ABG to unveil new digital finishing innovations at Labelexpo
29th June 2018
ABG will exhibit 13 machines over 4 booths at Labelexpo, covering a wide range of finishing applications - ABG (#3223), HP (#3226), Domino (#6523) and REA (#6514).
On the ABG booth there will be a monster beverage specification Digicon Series 3 showing the NEW fast flatbed screen printing module, BIG FOOT 50 tonne flatbed hot foil unit, and its little sister, the 25 tonne flatbed hot foil unit with a NEW swivel head allowing foil to be fed both along and across the web like the BIG FOOT. This will be running two beverage labels highlighting the quality and the extensive embellishment capabilities of the machine.
Launching at the show will be the Jetfx digital embellishment module – an offline, fully digital system creating amazing varnish and foil effects.
The ever-popular Digicon Lite will be shown with a sheeter and conveyor option.
The market leading turret rewinders will be shown in several different configurations, including the best selling AutoSet, available as a standalone turret or integrated on a Digicon Series 3 (being shown as both at the show).
ABG’s German manufacturing division is bringing six different fleyeVision 100% inspection cameras, including two of these seamlessly mounted on Slitter Inspection Rewinders. There will also be a Booklet machine on the ABG booth, last shown 6 years ago, capable of processing up to 36000 booklet labels per hour.
Teaming up with a popular labelling MIS supplier, visitors to the booth will be able to watch live production data from the beverage specification Digicon, the AutoSet glueless turret rewinder and an SRI Slitter Inspection Rewinder.
Over on the HP booth (#3226) will be an inline, fully automated Digicon Series 3 including the patented FAST Track die (running at 150 m/min in semi rotary mode) and the fully integrated AutoSet glueless turret rewinder with quick change mandrels, showcasing printing and finishing ready to ship to customers in a single pass.
In addition to this, there will also be a new Digilase with single laser head running a fully automated workflow solution, and a new inline entry level 762mm wide finishing machine suitable for flexible packaging and shrink sleeves.
The Domino booth (#6523) will be showing a Digicon similar to that on the HP booth with a 100% fleyeVision camera inspection system.
Over on the REA booth (#6514) will be an SRI mounted with an inkjet printer for variable data.
