Tony Mariani, managing director of AML, says, “The investment in the new Daco FLX350 will help to satisfy the demand for high volume, single color labels to support the growing sales of thermal and color label printers. We already offer a wide range of blank labels to purchase via our website. However, the new label press will enable us to launch a new range of colored labels, also known as tinted or color-washed.
“The addition of the new Daco will be a huge benefit to all our customers as the new machine is ideal for the production of black mark labels for color printers, including the Epson C7500, the Afinia L801 and the OKI Pro 1050," adds Mariani.
Designed to simplify the printing process and increase accuracy, the Daco FLX350 incorporates the very latest flexo printing technology, including servo control of the printing and cutting stations; touch screen computer control of the majority of functions and cut to register. The machine delivers high volume with enhanced accuracy, while boasting a cut to register facility that enables black mark labels to be produced with excellent accuracy at 0.25 mm.
The Daco press offering flexibility, while setup times hav beenreduced and print speeds increased. The Daco FLX350 has both water and UV-based printing systems, each with their own advantages. The water-based ink system is good for low-cost tinted labels, which is better suited for some thermal printers. The UV ink provides a highly durable print where water and chemical resistance is imperative.
David Lee, production manager of AML, states, “We are continually investing in our print operation to ensure that we offer our customers the very highest quality and most cost-effective labels. In addition to being flexible, efficient and economical, the Daco FLX350 maintains an exceptionally high-print quality while minimizing material waste, making it an ideal investment for the company.
“We are committed to raising standards for our customers and, as we look towards the future in the dynamic industry in which we operate, this newest addition to our wide-ranging portfolio will enable us to extend our in-house offering and ensure that we can both respond to, and exceed, the ever-evolving consumer demand across a wide range of industries and applications," he adds.
