GIDUE stages permanent open house to coincide with drupa

For Drupa, Nuova GIDUE S.r.l., the Italian manufacturer of printing and converting machines for the Labels and Packaging industry, has organized an exclusive “Permanent Open House” in Florence from the 3rd to the 18th of May 2012.  Federico d’Annunzio, MD, comments: “As usual, Drupa will attract a lot of people from our industry as most specialists in the graphic market will be in Europe to see all the newest trends in our sector. Gidue is excited to welcome visitors to its own event showcasing some interesting solutions specially designed for the label and flexible packaging markets. Dedicated demos can be organized on the Master M5 630 Digital Flexo press, in line with GIDUE’s totally new development - the Master SL 630 Solvent-Less Laminator. The combination of UV Flexo and in-line solvent-less lamination is potentially revolutionary for the flexible packaging market. The solution virtually eliminates the risk of ink migration as it avoids any contact of UV inks with the reel (and with the food), by ‘protecting‘ the UV printed surface with a laminated film before winding. Label converters, well aware of UV flexo technology, could easily enter the lucrative short-run flexible packaging market, with a limited ‘learning curve’, and provide excellent UV flexo print quality.

During the Open House other flexo lines will be available for demo including the ten-colour Master M5 for unlimited substrates, Master M5 dedicated to aluminum pharma blister packs, Combat M3 for labels and sleeves and the new entry level M1x for labels.
