Italian label converter Indet has invested in an Omet XJet 420 printing press to expand its capacity and introduce hybrid production capabilities.
Indet, based in Gallarate, specializes in self-adhesive, shrink sleeve, and booklet labels supplying international clients in a wide range of end-user markets, including food, beverage, cosmetics, chemical, mechanical, and electronics.
The latest investment in a hybrid printing machine will allow the printer to create short just-in-time runs of customized labels but also to combine the two technologies, enhancing the potential of Durst digital printing and traditional Omet printing.
The machine features the benefits of digital technology, such as immediacy, variable data, personalization, and high uptime, along with new high-performance features such as in-line integration of finishing and converting units. Additionally, Omet flexo stations enable primers and special varnishes application, Pantone or metalized color printing, compensating for today’s digital technology limitations.
‘We are very satisfied with this agreement, and we believe that Indet has made the best choice. This is an important goal also for Omet as it’s the first hybrid machine we install in Lombardy,’ commented Roberto Speri, key account manager at Omet. ‘I thank Adriano Gozzi and Franco Mason for believing in our technology. We are proud of it. This machine will be a point of reference for interesting future developments.’
