Edale will break from convention at this year’s Labelexpo Europe by showcasing an interactive display of its label printing technologies rather than the traditional ‘behind the rope’ label printing display.
James Boughton, MD of Edale, said: ‘Our objective is to give prospective clients the chance to touch, feel and interact with our key technologies. Fundamentally, we all know how to print a quality label so we want to show close-up how this is done with an Edale press. Furthermore, the reason to be at the show is to network with customers and for customers to connect with Edale. By having the stand largely manned by engineers rather than sales people we feel this gives a unique chance for open and productive discussions. Edale is all about listening and developing relationships with customers old and new, this format will create that open, interactive experience that defines Edale and its values’.
The modules displayed include two FL3 430mm width print stations, the first with chilled UV LED and the second with an extended UV chilled web path. The new print station now features more automation as standard (AiiR) which includes motorized inking and impression as well as linear and lateral register control.
Edale will also demonstrate the new EZ Die, enabling operators to change a die tool in less than 60 seconds, including pre-registration of the tool, motorized cross register and pre-setting and automatic waste matrix pick-up.
Located at Edale’s Print Bar will be EFX high-precision UV-based inkjet system designed to digitize print finishing and embellishment in three configurations including digital white, digital cold foil and high build.
