AB Graphic debuts Digicon carton unit

September 16, 2010

Also new to the Americas is the flat screen and flat foil press.

AB Graphic introduced a new module to its popular Digicon converting systems – the carton series, which converts short run carton and boxes using semi-rotary cutting and creasing.

“This is the first time that cutting and creasing of cartons has been offered to the industry using semi-rotary technology,” says Al Spendlow, managing director of AB Graphic Inc. “Using semi-rotary technology means that the converter doesn’t need to change cylinder sizes.” ABG sold two prototype units. Commercial production of the carton units has just begun.

The company also demonstrated its flat screen and flat foil system for the first time in North America. It features a repeat up to 12”, and speed for foil up to 7,200 impressions per hour, and 3,600 impressions per hour for screen printing. Multiple foil and screen units can be incorporated into the press.

“We have had a lot of interest from prime label printers for that machine,” says Spendlow.
