BST eltromat and Printum have extended their partnership to the new Concept_17 generation of printing machines, debuting at Labelexpo Europe 2017.
Concept_17 is a new generation of digital multi-web printing machines from Printum. They allow for flexible configuration in the manufacture of various multi-layer labels. The digital printing machines of the Concept_17 generation can be configured with different options, such as a flexo print unit or rotary die-cutting.
Concept_17 machines feature quality assurance systems from BST eltromat, such as a CompactGuide web guiding system installed behind the rewinder to guarantee the passage of the webs through the machine. TubeScan digital strobe++ 330 web monitoring and inspection system, developed by BST eltromat’s partner Nyquist Systems, monitors the quality of the manufactured labels. Depending on customers’ quality assurance requirements, Printum can also integrate the modular POWERScope 5000 digital web monitoring system in its machines.
Bernd Leising, managing director at Printum, said: ‘We have come to know BST eltromat’s technology as being especially reliable. We’ve been relying exclusively on the manufacturer’s web guiding systems and unwinder control components since 2000. To this day, not a single CompactGuide has failed on any of our machines, no matter what amount of stress they’re exposed to.’
Arno Vogelhuber, BST eltromat area sales manager, and who is responsible for the Printum relationship, added: ‘Printum builds intelligent machines for especially demanding customers, whose quality requirements consistently present new challenges for our company, such as in the field of sensor systems. As a result, our partnership has been very fruitful for both companies.’
Printum develops multi-web converting options for multilayer labels and special applications, such as booklets and sandwich labels, smart labels with RFID and EAS, and security features.
At Labelexpo Europe 2017, Printum also presents a new longitudinal cutter and a triple crossover unit.
