Century Labels has installed a Daco PLD350 semi-automatic turret rewinder at its manufacturing plant in Dubai.
The printer saw the technology at a recent Labelexpo exhibition, before visiting the Daco Solutions production facility to discuss the product range of rotary die-cutters for plain label production. Century Labels also visited some local Daco clients who use the Daco PLD350 for thermal label production.
Century Labels recently purchased a 6-color flexo press from Lombardi Converting Machinery, with some of the label finishing on an existing slitter rewinder said to be ‘taking too long’. In the Daco showroom, the PLD350 was demonstrated rewinding and slitting small rolls efficiently from a flexo press.
The decision was made to purchase the PLD350 and installation planned for late summer. However, with the workload at Century Labels, Daco fast-tracked the planned installation to bring it forward by four weeks. And with only two days training in Dubai, all the operators were fully trained. The PLD350 has enabled Century Labels to quote for jobs that otherwise it would have not been able to produce economically, claimed Daco.
