Omet will launch a new press with a 670mm (26in) web width at Labelexpo Europe 2019. The X7 is part of the Italian manufacturer’s XFlex line, and aimed at label and flexible packaging production.
The X7 will be one of three Omet presses on display. These include the new version of the XJet hybrid powered by Durst, which will be shown printing shrink sleeves.
An iFlex will be displayed with an 8-color flexo UV LED configuration. An entry-level machine, it is equipped with several new and sophisticated features that will help printers to reduce waste during the production process, time for job changeover and overall maintenance costs.
Omet engineered the laminating module to process CLS self-adhesive film (Core Linerless Solution), a project in collaboration with Ritrama and Spilker. This will also be shown at Labelexpo Europe. The project is gathering strong interest among printers and brand owners all over the world, especially in the food and beverage, home, and personal care industries, said the company. Core Linerless Solution is a self-adhesive film engineered to be transformed into a single ply linerless web, ready to be dispensed using a special linerless module.
