Brazilian label converter Megalabel has invested in a new SPS2 flexo press with servo motor, the fourth Etirama machine installed at its production plant in Sao Paolo, to expand its printing capabilities.
Megalabel was formed by Marcio Romano in 2008 when he inherited a family-owned business Etiquetas Romano from his grandfather, Fernando Romano. His business, established in 1950, was a pioneer in the sector and became one of the leading printers in Brazil.
Márcio Romano has already negotiated more than 15 machines with Etirama and opted for the precision of the Etirama SPS2 model, which is equipped with servomotors in its transmission system. The company, which already operates three units of this model, will receive the fourth one with an expanded configuration with 12 colors.
The SPS2 offers the implementation of servo motors in the transmission system to add more technological resources, including remote technical support via the internet. The new press also features in-feed and out-feed synchronization with servo motors, manual or electronic printing register adjustment, controlled by a touch panel, 360-degree rotation of the plate cylinder, and quick anilox changeover. The SPS2 also features a coil lifter with movement support, a rail for cold stamping, silkscreen printing, lamination, and a production speed of up to 150m/min.
The SPS2 servo press was launched two years ago and already had more than 30 units sold and installed in ten countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Peru, Guatemala, Mexico, Spain, Nigeria, Uganda, United Arab Emirates and Russia.
