Argentinean based Mai S.A., founded in the 1970’s, manufacture tea bag packaging machines, with a separate department in which they print tea bag tags, labels and envelopes. This month sees them install their fifth Edale FL-1 press in under three years.
MAI S.A first came in to contact with Edale in 2011 when Mr Guillermo Mai, President of Mai S.A, began looking into new printing machines. Having researched the Edale product range, Mr Mai decided that the FL-1 was the most appropriate for their business needs and they haven’t looked back since!
After the initial press purchase; 2012 saw Mr Mai contact Edale again to purchase a further two presses with 2014 seeing him purchase his fourth and fifth. Mr Mai says “We initially chose an Edale FL-1 because of its versatility, and the capability to adapt to our width of paper band. Our jobs need versatile, compact machines, as we print a lot of different tags in short runs”, he continues “as our business has continued to grow, the FL-1’s have proved ideal; great quality print and well-engineered presses.”
The presses which stand at a compact 2.5m2, are all of the same spec – four colour with water based drying, and a unique 1.2m freestanding unwind.
