Labelexpo Americas – Adding the finishing touch
USA • The Digital Finishing Experience is set to debut at this year’s Labelexpo Americas. This brand new feature area will involve live machinery demonstrations by Xeikon and Delta ModTech.
The Digital Finishing Experience has been established to highlight how converters can take full commercial advantage of short run opportunities in label and packaging personalization, seasonal variations and product fragmentation. With market demand growing for short run customized finishes, digital finishing technology offers print professionals a high quality and cost effective business offering for clients.
Xeikon will be premiering the Xeikon FDU as part of the special show feature. The FDU unit is designed to fit in any digital production process for carton, tags and sheetfed labels. Tight tolerance semi-rotary die-cutting, high-speed output and on-the-fly changeovers are just some of the capabilities to be featured by Delta ModTech on its Spectrum finishing system. With the company’s Intelli-Mod control system operators are able to changeover from job to job helping printers to compete in an industry that’s rapidly shifting from mass production of static print to smaller custom runs on digital technology. The control system also includes proven print to die registration software that will automatically adjust the die-cuts to print variations.
With real time technical demonstrations taking place over the show’s three-day run, visitors will be able to see how they can build complexity into folding cartons, speed up their delivery times, become more profitable and set their services apart. Presentations will be held daily at 11.00 am and 3.00 pm and at 11.00 am on the show’s closing day.
