Omet – Stirring presentations and new orders

Omet’s crowded stand at Labelexpo Europe 2015

BRUSSELS • During Labelexpo Europe, nine demos a day stirred up Omet’s stand and gathered crowds of visitors to watch live three presses covering the requests of the labels and package printing markets. Many orders were signed during the show and more orders are expected to come in the next few weeks.

The iFlex 370mm (14’’) label press at its first time at a show. Pre-register, register, job change were performed in a flash and press novelties included iLight, laser-assisted pre-register system, Quick Change die-cutting by means of a trolley for the slide in/out of the heavy die-cutting cylinders, and the iVision camera-assisted system for the immediate set-up of the register.

The XFlex X6 Offset hybrid flexo and offset sleeve press captured the attention of the audience already operating in the flexible packaging business or tempted to enter it. It is a most complete press mixing flexo and rotary offset in 530 mm (21’’) width whose multi-technology and multi-application approach can handle medium to large volumes of filmic labels, shrink sleeves, IML labels, flexible packaging and carton boxes.

Omet also presented the XFlex X6 Digital with flexo + digital JetPlus combination. This machine is already installed in the market. Thanks to the integration of the flexo and digital workflows, and adding in line further finishing and converting technologies, like screen printing, UV lamination or cold foil, this machine offers three solutions in one: Converters may profit of a flexo press, of a hybrid flexo + digital combination machine, when the need is to print sampling or variable data with short delivery times, or of the digital four-colour unit JetPlus (expandable) to print 100% digital.
