‘Big Foot’ Making Big Impression With Labels

Labeltronix Gets First Installation of New Press in North America

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Anaheim, CA – Customers now have more options to add customized finishing touches that will add distinction to their labels with a new press acquired by Labeltronix.

Labeltronix is the first company in North America to receive the Digicon Series 3 press with the Big Foot Flat Bed module from AB Graphic International.

The “Big Foot” hot foil and embossing stamping module uses 50 tons of pressure to lay multiple foil colors and raises embossing to a new level. It has a rotatable foil head that can foil across and along the web allowing our customers the ability to choose from a wider array of foil options, and gain impact with deeper embossing and debossing.

With a larger maximum foil area than many others on the market, it can run up to 65m/min, running three lanes in the web direction and two across the web, adding 33% increase in faster speed compared to its predecessor.

“Our customers will see new and more creative ways to add sophistication to the finishing touches on their labels, thanks to the increased capabilities and speed of this new press,” said Labeltronix General Manager Shawn Plunkett.

“The ability to lay down up to three hot stamp foils and still emboss in a single pass gives us greater options,” said Plunkett. “Our new embossing and foiling head will result in a superior emboss and the ability to push previous limits with sculptured embossing and custom background textures.”

This new finishing press—the ninth press to be operating at Labeltronix, a labeling leader that has been growing rapidly—will add capacity to the finishing floor, to meet customers’ needs and expectations.

“We always stretch to meet the needs of our customers, and this new finishing press is a prime example,” said John Trail, President of Labeltronix.
