Edale, a UK-based printing and converting manufacturer, will host an informal Open Day at its factory and showroom on Thursday, May 9, 10am – 4pm. Demonstrations will be shown on a number of presses in the range, including: the award-winning Alpha, Edale’s compact label and ticketing press; and the next generation FL-3 label and flexible packaging press, which has had some additional features and options added and is now available in web widths of 350mm or 430mm with an optional rail system.
Also on display will be a Gamma printing and converting system, which the company says is ideal for printing on substrates from 12 micron film up to 600 micron carton board, and can be tailor-made to include a number of different options. The Gamma can be modified as a short run folding carton line when run inline with the Edale FDC-510. This flexible press is also reconfigurable as a single pass machine to produce scratch-off tickets and vouchers with the capability to run more than 200,000 CR80 size cards or 1,000,000 pins per hour.
Other machines available for viewing include an FDC-510 flatbed diecutter, as well as a number of Beta and FL-3 models going through production ready for customer acceptances. Visitors will also be some of the first to view the next product to come through the Edale factory ready for its launch in 2014: the FL-5, 760mm mid web packaging machine.
The day will include a tour of the factory and demonstration unit and also a walkthrough of the offices, giving visitors a chance to see Edale’s in-house design team at work on a variety of projects. Edale’s Managing Director James Boughton will also use the day as his platform to announce news, partnerships and developments.

The company has also announced that one of its UK customers, Douglas Storrie Labels, has picked up a Gold award for ‘Best Flexo Print on Film’ in the narrow web category at the recent EFIA Print Awards 2013.
Chris Chappel, sales manager for UK and Ireland says, “On behalf of all at Edale, we would like to extend congratulations to our award winning customers, and we look forward to continuing our working relationship together with a lot more trophies. The quality that Douglas Storrie Labels are printing on their Edale FL-3 is second to none, and this award certainly helps to cement this."
The FL-3 press is available for demonstrations at Edale’s factory based in Hampshire, UK, throughout 2013.
