus Labelmaster Advanced
offer maximum flexibility

 

The Gallus Labelmaster Advanced line’s impressive modular design combines maximum flexibility with a high level of automation. The new press offers label printers an unrivalled variety of processes, as the various finishing and printing units can be changed quickly and easily at any machine position.

All Gallus Labelmaster presses share the same special platform design and can be configured to meet the customer’s specific requirements. With its open interfaces, this machine series represents a highly secure investment and enables users to respond flexibly to future changes in the market.

In the new platform system, the Gallus Labelmaster is made up of modules each comprising two printing units. These modules are available in three different variants. The basic variant already covers all the essential label printing standards. The Plus version provides significantly enhanced flexibility to cover many applications in the label industry, and the Advanced line can virtually meet any requirement and be configured to include as much or as little automation as necessary. By offering this modular system, Gallus is ensuring that label printers can satisfy prevailing market requirements and always remain fit for the future – all for a level of investment that would previously have been inconceivable for premium products.

The new Gallus Labelmaster machine platform boasts a whole series of product highlights, such as an extremely short web path of just 1.4 m between printing units and a high maximum speed of 200 m/min, thus making the Gallus Labelmaster the fastest label printing press that Gallus has ever produced. The press can be controlled centrally via an HMI touch panel, although manual intervention is also supported, with operators being able to make changes with ease and, more importantly, very quickly. Thereby, extremely short setup times can be achieved. The lightweight aluminium printing cylinders that were specially developed for this machine type can be changed in just a few quick steps, thus ensuring that job changes can be completed with unparalleled speed.

An optimised ink chamber for the doctor blade needs just 250 g of ink and therefore keeps the associated costs low while minimising ink spitting and foaming. The newly designed flexographic printing unit, which benefits from the construction principles established in sheetfed offset at the parent company Heidelberg, is directly driven by two servomotors and delivers Gallus premium quality from the start. Besides being provided with flexographic printing units, the press can also be equipped with a newly developed screenprinting unit that enables users to make the most of high-end finishing options.

The register accuracy of the Gallus Labelmaster is particularly striking – whether the press is being run at a low setup speed or accelerated to a high maximum speed, the printed image is always in register, without the slightest correction necessary. This performance highlights the precision of the Gallus Labelmaster.

PRATI exhibited an extended range of finishing machines, technologies and live demonstrations at LABELEXPO EUROPE 2017

all pack 83 prati 

 

• FUTURA by PRATI, the new Industry 4.0 compliant concept for the Smart Factory
• The facts and figures supporting the impressive track record for the DIGIFAST ONE
• PRATI hosts a Virtual Reality attraction giving visitors an insight into “life as a label”

A t this year’s edition of LABELEXPO EUROPE, PRATI exhibited 12 different solutions with specific configurations from the ever-growing range. Many of them have been used during the tradeshow to enable live demonstrations for different label types, giving visitors an opportunity to see all the latest PRATI technology in action. Crowds have gathered at the company booth to take a close look at some of the latest features and technologies developed by the leading Italian firm since the previous edition of the tradeshow.

In just 2 years the DIGIFAST ONE has become a favourite digital finishing solution

Since its introduction in 2015, DIGIFAST ONE is now being manufactured in batches of 10 machines at a time to respond to the fast-growing market demand for this solution. On show at LABELEXPO both a compact version and an advanced configuration have eloquently demonstrated the high processing speeds and accuracy – tolerance levels never exceed 0.15 mm – while handling added value labels as well as wine bottle labels during the show. Managing speeds of 90m/min. and cutting waste dramatically, DIGIFAST ONE ensures greater productivity, much less waste and very little downtime between jobs. Visitors have been able to admire the key advantages DIGIFAST ONE offers over all competitor solutions:

HIGH SPEED: 90m/min. running speed with fully operational S/R print and die-cutting register mode. Whereas S/R die-cutting alone will reach higher speeds, 90m/min. achieved by DIGIFAST is the best performance for S/R printing and die-cutting on the market.

FLASH PASS: the DIGIFAST ONE is equipped with an in-line inspection unit enabling 100% quality control and zero ink marks at machine stops.

Sales & Marketing Director Chiara Prati explains how “DIGIFAST offers far more than just high speeds. What we have achieved with this revolutionary finishing platform is exceptional. We’re not talking about semi-rotary die-cutting alone when we say it runs at 90 m/min. We’re talking of a fully operational flexo semi-rotary print and die-cutting register mode, running at high speed. We’re also talking of FLASH PASS, our 100% in-line inspection procedure saving valuable processing time, so productivity leaps ahead and costs are consequently reduced while maintaining or even improving quality control.”

 

FUTURA open-platform technology reaches LABELEXPO 6 months after its debut in Dubai

FUTURA is a scalable architecture concept that makes a machine ready for present and future market requirements, HRWD (Human Resource and Workforce Development Education), SFTW and READY FOR DIGITAL, to fully comply the norms of the Industry 4.0. Introduced earlier in 2017, it is destined to maximise the flexibility of PRATI finishing equipment and support customers in increasing their business opportunities in the easiest and most competitive way. Designed to revolutionise the approach to performance upgrades, the FUTURA open-platform technology will become the standard-setting concept for new generation finishing equipment manufactured by PRATI.

According to Chiara Prati, Sales & Marketing Director at the Italian company: “FUTURA is a truly significant step ahead and will become a key concept for our new generation of finishing platforms. Such flexibility is like a life assurance policy. Your initial investment is always right because you’re acquiring one machine today which becomes 2, 3 or even 4-machines-in-1, tomorrow”.

Compared to today’s standards, this unique open-platform technology enables an unlimited number of instant upgrades to safeguard the initial investment. It allows converters to adapt immediately to a fast-moving market. With FUTURA, on-site upgrades are available. Downtime is kept to a minimum and a 24-hour stoppage is enough to upgrade what once required 6 days to accomplish.

12 different finishing solutions on show at the company booth

Now available with FUTURA technology, the Saturn OMNIA is the sole market solution that handles SA labels, flexible packaging, A4 sheets, wet glue labels and IML – one of the fastest-growing label type in today’s market. Visitors learned how much easier it has become, thanks to the versatility of this machine, to envisage moving into new business areas with no increase in their initial investment. Another favourite in the extensive range, the STAR Plus in line with a VEGA Plus converting platform has been in action accomplishing a real customer job. The VEGA Plus BKL demonstrates its mastery of precision with booklets and coupons, and the JUPITER 670, the company’s mid-web finishing solution has been attracting narrow-web converters who are looking to enter the packaging market as well as wide-web converters coming to terms with an increasing demand for mass customisation.

 

PRATI is hosting a Virtual Reality experience with giveaway VR glasses

One of the attractions which is pulling the crowds at the PRATI booth revolves around Virtual Reality. Together with experts in the field of VR, PRATI has developed a unique experience representing a label as it transits a PRATI finishing platform. Visitors wearing a set of VR glasses, which they take home with them at the end of the session, enjoy a sensational trip through some of the latest technologies in converting created by PRATI.

Chiara Prati told the press: “We are overjoyed by the reaction visitors are having to our latest developments. Clearly the investments made in research and new technologies have been rewarded. Key market players are constantly praising us for the intelligent solutions we are releasing to enable superior performance, increased efficiency and a sensible approach to cost management. I believe one important factor is our acute awareness of market trends. We listen to what customers ask for and provide appropriate solutions at all levels. As the tradeshow comes to a close, I can only say that it’s been yet another huge success!”

Xeikon launches new Xeikon CX500 digital label press
at Labelexpo Europe

Based on new generation dry toner platform ready for Industry 4.0

 

At Labelexpo Europe, Xeikon introduced the new Xeikon CX500 digital label press, the first press based on a new generation dry toner platform that is ready for Industry 4.0. For larger sized labels, labels requiring an opaque white or an extended colour gamut, the Xeikon CX500 outperforms all high-quality digital label presses in terms of productivity, thanks to its web width of up to 520mm (20.47"), full rotary printing technology and 30m/min (98ft/min) printing speed. The wide web Xeikon CX500 is part of Xeikon dry toner Cheetah Series serving the high-end self-adhesive label market, and it complements the narrow-web Xeikon CX3 which has been very successfully adopted since its introduction in 2015.

“With the launch of the Xeikon CX500, we are demonstrating our ongoing commitment to further development of dry toner technology for the print and packaging industries, ready for the future. It is the most productive digital label press in the high-quality class thanks to its combination of high speed and wider web. The ability to produce larger labels is particularly important with end-use applications such as labels for household products, pet food, decoration, etc.” states Filip Weymans, VP Global Marketing, Xeikon. “At the same time, we continue to support the entry-level Xeikon 3000 Series dry toner label presses, which are complementary to our high-end Cheetah Series.”

all pack 83 XEI pr17028 Xeikon CX500

Build for the future

Xeikon’s new generation dry toner platform has been designed around four key values that differentiate it in the marketplace, and sets a new milestone in the digital press landscape.

Intuitive operator interactivity: the new operator interface features both interactivity and connectivity, making it extremely easy to use. It signals when operator intervention is required, allows ease of servicing for field engineers, includes a wiki database with online answers to support questions, and has a “Media Buddy” that guides operators with respect to substrate qualification. Operators can quickly define and implement optimal settings with this innovative Industry 4.0 man/machine interface

Consistent top-notch quality: expansion of the development unit ensures consistent top-notch quality and uniformity across the wider web width at high speeds and high resolution (1200 dpi)

Reliable best in class uptime: dry toner is a proven technology that has always been, and will remain, a very reliable technology. It uses no solvents or inks that can impact the performance as is the case with other technologies, and has less impact on the production environment. In addition, it features longer lasting components and ensures efficiency for both operators and service technicians

Unbeatable productivity: enhancements in the developing unit, the fuser system, material conditioning for more capacity, and much more in the development of this brand-new platform, make it the most productive digital label press in the high-quality class

Just like the Xeikon CX3, the Xeikon CX500 runs on Cheetah toner, which is based on Xeikon’s award-winning ICE technology and is designed specifically to cope with the higher speed. It ensures a reliable and proven printing process operating at 1200 dpi, that meets FDA regulations for food contact and allows to print on standard label materials without the need pre-treatment, including direct thermal papers, BoPP, PE and Co-Extruded films. As with all Xeikon presses, the Xeikon CX500 is driven by the Xeikon X-800 digital front-end which is unmatched in enabling consistent print quality in combination with industry-leading productivity for label production. The Xeikon CX500 continues the Xeikon tradition, built on nearly 25 years of experience in digital printing, of developing presses and workflow solutions that deliver high quality and exceptional uptime.

“This introduction extends the Xeikon dry toner digital label production portfolio from the entry-level Xeikon 3000 Series presses through to the high-end Xeikon Cheetah Series which includes the Xeikon CX3 and the Xeikon CX500. This places digital label printing within reach of label converters of all sizes. We are looking forward to hearing what visitors to our stand have to say about this expanded portfolio, and how it will help them in their decision process as they add or extend digital label printing capabilities,” concludes Weymans.

Redefine safety with Tamper - evident Labelling

 all pack 83 Avery Dennison PR371

Even in a world that has become increasingly virtual and digital, safeguarding the physical integrity of some products has never been more important. The need to protect the safety of pharmaceutical products has risen in recent years, and Avery Dennison, which has been pioneering change for decades, has developed a portfolio of materials designed to reduce packaging falsification and tampering in the pharmaceutical sector.

“Drug counterfeiting is a major global problem. Patient safety is compromised by product manipulation and substitution, and manufacturers can experience damage to their brand image, sales, and revenue,” explained Gabriela Gregor, Avery Dennison’s project manager for pharmaceutical labelling. “Our products can change the game in protecting patient safety and safeguarding manufacturer reputation.”

One key product range in the portfolio is the Tamper-evident Seal Range, which, when combined with newly formulated adhesive S799P, makes tampering with cartons more difficult, and eases compliance with the EU Medicine Directive 2011/62/EU, which is designed to prevent “falsified medicines” from entering the legal prescription supply chain, and also applies to some over-the-counter products.

The Tamper-evident Seal Range joined several other innovative product collections at Labelexpo, and was featured as part of the “Change The Game” zone along with products incorporating RFID UHF and NFC wireless technologies.
