S-OneLP thermal laminator installed in Australia

S-OneLP thermal laminator installed in Australia

S-One Labels & Packaging has sold a thermal lamination system to a label and flexible packaging converter in Australia, marking the first such installation in the region.

The converter installed a 30-inch (760mm) Cellcoat T-Series thermal laminator in February to enhance label and flexible packaging jobs coming off its fleet of HP Indigo digital presses.

The converter uses digital technology to produce self-adhesive labels and has recently entered the flexible packaging market, producing pouches for a range of verticals including the food and beverage, and health and beauty markets.

The company chose the Cellcoat T-30 thermal laminator to create pouches that require zero cure time. According to S-OneLP, speed to market, flexible run lengths, high-quality and personalized printing are critical to the converter’s success.

Gerard Geurts, business development and technical sales for the EMEA region at S-OneLP, calls this installation an ‘industry shift’ for flexible packaging production.

‘T-Series thermal laminators are quite exciting technology for label and flexible packaging companies that want to grow their revenue streams and expand into new markets. We’re seeing a lot more converters use thermal lamination after realizing the benefits of an instant cure that allows for immediate slitting and pouching, and a shorter time to market. The T-Series’ accurate tension control and high-speed capacity make this ideal for digital labels and flexible package printing and converting, especially when speed to market and minimal material waste is crucial,’ said Geurts.

The T-Series thermal laminators are engineered with in-line corona treater, lay-on roller, chill roller, edge alignment, and in-line slitting. The machines are available in widths from 14 inches (350mm) to 43 inches (1,100mm).

S-OneLP is the exclusive distributor of the Cellcoat T-Series thermal lamination systems in North America, EMEA, Australia, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.
