Dutch offset printing specialist Contiweb will demonstrate how converters can enhance the operations and expand profit margins with the Contiweb Thallo press at Labelexpo Europe 2019.
The new equipment designed for rapid sleeve changeovers allows the creation of new plates in a matter of minutes, increasing productivity and enabling quick reactions to brand owners’ marketing campaigns.
Thallo is equipped with a web tension control system, able to print on paper, cardboard, in-mold labels, wraparound labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging. The press offers variable cut-off dimensions and the option to print grids and block colors side-by-side. It is engineered on a modular in-line platform; therefore, it is fully compatible with all flexo and rotogravure systems.
‘Whilst web offset adoption for flexible packaging is still in its infancy, the Contiweb Thallo delivers an exceptional competitive edge, plus variable web widths essential to packaging printers,’ said Erik Andriessen, marketing manager at Contiweb. ‘As the world's largest event for the label and package printing industry, Labelexpo Europe 2019 is the ideal platform to showcase how print businesses can maintain a competitive edge and enjoy a healthy margin with our flagship solution,’ he concluded.
