Specialist company AMF Etiquetas, one of the market leaders in Chile, offering a wide range of high-end labels and packaging for the local wine, food and packaging companies, has invested in a Focus dFlex press to expand digital printing capabilities.
Chile is the fourth largest exporter and the first exporter of bottled wine in the new world; therefore, AMF Etiquetas contributes to the local wine industry by advising on design trends and the latest materials used in this segment of labels and packaging.
The installation of the new dFlex press from Focus Label Machinery compliments the company’s commitment to the other digital processes that it offers, which includes HP and Xeikon presses as well as traditional flexo, offset, screen and foil equipment.
The installation was completed in May 2022. Investing in the Focus dFlex UV inkjet system enables AMF to explore the practicalities of adding customized and variable data to many generic product lines. The company will potentially roll out the new dFlex system to other locations close to the wineries to improve distribution and processing speed.
AMF has also invested in the Print and Packaging Centre, a digital laboratory with state-of-the-art technology coupled with a specialist team of experts aiming to introduce personalized designs and bring together technology for mockups and packaging concepts to be presented and brought to reality faster.
