MBSF machines (‘F’ denoting film capability) consequently have a higher than standard festoon but with a short footprint.
“The beauty of the MBS system is its flexibility and the manner in which it can be tailored to suit almost any configuration and space limitation within the production environment,” says Bernd Schopferer, European sales manager, Martin Automatic. “The Desmedt installation highlights this perfectly.”
Desmedt Labels, which was originally founded in Brussels in 1889, was one of the first label converters in continental Europe to achieve HD-Flexo status. Its variety of labels and printed packaging includes promotional labels, coupons, dry peel labels, tags, duo and trio labels, and on the security side, tamper evident and RFID labels. Printing is carried out by flexo and digital presses, and the company holds EN ISO 9001-2008 accreditation and is FSC compliant.
