Offset combination press to help target the wine and spirits market
CS Labels is to install a further Xeikon CX3 digital press, and is to begin beta testing of a CX500 over the coming months.
CS Labels signed up as a beta site for the new Xeikon CX500 at Labelexpo Europe 2017. The additional Xeikon CX3 is to replace CS Labels’ existing Xeikon 3500.
The investments have been made to cope with further growth in demand for digitally printed labels and packaging.
As part of its business process improvement and continuous productivity enhancement ethos, CS Labels has also installed a ‘productivity pack’ for its Grafisk Maskinfabrik converting line and has been asked to beta test the new ‘dashboard control system’ from Xeikon that analyses the print performance of each digital press in detail. The new app from Xeikon offers minute-to-minute updates, and enhances productivity when implemented within a company production framework.
The Grafisk Maskinfabrik DC330 converting line has been future-proofed and optimized for speed and output with the upgrade. The product is a fully integrated converting line for labels that provides UV varnish, die-cutting, slitting and rewinding on one single platform.
These hardware investments follow the appointment of Adam James as operations director of the company.
Simon Smith, CS Labels managing director, commented: ‘We continue to grow, innovate and change in all facets of the business in order to look after our customer base at the highest possible level. Technology is changing rapidly, and businesses can be assured that we’re on top of our game when it comes to selecting the appropriate “tool for the job” that will perfectly harmonize with our processes and people-centered business culture.
‘I’m delighted that 2018 is already a ground-breaking year, however I also look forward to us making more announcements in the coming months.’
