Highly productive, cost efficient, quality label and packaging printing press.
Industry leading levels of automation, including autonomous inking impression and register “AiiR” and the FL3’s unique print head design mean that average down time is cut to a minimum, change over rates are reduced and the highest graphic quality can be profitably delivered whether short or long run. Edale’s automation technology can improve productivity, reduce waste and increase print quality whilst making your company less dependent on highly skilled operators.
The opportunity for label convertors to diversify into new growth markets such as sleeves, wrap around labels, pouches and sachets can be addressed by combining the FL3’s AiiR automation with the available film packages.
Edale’s extensive knowledge and experience of over 17 years in the hybrid/ flexo market is now enhanced with the launch of an Edale branded hybrid press, using industry leading technology based around the proven FL3 platform. Hybrid digital print empowers the converter to profit from a diverse range of markets ranging from short run labels through to high volume mass randomised print on PS labels and flexible packaging. Hybrid digital productivity far exceeds that of EP technologies and is now the most rapidly expanding segment of the label market.
Please contact Edale to arrange a demonstration or consultation to determine which configuration of FL3 would deliver the greatest value to your business.View a demo video
