Anglia Labels, based in Suffolk, UK, has installed a Daco DF350SR to complement the recent installation of a 5-color Domino N610i UV inkjet label press.
Anglia Labels was formed in 1979 and runs a variety of presses including UV flexo, letterpress and toner-based digital. It operates across a wide range of industries that include industrial, agrochemical, chemical, food and drink, retail, automotive, security, household and the medical industry.
Ian Woodhead, managing director of Anglia Labels, visited Daco Solutions to discuss the finishing options that Daco could offer. While at the factory, a site visit to Beverley-based Applied Label Solutions was arranged to see a Daco DF350SR in operation.
During the factory visit, Mark Laurence, Daco sales manager discussed the various options. A specification of a machine with a Daco DBS back scorer, RotoMetrics hydrajacks, laminating and spot varnish to register was added to the standard Daco DF350SR semi-rotary die-cutter.
Ian Woodhead commented: ‘Once we had decided to purchase a Domino press then we had to find the right partner for a finishing unit. With over 3,000 semi rotary cutters in our library it was important that we could find a finishing machine that could utilize our cutters. After visiting Labelexpo Europe in Brussels we narrowed our search down to four companies. We were looking for a well-manufactured unit that would serve us well, be robust, offering varnishing and laminating as well as semi-rotary and full-rotary die-cutting, and at the right price, the Daco Solutions ticked all of these boxes.’
Installation of the DF350SR was made in late February to coincide with the installation of the Domino N610i.
Mark Laurence commented: ‘It’s great to have had the opportunity to quote for finishing equipment for Anglia Labels knowing that they already had semi-rotary die-cutters from our competitors. It is the second installation of a Daco 350SR we have sold to complement a Domino N610i series machine. Within a few weeks of installation Anglia Labels ordered a second 350SR from us for installation in November.’
