India-based printer Prakash Labels has purchased an Edale FL3 to enhance production of self-adhesive labels for product identification.
Based in Noida, Prakash Labels is regarded as one of the largest manufacturers of self-adhesive labels for product identification. It is an ISO 9001-2015 certified, privately owned company that was founded in 1993.
The machine it has specified is a fully automated, 430mm-wide, 10-color FL3 with a label and film pack. The FL3 also features Edale’s AiiR technology for autonomous print register control, which includes automatic register set-up and continuous register monitoring in X and Y directions. The machine also includes Edale’s new EZ Die quick change converting system that facilitates a full tool change in less than 60 seconds.
Prakash Labels will be using the machine for self-adhesive labels with cold foil, unsupported films and also some board materials for pharmaceutical industries.
Prakash Labels was first introduced to Edale by Edale’s agent Printer Supplies and after visiting for a demonstration was reported as 'very impressed' by the versatility of the FL3.
Dinesh Mahajan, managing director at Prakash Labels, commented: ‘After visiting the Edale factory we were extremely impressed by the machine capabilities and the fact we could run various substrates with ease. The Edale team were very professional and worked hard to suit all our requirements.’
Darren Pickford, Edale sales and marketing director, said: ‘We were up against some strong competition and Prakash’s Labels testing procedures were very demanding, so this was a true vindication on the FL3 performance and also the dedication from Edale’s staff in satisfying Prakash during the full and thorough testing.
‘Prakash is seen as an industry leader and, with its investment in a new building and infrastructure, will give Edale a truly outstanding reference site in North India. Whilst our competitors continue to offer older technology our commitment to only offering latest designs and automation to a fast-growing market has seen the Edale brand recognized as an industry leader and this order only goes to prove this is the right philosophy.’
The machine is due to be installed later this year.
