UK-based AM Labels has installed new Daco FLX350 flexographic label press to expand its in-house label production capacity, streamline procedures and enhance its capabilities.
Designed to simplify the printing process and increase accuracy, the Daco FLX350 incorporates servo control of the printing and cutting stations and touch screen computer control of most of its functions. The machine can deliver high volume print jobs with the cut to register facility that enables black mark labels to be produced with an accuracy of 0.25 mm.
Tony Mariani, managing director of AM Labels said: ‘The investment in the new Daco FLX350 will help to satisfy the demand for high volume, single color labels to support the growing sales of thermal and color label printers. We already offer a wide range of blank labels to purchase via our website, however, the new label press will enable us to launch a new range of colored labels, also known as tinted or color washed.
‘The addition of the new Daco will be a huge benefit to all our customers as the new machine is ideal for the production of black mark labels for color printers including the Epson C7500, the Afinia L801 and the OKI Pro 1050.’
The new machine offers reduced set-up times and increased print speeds to expand AM Labels’ capacity. It has a water-based ink system the company will use for low cost tinted labels and UV based printing system designed for durable print where water and chemical resistance is imperative.
‘We are continually investing in our print operation to ensure that we offer our customers the very highest quality and most cost-effective labels,’ said David Lee, production manager at AM Labels. ‘In addition to being flexible, efficient and economical, the Daco FLX350 maintains an exceptionally high print quality while minimizing material waste, making it an ideal investment for the company.
‘We are committed to raising standards for our customers and, as we look towards the future in the dynamic industry in which we operate, this newest addition to our wide ranging portfolio will enable us to extend our in-house offering and ensure that we can both respond to, and exceed, the ever-evolving consumer demand across a wide range of industries and applications,’ concluded Lee.
