The Label Makers adds Omega Digicon Lite finishing line

July 5, 2011

The machine's shorter web path translates to more cost effective production for simple label converting.

AB Graphic International has announced the sale of an Omega Digicon Lite finishing line to The Label Makers, Bradford, UK. The system will join a range of existing label converting and finishing lines supplied by AB Graphic International over recent years and will be used to take simple jobs from the company’s recently installed Omega Digicon Series 2 machine.

The high specification Omega Digicon Series 2 is equipped with flat bed hot foiling, cold foiling, embossing, screen module and two UV flexo units. These enable the production of a wide range of decorative labels, but make basic jobs less practical. The Digcon Lite will be used to convert simple label jobs for food, food supplements, toiletries and drinks such as those used by micro breweries and free up the high specification model for more sophisticated work.

“The Omega Digicon Series II line is highly specified and this is fantastic for high embellishment drinks and cosmetics labels, but we have a large number of jobs that only require a varnish and diecutting,” explains David Webster, managing director of The Label Makers. The Digicon Lite has a much shorter web path which means more cost effective production. This, coupled with its quick set-up and slitting facilities, make it a very good finishing machine.”

“The Digicon Lite combines all the basic functions required for varnishing and diecutting labels and is the perfect solution where there are simple converting needs," adds Tony Bell, AB Graphic International. “The standard machine includes a flexo station, UV curing, semi rotary die station and razor blade slitting. We can also supply a range of options for this model including over-laminating, electronic dispro, hot air drying and scissor or crush slitting”

AB Graphic International is headquartered in Bridlington, East Yorkshire, UK. The company has a global network of distributors and has facilities in the USA, France, Germany, Spain and The Netherlands.
