Heaford shows Label AutoMounter at Labelexpo

Heaford’s Label AutoMounter

UK-based gravure proofing equipment manufacturer JM Heaford will showcase its Label AutoMounter at Labelexpo Europe 2019.

The Label AutoMounter has the capability to mount any plate in less than one minute with an accuracy of five microns. The series of automated processes eliminate the need for skilled operators; therefore, it is an ideal equipment for larger label producers running round-the-clock with multiple presses. The plate mounting process is maintained via a user-friendly graphic interface which also enables storing and easily recalling up to 100,000 jobs.

The Heaford stand will also feature the semi-automated system, FTS plate mounter, characterized with speed and ease of operation. Three mounters, two for cylinder and one sleeve dedicated, will be exhibited with options including pre-register systems, precision plate cutter, rotary plate cutter, pivoting tape applicator and fixed/rear tape applicator options.

The company will also present its entry-level EES plate mounter, designed mostly for start-ups and converters looking for the next step up in mounting speed and precision. 

‘Labelexpo continues to be a unique and unmissable opportunity for JM Heaford to showcase the extent of our solutions to an ever-widening audience,’ commented Sally-Anne Heaford, managing director of JM Heaford. ‘The breadth of production and technical requirements among international visitors makes it the perfect event to highlight the efficiency gains available for every size of company, whatever their level of technology.

‘Each Heaford system is designed with one over-arching goal: to deliver the maximum ease-of-use, accuracy and repeatability in their class. But you don’t just need to take our word for it; ask us about user experience in any corner of the global market and we can point to another satisfied customer and the Heaford system they would never be without.’

JM Heaford team members will conduct live demonstrations of the equipment at stand 7D33.
