The machine, which will be the first of its type fitted with laser die-cutting in Argentina, is equipped with multiple silkscreen, hot stamping and embossing units. The silkscreen units can be operated as a separate machine or together inline with the finishing stations.
The Cartes machine can be used as a printer in its own right as well as providing a wide range of finishing options. It can apply holograms and lamination and prints on a variety of substrates. It also prints Braille.
Luis Maria Garcia, president of Multilabel, said: ‘The machine will bring us a great competitive advantage, particularly in the wine market, where we have some 60 clients in Argentina and Brazil, and also in the healthcare sector. Laser technology gives opportunities for cutting complicated perforations and designs.’
Mario Lodi, CEO of Cartes, said: ‘We are delighted that a prestigious label company such as Multilabel is investing in our technology. The installation of a machine with this configuration in Argentina is very important to us; even more so when done with one of the country’s leading converters. We are very proud of this sale.’
Before being installed at Multilabel’s plant, the machine will be shown at Argentina Gráfica tradeshow in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on the stand of Cartes’ distributor for the country, ATR.
