AB Graphic International has announced the sale of an Omega Digicon Lite finishing line to The Label Makers, Bradford. The system will join a range of existing label converting and finishing lines supplied by AB Graphic International over recent years and will be used to take simple jobs from the company's recently installed, high performance, Omega Digicon Series 2 machine.
"The high specification Omega Digicon Series 2 is equipped with flat bed hot foiling, cold foiling, embossing, screen module and two UV flexo units. These enable the production of a wide range of decorative labels, but make basic jobs less practical. The Digcon Lite will be used to convert simple label jobs for food, food supplements, toiletries and drinks such as those used by micro breweries and free up the high specification model for more sophisticated work.
"The Omega Digicon Series II line is highly specified and this is fantastic for high embellishment drinks and cosmetics labels, but we have a large number of jobs that only require a varnish and die cutting," explains David Webster, Managing Director of The Label Makers. The Digicon Lite has a much shorter web path which means more cost effective production. This coupled with its quick set-up and slitting facilities make it a very good finishing machine."
"The Digicon Lite combines all the basic functions required for varnishing and die cutting labels and is the perfect solution where there are simple converting needs, adds Tony Bell, A B Graphic International. "The standard machine includes flexo station, UV curing, semi rotary die station and razor blade slitting. We can also supply a range of options for this model including over-laminating, electronic dispro, hot air drying and scissor or crush slitting"
