Allen Datagraph Systems Inc. (ADSI), Derry, NH, USA, is showcasing its iTech Axxis SR Digital Label System at Labelexpo, and the company is touting it as a “first of its kind.” The system is a complete, affordable digital label printer that is designed for converters that require the on-demand proofing and prototyping of labels of any shape. The system is also ideal for end users with short run labeling needs.
The iTech Axxis SR Digital Label System enables the printing and digital diecutting of labels – of any shape – in a matter of minutes. The system uses an Epson B-500DN inkjet print engine at 720 x 720 dpi. With a wide range of available substrates including paper, polyester and polypropylene, the system can print in widths from 4” to 8.5” in rolls with a maximum outside diameter of 11 inches. The finishing portion of the iTech Axxis SR laminates and digital diecuts, along with scoring the facestock for the easy removal of matrix waste.
Mark Vanover, VP sales and marketing for ADSI, emphasizes that the system can provide end users with their own “in-house” label production system, as it significantly reduces inventory requirements and costs. And for the professional converter, “the iTech Axxis Digital Label System enables them to provide customers the added value capabilities of proofing and prototyping labels of any shape prior to committing to full production,” he says.
