First Digicon-Lite in UK goes to Marsh Labels

December 1, 2009

The converting unit will work alongside the company’s HP Indigo digital press.

AB Graphic International has announced the sale of its first Digicon-Lite label converter in the UK to West Sussex based Marsh Labels Ltd. The system is a compact, simple label finishing system and will be used to convert digitally printed webs.

“We are short run label printers specializing in all types of self adhesive labels. We made the move into digital label printing as we saw it as a process that our customers would benefit from in the future,” says Gary Burnley of Marsh. “The Digicon-Lite was an element of this investment working alongside our HP Indigo digital printer, all of which enable us to quickly produce high quality, short run labels.”

“We are delighted to have been part of the investment program at Marsh Labels,” says Mark Hyde of AB Graphic International. “The Digicon-Lite was developed to meet simple digital label converting needs and was launched at Labelexpo Europe. The system includes 500mm (20”) unwind with automatic tension control, electronic web guide, full rotary flexographic coating station, UV curing, semi-rotary diecutting station, waste matrix removal and slitting. It can be supplied with a number of options, depending on the requirement.”

Marsh Labels offers flexo, hot foil, litho and digitally printed labels that can be supplied in roll, sheet or tractor fed formats. The company prides itself on providing fast turnaround on a wide range of substrates. A fully equipped studio provides customer assistance from simple bar coding and label designs to more specialized security labeling requirements.
