Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) based printer, Modern Propak, has opted for a 370mm wide 10-color Omet iFlex press exhibited at Labelexpo India 2018.

A bottle manufacturer, this is company’s first investment in a flexo press to cater to its existing customers.

Raj Kunwar S Dua, proprietor at Modern Propack, said: ‘The press will be shipped to the factory in November right after the show. Equipped with chill drums, peal and seal unit, cold foil, delam, relam, web turnbar, sheeter conveyor, and two die-stations, this kit will mainly be used to print pressure-sensitive and shrink sleeve labels to cater to agro-chemical and liquor market segments.’

Kanwardeep Sahni, managing director at Weldon Celloplast, said, ‘Modern Propak is a new entrant in the labels industry but has been a packaging player. This is an extension of their product portfolio and they wanted the best equipment in the market. This is the fourth Omet iFlex that Weldon Celloplast will install in India. The first three have been running at Huhtamaki Webtech, Insight Graphics, and Orianaa Decorpack.'

Omet is demonstrating chill drums for printing filmic applications as well as a peal and seal unit for printing multi-layer labels at Labelexpo India.

Other exhibits at Weldon Celloplast’s stand include a range of flexible and magnetic dies from Lartec, Spilker’s MicroGap anvil for micro gap adjustments to enable fine die-cutting and enhancing die life, and Luster inspection technology. Brotech Graphic from China is exhibit a DL330 die-cutting machine suitable for in-mold labels, label finishing, converting, and quality inspection.
