Pharmaceutical labels specialist CV Labels has invested in an SRI Omega inkjet press from A B Graphic International (ABG) portfolio to reduce lead times and further increase security.
The machine, configured for the pharmaceutical market, includes a Rea Jet HR inkjet system to allow multi-lane coding in high resolution, ABG’s integrated fleyeVision 4k 100 percent inspection system with complete touchscreen operation and barcode and numbering modules.
Both ABG and CV Labels have a 30-year history of collaboration, which began with their first machine, an Onda letterpress, and more recently, investments in a number of slitter/rewinders.
‘We have had a highly productive relationship with ABG for many years and value its machines for their quality and longevity,’ said Bob Veich, managing director of CV Labels. ‘With an increase in the number of our customers requiring consecutive numbering as standard across their labels, together with ever-increasing regulation in our industry, we have future-proofed our offering.
‘The new Omega press with the variety of added modules is the perfect choice for us. It will enable us to reduce lead times and increase security to an even higher level, as it inspects the printed web with a high-resolution camera and prints consecutive numbers or codes simultaneously. The Rea Jet HR Inkjet system has six heads configured to allow multi-lane coding in high resolution.’
‘I have personally worked with CV Labels for 29 years and I am delighted to see our relationship continuing to flourish,’ commented Mark Hyde, ABG’s sales manager for the UK, Ireland and Australasia. ‘Given their glowing reputation in pharmaceutical, healthcare and medical label manufacture, I know how important production quality is to them. The Pharma SRI, together with its coding and numbering modules is ideal for their needs and I look forward to continuing to support their future growth and development.’
