SEI Laser will exhibit the latest enhanced version of Labelmaster at Labelexpo Europe 2019 on stand 9C57. The digital converting system will be shown in two models with web widths of 350mm and 600mm.
Labelmaster, a modular system for roll-to-roll and roll-to-sheet digital die-cutting and finishing, is suited to the production of self-adhesive labels in all sectors. During Labelexpo Europe, visitors will have the opportunity to see the laser processing different types of labels and special finishes on different materials – such as paper, PP and textile.
‘As we arrive at Labelexpo Europe 2019, it is proving to be the acknowledged acceptance of the digital business model, now indispensable in all (or almost all) labeling and packaging segments,’ saidEttore Colico, converting director at SEI Laser. ‘It is no longer used just for well-known special effects, but with the confidence and respect for a digital technology that has reached complete maturity. Jumbo rolls, automatic motorized knives and “wide web” will be the key points of the SEI Laser stand in Brussels.’
Labelmaster features a QR-code/barcode reading system which allows users to change work on the fly, ensuring high productivity and eliminating set-up times. The control software, compatible with most popular digital workflows, maximizes efficiency for many types of work: web to labeling, web to stickers, and web to packaging.
SEI Laser will present two configurations of the Labelmaster, in 350mm and 600mm web configurations. Now in its third generation, the system will be equipped with four laser heads to reach a constant speed of over 100m/min. The speed is kept constant by the traction control system, which works in synergy with the control unit monitoring the longitudinal deviation of the printed substrate, guaranteeing perfect registration and high-quality laser processing.
Labelmaster is a modular system, customizable upon purchase or after it is installed, with different finishing options: die-cutting, cutting, microperforation, easy-open, engraving, coding and, optionally: semi-rotary flexo printing/varnishing, semi-rotary hot stamping, inspection, control and slitting.
