March 4, 2010

Company managers praise the technology, design and performance of the press.

Quik Stik Label Co. – Xygraphix (QSX Labels) of Everett, MA, USA, has purchased an Omet Flexy 10” wide press with eight color capacity, hot and cold foil, combination UV/hot air drying, and interchangeable units for flexo and rotary screen.

QSX Labels owner Robert Karess says, “The Omet Flexy provides us not only with additional production capacity but also the ability to offer detailed decorative labels that our customers are expecting us to provide. We considered many different presses before choosing Omet. We were very impressed with the overall technology, design and mechanical construction built into the Flexy as well its outstanding web tension control and print registration. This press allows for easy slide-out print cassettes for fast changeovers, which is absolutely essential in today’s short-run market and also provides an extremely short web path which ultimately reduces waste and increases job versatility.”

The company serves the specialty food and beverage, high technology, consumer goods, chemical, industrial, and personal care industries. “We’ve built our business by being quality and service driven,” says Karess. “Our customers demand a quality product with short lead times. To meet this demand, we have to be very flexible and always have the capabilities, capacities and skills to deliver. The addition of the Omet Flexy will help us continue delivering the level of service we are known for as well as enable us to expand our product offering.”

Adds Operation Manager John Douglas, “I have worked with many high end presses during my 20-year career and I have never seen a press designed so efficiently or effectively. This press really produces incredible work and is extremely versatile – you really could not ask for more from a press.” Omet presses are manufactured in Lecco, Italy. Matik, Inc., West Hartford, CT, USA, is the sales and service agent for Omet in the US and Canada.
