As UK based Integrity Print set about adapting their business model to focus more on labels where there are more opportunities for growth, the company who have three production units looked to expand their capabilities with the aid of an FL3 flexo press.
After meeting with the customer, Edale were able to recommend the FL3 as the ideal press to help them grow the filmic side of their business, at a budget which suited them. Having three production units in operation, the make ready and set up times of this cost efficient press were crucial to this fast paced company.
The new eight-colour press can print conventional flexo or UV. It has fast make ready times, with job changeovers possible in just 70 seconds, and can handle substrates from 12-450 microns. The investment in equipment looks set to be returned through sales within the next year or so if business continues to grow as it has been.
“We will be able to offer our customers a lot more options. Demand for self-cling and filmic labels is growing, and the FL-3 allows us to print onto a really good range of substrates, including thin film packaging.”
