SPGPrints – Spanish label converter Adamtec invests in DSI
BELGIUM • At Labelexpo Europe, Adamtec, a label manufacturer of Valencia, has purchased a six-station SPGPrints DSI digital UV-inkjet press, to meet the demand for short production runs from customers in the food, chemical and automotive industries. The 330mm (13”) press features the standard CMYK, white and a digital primer.
The DSI press features as standard intermittent LED pinning between each colour station to ensure immediate curing and ink stability at fast speeds, and a chill drum to stabilise film substrates. This feature is of great benefit to Adamtec, which supplies high quantities of PP labels to the food and chemical industries. The new press will be installed in December and complete the fleet of two existing flexo presses.
Jaume Crespo, General Manager at Adamtec, comments: “With the acquisition of the DSI press we will be able to print individualized labels in the same production run, which we believe it is great value to our customers, and therefore a strong growth area for us. Our automotive customers, for instance, are seeking serialised battery labels and the ability to tailor information for each region. The DSI press will enable us to adapt label designs at short notice, and schedule these jobs with minimal material waste or setup time.”
