Uflex invests in Edale narrow web flexo press for production of security labels
Uflex, India’s largest flexible packaging converter, has purchased a 10-color Edale FL3 flexo press to produce security labels.
Uflex’s new FL3 is has a 350mm web width, 10 flexo color stations, IST UV drying system including three hot air dryers, motorized print impression, anilox pressure and cross register control system, a rail mounted peel and reveal module, and a vacuum delivery table.
Uflex has purchased the FL3 to produce security labels, making it important to invest in an option that would deliver sustained quality and ensure high reliability. Edale’s experience in vacuum collating conveyors was a huge benefit when making the selection.
To guarantee reliability and repeatability, Uflex has elected to motorize the X and Y register as well as all the pressure settings, which will allow the future upgrade to Edale’s AiiR technology.
Edale’s agent in India is Printers Supply Company, led by Amitabh Luthra. Uflex is an existing Edale customer having purchased a press from the UK manufacturer around six years ago.
Edale sales and marketing director Darren Pickford commented: ‘This new press order from Uflex is a testament to Edale’s continued commitment to the Indian market and is a valued addition to our growing machine install base within the region. We are proud that a company of the size and stature of Uflex values the support and quality of equipment offered by Edale, we are excited to continue working with the company and look forward to being part of its continued growth.’
