IRELAND • Label Art has recently taken delivery of a HP Indigo WS6800 digital press. HP chose Label Art to be one of the first label producers in the world to take delivery of this state of the art printing press. The official launch of the press is not until September at Labelexpo Americas, but Label Art’s press is already installed and in production.

The company claim that the press offers unmatched production efficiency with advanced automation, and even higher productivity in EPM print mode which boosts output by up to 33%. A new advanced feature of the press is an in-line spectrophotometer that automatically calibrates and adjusts colour, ensuring consistent colour matching.

In-line priming and corona treatment ensures that print quality is achieved on heavily textured substrates such as those used in the wine industry. The press can print on  substrates from 12 to 450 microns. The press also features in-line scanning to monitor print quality throughout the print run.

Established in 1981 in Dublin, Label Art are a manufacturer of  self-adhesive labels, heat seal lidding, non-adhesive tags, sachets and anti-counterfeit products. The companys key markets are Pharmaceutical and Healthcare, Chemical, Beverage and Food, Automotive, Electronics and Brand Protection.
