Spanish Group Argraf installs 10-colour Omet X-Flex 430

Argraf Group, one of the leading Spanish and European label converting groups for the food and beverage market, with a particular interest in the wine sector, has recently installed a 10-colour OMET X-Flex 430, fitted with three rotary die cutting units. ‘The investment was driven by rapid growth within the company’s adhesive wine label sector,’ explained Martin Torroba, General Manager of the Group, which has turned to this half-hybrid machine technology where units of different print techniques are combined to give a wide range of production capabilities. ‘We have configured it precisely to meet our actual needs, with screen, coldfoil and plastic coating, but no offset,’ he added. Acknowledged for the past three years as the best machine in the world for its special capability, the OMET X-Flex 430 is extremely and can also be used for small runs of containers and polyethylene, propylene products, without the use of an adhesive. It has an upper rail system for mounting the three coldfoil stamping units, the turner bars for reverse printing, the unit for printing on the adhesive, the rotary screen unit, and the relief/embossing unit. The machine is also equipped with the automatic register system called VISION (patented by Omet) that provides pre-register and the automatic longitudinal and transversal adjustment without intervention by the operator. ‘This X-Flex 430 is highly customised,’ explained Enric Pont of OMET Iberica, ‘and allows the Argraf Group to maintain the high quality and added value levels that today’s advanced technology offers.’
