Mouvent – First exhibition at Labelexpo Americas
SWITZERLAND / USA • The Swiss start-up company showcased its digital technology for the first time on American soil. Mouvent demonstrated its digital label printers were are based around the Mouvent Cluster.
According to the company attendees were impressed with the Mouvent Cluster, Mouvent’s radical new approach, which uses very compact and lightweight clusters instead of fixed size print bars by colour, arranging them in a modular, scalable matrix. According to the company the system can be simply adapted for almost any substrates, widths, and markets.
The label printers, already launched in Europe and coming to America in 2019, are the following:
- LB701-UV mini label press
- LB702-UV label press
- LB702-WB label press, which uses water-based Mouvent inks
According to the company, the three label printers can all print up to seven colours on a range on substrates, including paper, self-adhesive and wet-glue labelstock and flexible materials, at production speeds of up to 100 m/min (328 fpm) with a native resolution of 1200×1200 and optical 2000 dpi.
As member of the Bobst Group, Mouvent also held a joint press conference together with Bobst during the first day of the Labelexpo show.
