SMAG launches screen and finishing units

September 30, 2011

The new semi-rotary flatbed screen unit offers benefits to offset, flexo and digital label converters.

The highlight at SMAG Graphique’s Labelexpo booth is the new high-speed semi-rotary flatbed screen printing station that operates at speeds up to 30m/m. With a maximum print width of 340 mm and a 340 mm repeat length, the print station operates mono-color on a Digital Galaxie at the show, in conjunction with a semi-rotary flexo station and a semi-rotary diecutting station.

“This high-speed flatbed screen printer enables label converters to deliver the advantages of screen printing including opacity, chemical resistance, and tactile effects more easily and cost-effectively than ever before,” said Stéphane Rateau, general manager, SMAG Graphique. “Visitors to our stand at Labelexpo will be able to see this printer in action, along with our full range of products for label converters.”

Also new on the SMAG Graphique stand is the I-CUT 330, part of the entry level finishing and converting series for digital label converters. The I-CUT 330 (330 mm) offers speeds up to 4 0m/m. The unit complements the established I-CUT 250 (250 mm is a more compact model delivering speeds up to 15 m/m).
