AB Graphic International upgrades converting and finishing systems

September 30, 2011

The latest Omega and Vectra machines focus on fast job changes, reduced waste and non-stop production.

AB Graphic International this year features the latest developments in its Omega and Vectra range of label converting and finishing lines with the focus on fast job changes, reduced waste and non-stop production.

Two versions of the company’s Omega Digicon 2 label converting lines are running live demonstrations featuring non-stop operation with semi-automatic turret rewinders to eliminate additional finishing. One model is demonstrated with off-line turret rewinding to allow the machine to slow down when the finished roll terminates; the second features Nordson automatic gluing.

The new Omega ATR inspection rewinder is equipped with a turret rewinder to allow the operator to visually inspect the web while maintaining non-stop finishing.

Featuring new software upgrades, the Digicon Sabre Xtreme laser cutter features non-stop digital die changeover and variable data capability. The system on display features cold foil application through inkjet technology to apply the adhesive without the use of printing plates.

A Digicon converting line is in operation at the HP Indigo booth, converting labels inline with the new WS6600 press.
