UK-based Springfield Solutions has installed a JetFx - DigiJet module from print finishing specialists, A B Graphic International, to extend the range of its label embellishment capabilities.
ABG has successfully integrated the JetFx - DigiJet with Springfield’s existing Digicon Series 3 finishing press. The installation of the new module, initially purchased at Labelexpo Europe in September 2019, was delayed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
‘We are delighted to have the JetFx - DigiJet module finally installed. And having it retrofitted over a weekend to allow for social distancing, was easily the best install ever,’ said Matt Dass, joint managing director at Springfield Solutions.
‘The module will enable Springfield to create amazing varnish and foil effects, tactile finishes, embossing and debossing,’ added Dass. ‘Being perfect for short runs, our digital package offers no tooling costs, variable data, personalization and dramatically reduced lead times. It’s a perfect fit that will open many doors to all our customers.’
As a digital embellishment module, JetFx - DigiJet gives an offline, fully digital system allowing for multiple processes in one pass, including spot varnishing, cold foiling and tactile screen. Its main features include two inkjet heads with UV pinning and UV curing, automated cold foil throw-off, a shuttle system for inspection and waste reduction, chill rollers for sensitive materials, pre-press software and food compliant fluids.
‘Springfield has been a valued ABG customer for many years and we look forward to seeing the results of its investment in the future,’ commented Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director. ‘The JetFx - DigiJet module shows that ABG has the ability and expertise to provide a finishing options that work seamlessly with all technologies within the digital label print environment, whilst adapting to meet the requirements of all consumer label markets.’
