What a successful Labelexpo Europe 2015!
October 15, 2015
Nine demos a day stirred up OMET’s stand and gathered crowds of visitors to watch live 3 presses tailored to the needs of today’s label converters and fully covering the requests of a variegated and dynamic market such as the one of labels and packaging printing.
The big news was, of course, the iFlex 370mm (14’’) label press at its first time at a show. Novelties like iLight, laser-assisted pre-register system, QCDC, Quick Change Die cutting by means of a trolley for the slide in/out of the heavy die-cutting cylinders, iVision, camera-assisted system for the immediate set-up of the perfect register, astonished the public and showed how simplicity can be the key to success.
Next to iFlex, the XFlex X6 Offset, flexo + offset with sleeves hybrid press captured the attention of the audience already operating in the flexible packaging business or tempted to enter it. The XFlex X6 Offset is the most complete and only press mixing flexo and rotary offset in 530mm (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 with the certainty of the least quantity of waste and the highest quality output in one, single passage.
To complete such a valuable picture, OMET presented the XFlex X6 Digital with flexo + digital JetPlus combination to satisfy needs of short runs printing and heavy job rotation, and delivering the most elevated quality and highest productivity. Three solutions in one under the sign of the maximum flexibility and versatility to face any request in the label and packaging business.
Many orders were signed during the Show and more orders are expected to come in the next few weeks. It is shared opinion among OMET’s Staff that this Labelexpo Europe marked an unprecedented success for the company after all the enthusiastic comments overheard on the stand.
