Following the recent launch of the LF350 digital label finishing machine, the British made Eclipse range is seeing increased success in the label producing markets.
UK • According to Impression Technology Europe (ITE), their Eclipse range of digital label finishers has quickly established itself.
The British manufacturers claim that the first of the range, the LF3, was the first true ‘table-top’ finishing machine that included: lamination, single point registration and the ability to handle large rolls of media. The next in the range, the LF350, claims to be the first ‘bridge’ machine that sits just as easily in the small order market as it does in the bulk order sections of the industry.
Roy Burton, MD of design, manufacture and distribution said “We approached the Eclipse project with a clear view of what we wanted. We had identified the fact that a small footprint, low investment label finisher just wasn’t available and yet the demand was. With the growth of the small order market the LF3 was the obvious machine to start with but it soon became apparent that larger digital label printers were also looking for something like this albeit with a higher specification. The result was the LF350 which we launched at this year trade shows”.
ITE says that the models have been, or are about to be, despatched to markets such as Dubai, Malaysia and America as well as the ‘closer to home’ markets of Europe and, of course, the UK.
The Eclipse range was designed, developed and manufactured in Britain.
The LF350 specifications include supporting media width of 100mm (3.9″) to 350mm (13.7″) and an ability to cut up to a 800mm (31.4″) long label. The twin cutting blades that are standard on this machine have individual depth control and are supported by five slitting blades. Supported and unsupported lamination handling is standard and the machine has double dancer bars for paper feed with positional intelligence and full waste matrix removal.
