Vinsak has announced the installation of a new ABG Digicon Series 3 at Astron Packaging Industry’s Dubai plant.

Digicon Series 3 systems are modular in design and can be tailored to meet individual needs. Astron has added two complete semi-rotary flexo units with GEW UV system, spot varnishing feature, cold foil/lamination and super gloss unit, matrix rewind, slitting unit, dual rewinder from the options available in the digital finishing equipment.  
 
The semi-rotary die-cutting system runs at the speed of 150 meters per minute and works in line with the fast digital print engines. 
 
The company began its operations in the UAE in 2019 with the installation of a Lombardi Synchroline press and after adding a digital system, immediately felt the need to add a finishing line. Based on its positive experience of installing multiple ABG lines in its India plant, Astron decided to install the latest Digicon Series 3 for its UAE facility.  
 
Ross Hollaway, sales manager for India and the Middle East, added: ‘We are very happy that Astron Packaging has reinforced their relationship with ABG with this new kit. Along with Malkhan Ram of Vinsak, this sale has re-inforced our teamwork in opening up a new series of equipment that Label printers in the region would find very useful in expanding their product offerings.’  
 
ABG has a global installation base of 11000 machines and more than 2500 customers. In India, the install base is over 150 including Digicon Series 2 and 3 digital finishing systems, turrets, booklet makers, slitter re-winders, camera systems and Turret re-winders.
