The first GIDUE Combat MX has been installed in Indonesia.
The new MX strategy had an immediate answer at Duta Warna, one of the biggest offset printer in the Indonesian pharmaceutical-packaging industry. The Indonesian customer is a typical offset sheet-fed printer that was trying to enlarge its business by entering the labels market.
In June 2012, GIDUE introduced a new line of press dedicated to start-up labels & packaging companies. With the Combat MX “ready-to-go” configuration, the customer bought with a limited investment an 8-colors UV Flexo 370 mm printing machine with cold foil and die-cutting stations and a high number of printing tools (print and magnetic cylinders, anilox and varnish rollers). The machine offers the famous Flower™ flexo head and a unique ‘no-maintenance’ program: the press requires no maintenance, no operator intervention and no specific greasing.
Thanks to the friendly GIDUE machine, Duta Warna operators have been able to switch easily from offset to flexo, thereby developing a feeling of self-confidence in the labels market.
Mr Ari Aswin Jap, Duta Warna Production Manager, commented: “GIDUE MX was a good investment in terms of quality and price, the press is incredibly handy and the Flower head is a miracle of simplicity and durability. Duta Warna comes from a sheet-fed offset background and, only thanks to GIDUE narrow web inline machine, is now able to convert in one-step process. GIDUE invented a very smart press, we were looking for such a product”.
