Interprint invests in Gidue M1

December 2, 2013

This is the second Gidue press for the Leon, Spain-based converter.

Spanish converter Interprint has again invested in Gidue technology by purchasing the new M1 Digital Flexo exhibited at Gidue booth during Labelexpo Europe 2013. Founded in 1995 in Leon, Interprint specializes in the production of self-adhesive labels.

Tomas Iglesias, managing director of Interprint, says he decided to invest in the entry-level Combat MX Easy-to-Go in late 2012. The press is 370mm wide, features eight flexographic print units, eight UV lamps, one diecutting station, cold foil and a full set of printing tools. After less than a year, the company decided to invest in an M1 Digital Flexo, which is a 370mm, eight-color Flexo UV with Exceldie technology for automated exchange of diecutting stations. It was installed in the company's plant in Leon after the end of the exhibition. According to Iglesias, the decision to invest again in Gidue technology is directly related to the introduction of the Digital Flexo system, thanks to which the whole printing and die-cutting process is fully automated. 

"With the M1 Digital Flexo, we can let the operator just concentrate on the printing quality and organize the work flow around the press to achieve the highest productivity. We are sure that this additional investment will help us to easily face the growing market demand," Iglesias says.
