USA • The new hybrid  press Omet Xjet powered by Durst will be demonstrated for the first time in the Americas. Visitors to the label show in Chicago will also see the demonstration of the Omet iFlex press (stand 3123).

The new Omet XJet powered by Durst, unveiled last February, is a hybrid printing machine that integrates inline the Durst Tau RSC digital inkjet group with the Omet X6’s flexo printing, finishing and converting units for a range of final application.  According to the press manufacturer the advantage of this line is to get the final product in a single passage.

The second line on display, the Omet iFlex, features a range of smart solutions, designed specifically to make the entire printing process even easier and more intuitive. This includes: iLight, an pre-registration system with laser pointer on each flexo unit; iVision, a register adjustment system allowing real-time setting through a set of smart cameras; iDrive, new direct driven transmission on the impression cylinder, which allows better performance and higher stability; Easy Change Die-Cut (ECDC) which eliminates long changeover time through a special sliding device.

Labelexpo Americas 2018 takes place from 25 to 27 September in Chicago in the US.,
