INDIA • Weldon Celloplast, the distributor of Omet flexo presses in India, has confirmed the sale of an iFlex press to Huhtamäki PPL Webtech Labels in Mumbai. This is not only the company’s first Omet press but also the first iFlex to be installed in India.

The ten-colour all UV press comes with added features such as cold foil, turnbar, delam and relam. Other features include one gear for each flexo unit, and a rock and roll matrix system that removes complex matrix shapes at the maximum press speeds. Easy change die-cutting, iLight and iVision for register control are standard features of iFlex presses.

The flexo press will be used to cater to various markets such as self-adhesive labels, booklet and coupon labels, aluminum foils and unsupported films. Huhtamäki is to receive the Omet iFlex press for its new plant in India by January 2017.
