Belmark to install Muller Martini press

August 30, 2011

Belmark Inc. will install a second Muller Martini press by the end of this year.

Belmark Inc., a De Pere, WI, USA-based packing manufacturer, has announced its plans to install a second Muller Martini variable sleeve offset printing (VSOP) press by the end of this year. The press will be equipped with both offset and flexo capabilities, along with an automatic splicer, auto register control, EB curing, and in-line diecutting.

“This is our second VSOP,” says Karl Schmitt, Belmark’s president. “We’ve been very happy with the performance of the one we already have, and that’s given us the confidence to purchase an additional one. We’re very confident in Muller Martini and their ability to service us and this equipment.”

According to the company, the Muller Martini VSOP press is designed for flexible packaging and folding carton markets that require simple and rapid size changes. Using sleeve technology, print sizes can be changed without having to exchange the entire printing insert, which can be cost effective for print lengths that change frequently. In addition to flexible packaging printing, the VSOP can be used for label printing, including wet-glue labels, paper or film roll labels, self-adhesive labels, in-mold labels and shrink films.

Belmark serves a variety of industries including dairy, snack food, durable goods, and pet food. Muller Martini is a producer of print finishing products for commercial and book printers, trade binderies, newspapers and digital book manufacturers, in addition to VSOP presses.
