To add to the amazing print quality of the HP Indigo digital presses, Traco is also acquiring an AB Graphic Digicon Series 3 finishing press
for finishing of digital sleeves and labels.
Instead of traditional die line-ups, which have five or six dies to make some of the larger bodyside components, we used what we call a single stage finishing press
. This is a combination of laser cutting and a single stage press, which runs at a slower rate.
"We always stretch to meet the needs of our customers, and this new finishing press
is a prime example," says John Trail, president of Labeltronix.
Labeltronix, of Orange, CA, USA, has incorporated a Digicon finishing press
with hot stamping capabilities into its operation.
Dion also has two finishing presses
that are used for coating and die cutting after being printed, Stewart added.
Today, Labeltronix runs in a 50,000-square-foot facility with multiple digital and flexographic printing and finishing presses
, along with its own uniquely customer-focused application and learning center.
Mida Maquinaria builds semirotary and finishing presses
. Mida has developed its own shaftless technology and has launched the New SK/MA 350 finishing series, combining silk screen, hot foil and embossing with rotary units as diecutting or flexo varnishing.
