Heartland Label Printers, located in Little Chute, Wisconsin, has purchased a second Cohesio machine from ETI Converting Equipment to support the continued growth of its pressure-sensitive label business.
Heartland Label Printers was founded in 1990 and produces a wide variety of direct thermal, thermal transfer and specialty labels, focusing heavily on the logistic and grocery industries. Heartland is also growing in medical, food and other market spaces as it continues to invest in new capabilities and advanced technology.
Heartland’s second Cohesio is equipped with flexo printing stations, adhesive and silicone coating stations, as well as ETI’s patented Pellicut die-cutting technology. This die-cutting unit die-cuts on very thin liner materials without marking. The Cohesio machine design is also capable of producing linerless label products.
The acquisition of a second ETI Cohesio machine increases Heartland’s overall capacity and enhances its ability to develop new products and provide better products to customers. The first Cohesio Heartland installed in 2003 runs seven days per week.
This new 22in width machine will be on display at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in September and then installed in Heartland’s Wisconsin facility following the exhibition.
