AB Graphic International has supplied a Digicon Series 2 label converting line to Kingsway Printers of Humberston, Lincs. The system will be used to process a variety of substrates printed on the company’s newly installed HP WS4500 digital printer.


Richard Pullan, Managing Director of Kingsway Printers said, “We have purchased label converting equipment from AB Graphic International in the past and HP recommended their Digicon Series 2 for this installation. The new converting line has enabled us to enter the digital label market and we will soon be offering variable data plus unsupported film and carton work.
Kingsway Printers was originally formed in 1972 as a commercial printing company and subsequently moved into label production with the installation of narrow web, UV flexo equipment. The company supplies labels to the cosmetics, food, beverage, household, industrial and health and beauty markets where it is seeing increasing demand for short runs, frequent design changes and reduced stock.
The 330mm Omega Digicon supplied includes varnishing, die cutting, servo driven nip roller and UV flexo station. “We print and convert a wide range of substrates including paper, metallic, PE, PP and vinyl and have found the accuracy of the die cutting and re-register on the Digicon impressive, added Mr Pullan.
A long established manufacturer of label converting systems, AB Graphic International operates on a world-wide basis from its UK headquarters in Bridlington, East Yorkshire. The company is well placed to provide full sales and support globally through a network of established distributors and its facilities in the USA, France, Germany, Spain, and The Netherlands.
