The XL220 all-in-one digital label press

Rapid X Digital’s Memjet-powered digital label presses will be exhibited on the stand of its European distributor Impression Technologies Europe as the Australian manufacturer marks the four-ear anniversary of the launch of the X1.

Rapid first released the X1 at Ipex 2010, and since then more than 250 Australian-made machines have been shipped, with a variety of finishing, unwinding and rewinding options.

Roy Burton, managing director of Nottingham-headquartered Impression Technology Europe has confirmed that the Rapid X1 and X2 will be on its stand, along with the Rapid D2 die-cutter/laminator and UW1 unwinder with RW1 rewinder.

‘The past four years has flown by,’ said Rapid-X Digital general manager Nick Mansell. ‘We have continuously improved the features and introduced new models and finishing options..

‘There is a possibility that our new XL220 all-in-one digital label press will make it to London in time for Ipex; there will at least be technical information available on it.’

Ipex 2014 takes place at ExCeL in London across March 24-29.
