Labeltronix Gets First Installation of New Press in North America
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Anaheim, CA â€“Â 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 â€œBig Footâ€ 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.
â€œOur 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,â€ said Labeltronix General Manager Shawn Plunkett.
â€œThe ability to lay down up to three hot stamp foils and still emboss in a single pass gives us greater options,â€ said Plunkett. â€œOur 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.â€
This new finishing pressâ€”the ninth press to be operating at Labeltronix, a labeling leader that has been growing rapidlyâ€”will add capacity to the finishing floor, to meet customersâ€™ needs and expectations.
â€œWe always stretch to meet the needs of our customers, and this new finishing press is a prime example,â€ said John Trail, President of Labeltronix.
