Spanish label printer TEA Adhesivos Industriales has heavily invested in digital printing and label finishing equipment with a triple purchase to make an entry into short run label market and improve its booklet labels capabilities.
The company purchased Screen Truepress Jet L350UV and two machines from Rotocontrol: Ecoline RDF-350 digital label converting and finishing system and Ecoline RSH-440 for booklet inspection. The deal was secured during Labelexpo Europe 2019, through Santiago Pérez of Rotocon Europe and all three machines are now installed and in full production.
TEA expanded into booklet label production in 2017 purchasing a Rotocontrol BL-series booklet label machine fully equipped with a flexo unit, Longford International OS700X triple motor surge feeder, glue applicator, lamination in registration and die cutting unit.
‘Following the installation of the most complete booklet printing machine in the Spanish market was an increased demand for booklet inspection,’ said Alejandro Trigueros, managing director of TEA Adhesivos Industriales. ‘We again turned to Rotocontrol for its Ecoline RSH as our dedicated machine designed specifically for booklet inspection. For a multilayer product that can reach over a hundred pages, we required a specialized inspection machine that Rotocontrol tailor-made for TEA.’
The converter is also making an entry into short-run digital label printing with the purchase of a Screen Truepress Jet L350UV inkjet label press, to increase service to their customers with a system that offers a range of inkjet label applications and quick turnaround. It is complimented with the newly installed Rotocontrol RDF-350 system, which provides fast converting and finishing.
‘Both Rotocontrol Ecoline investments provide TEA with reliable, fast job setup equipment at an affordable price,’ concluded Trigueros.
