Tim Fountain, Harkwell’s managing director, says, “As labeling regulations become ever more stringent we feel this investment from ABG, a forward-thinking company, will allow us competitive advantage by offering rotary screen prices with minimal set up fees using flat screens.
“In addition, we’ll be able to offer 'jump off the shelf' embellishments in silk screen attracting the beverage, cosmetics and other high value product markets,” continues Fountain.
“We will also be able to produce vibrant high impact colors that neither digital or flexo are able to achieve.”
Launched at Labelexpo Europe 2017 in September by ABG, what used to be the slowest module on a finishing machine has now doubled its speed and offers numerous benefits to operators. “We had fantastic response at Labelexpo and since then have received multiple enquiries and orders for the module,” says Tony Bell, ABG’s sales director. “With a larger print and repeat area, increased speed and improved UV curing ensuring consistency along the whole web, we are confident this is the best solution for screen in the finishing market.”
