Kalabarchasb install seventh Edale press

Kalabarchasb, a successful label printer based in Tehran, have recently installed their sixth and seventh Edale flexo printing presses with the introduction of two new Edale Alphas.

With business going from strength to strength, Kalabarchasb have earnt a strong position in the label market: Back in 1992, Kalabarchasb purchased three Edale machines from the older product range; an E180 and two E250’s. As business grew, so did the number of machines and 2008 and 2009 saw them purchase a Beta and an Alpha before purchasing a further two Alphas in 2010 – bringing the total number of Edale machines up to seven!

The award-winning Alpha is Edale’s compact flexographic printing press, capable of converting a wide variety of labels, packaging and ticketing substrates, boasting a short web path of just 12m, compact design of 2.5m2 and quick job change through ease of access.

The Beta is Edale’s versatile modular press, with the capacity to incorporate up to 14 print stations and three converting stations, with the modular design allowing for simple upgrades and a host of value added options to be retrofitted.

Kalabarchasb, a family business, run by owner Mr Mahboobi and his two sons have a strong relationship with UK press manufacturer, Edale, which goes back a long way with Bernhard Grob, Edale’s Export Director and Mr Mahboobi, meeting at an exhibition over 20 years ago. Since then, the Kalabarchasb team have visited Edale on numerous occasions to receive in-depth technical training, ensuring that they are completely up to speed with the Edale presses that they operate.

Mr Mahboobi says “I first got to know of Edale at a show they were exhibiting at in Tehran, we had never really considered looking at compact flexo presses then, but were impressed with the machines and the solutions that Edale could offer. That is when we purchased our first E180, and E250. Even now, these machines are still in production!

However as technology has moved forward, so have we and this is where the introduction of the newer Edale presses came in - we find the Alpha and Beta models so powerful, fast and with 100% quality and accuracy capabilities.”
