Digicon 3000 installed into RAKO Group
GERMANY • Edale and AB Graphics International have installed the first Digicon 3000 into Germany, in RAKO Group. RAKO Group have over 80 printing machines at 13 different sites worldwide and manufacture self-adhesive labels, flexible packaging, security technologies (RFID & Holograms) and software.
The Digicon 3000 installed at RAKO Group will be used mainly for converting labels at their headquarters in Witzhave, Germany. Roger Gehrke, RAKO Group’s digital print manager, comments “The array of options including laminating, foiling, vanishing and printing with different technologies (water, solvent and UV), bring a huge amount of value to our narrow web equipment.”
The Digicon 3000 is a 30” (762 mm) finishing solution for digitally pre-printed labels and flexible packaging to run in-line with the HP Indigo 20000 digital press, or as an offline converting solution. This machine is a joint venture by Edale and AB Graphic’s International which was initiated by the growing demand for digital print solutions as the requirements for shorter run lengths, reduced lead times and growing SKU diversity in labels and flexible packaging has increased.
