Omet to hold open house March 9-11

March 2, 2011

The Italian press maker will conduct demonstrations on many of its presses at its factory in Lecco, Italy.

Press manufacturer Omet will host an open house for existing and potential customers next week at its headquarters in Lecco, Italy. The event will start March 9 and conclude on the 11th. Among the new equipment on display will be the 430 VaryFlex combination press, including offset groups, bound for a converter in Turkey.

The offset group, which made its appearance at Labelexpo Europe 2007, is a compendium of technology, printing precision and robustness for the printing of added-value labels, according to Omet. In addition to offset it offers rotogravure, flexo, screen, foiling, and converting.

Omet also will show a 430 X-Flex press, winner of the FTA Innovation Award in 2008 and the Label Industry Award for Continuous Innovation in 2010, with flexo, screen and converting groups; and a 530 VaryFlex machine with a mix of printing technologies, specifically rotogravure and flexo, for the printing of flexible packaging film. Other machines on view will be a 530 VaryFlex for the printing of heavy-duty cartons, and a 670 VaryFlex with in-line lamination.

Customers will be invited to tour the company production halls and assist in live demos.
