Increasing demand for shorter run lengths, reduced lead times and growing SKU diversity in labels and flexible packaging has created growing demand for digital print solutions. The Digicon 3000 has been developed to meet this demand and to provide both in-line or off-line finishing for digitally printed webs.
The Digicon 3000 complements any 30” wide digital press installation by enabling additional finishing steps to be completed efficiently and cost effectively.
Innovation through partnership means that the Digicon 3000 has been developed using the respective strengths of both technology partners; AB Graphic International have been supplying digital print finishing systems for over 15 years and are recognised for their expertise in semi-rotary finishing, whilst Edale have been supplying mid web solutions for digital print for over 10 years and are recognised for their expertise in flexographic print, web transportation and post print converting.
Digital packaging specialist Innovative Labeling Solutions (ILS) entered the digital print sector in 2005 and had plans for rapid growth within this division. Now one of the most comprehensive in the industry, the Ohio based company were looking for new finishing equipment.
In 2013 ILS became the owner of the first ever HP Indigo 20000 digital press. Alongside technology partners, AB Graphic International, ILS worked with Edale to specify their requirements for their finishing equipment.
The Digicon 3000 allows ILS to cost effectively convert labels and flexible packaging in a single pass when run inline with their existing digital press, allowing the company to offer a number of value added finishes, enabling them to compete for a greater segment of the consumer packaging industry.
Edale encourages partnerships and is open to sharing our own technology or integrating others to deliver new and innovative products.
