The machine is an 8-color, full UV, 350mm wide FL3 and boasts an array of additional options, including a crossover unit for 2 and 3 ply peel and read label production.
The machine also includes Edale’s latest technology – AiiR - (autonomous inking, impression and print registration), which uses precision camera technology to improve registration accuracy, while automated print pressure control reduces waste and setup times. By fully automating print and the registration processes, the level of operator intervention can be reduced, leading to fewer errors and a more consistent, higher-quality final product.
“Our decision to purchase a second Edale FL3 is based upon experience gained following the installation of our first FL3 three years ago," says Simon Sturdy of Sturdy Labels. "The operating efficiency of the press has enabled the company to win new business, increase our production capacity and shorten turnaround times. We are very pleased with the FL3’s operator friendliness and industry leading print quality. Its modular construction allows additional print units to be easily installed – Edale recently installed a Stork screen print unit on our first FL-3, enabling us to meet particular demands. We appreciate Edale’s flexible support to our business and look forward to continuing a long relationship.”
Simon Cosh, Edale’s sales manager, adds, "We are delighted that Sturdy Print has endorsed Edale and, in particular, the FL3 with their second FL3 press. As Sturdy Print continues to grow and expand their product range, the added automation in their new press will be of great benefit to them."
The machine is due to be installed later this year.
