After partnering with Domino, Lombardi launched its digital flexo hybrid solution at Labelexpo 2017: the digital UV inkjet printing system with Domino Digistar Inkjet, comprising two heads for white followed by four-color process, extendable to heptachrome.
Digistar is followed by the online Lombardi finishing units: A semi-rotary UV flexo for full-board paint or a Pantone color, and a cold foil group that can be positioned by rail in any position among the groups. Its modular configuration can be modified according to the specific needs of each customer.
With a 350 mm band width, Digistar Inkjet works with an unwinder at 700 m/m.
Another attraction wasLombardi's flagship Synchroline, which is defined by customers as the "universal machine," thanks to its flexibility and smart electronics.
The Synchroline 430 full servo automatic flexo has been shown with eight UV flexo units, followed by Bravo, the inline flat screen unit to add a thickened varnishing at register. An inline Toro unit for hot foil, equipped with the special "foil saver" system to reduce the consumption of the foil, was also displayed. This solution is suitable for embossed applications.
Bravo and Toro are the two ennobling modules developed by Lombardi, which had already found considerable success and interest at the Labelexpo in Brussels, Belgium in September 2017. The register and print quality controls have been entrusted to the new Grafikontrol LYNEX-Y system, equipped with a linear camera for a 100% inspection on the entire width of the strip and print format.
With this showroom, which was the first of a series, the many Italian label printers who attended had the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of the technologies developed by Lombardi Converting Machinery during their 30 years of activity.
