FL5 + FDC600
FLEXOGRAPHIC CARTON PRESS
- SCRATCH CARDS
Combine print, cut, crease, braille embossing and waste removal into a single machine with the FL5 Carton line, ideal for short run work from 1,000 – 100,000 units and reconfigurable for a wide range of sizes and forms.
Advanced tension control, robust construction and technologies dedicated to handling paper board means that the FL5 can handle substrates up to 600 micron (24pt) thick and 510mm (20″0 wide. The FDC-510 can run in line with the FL5, combining low tooling costs with cut, crease, braille, waste stripping and diverging delivery all in a single pass.
The Edale FL5 printing and converting system running in line with the Edale FDC-510, web fed flatbed die cutter, makes a highly efficient solution specifically designed for short run folding carton production.

Our customer iTek Packz is known for its awards for Excellence in Flexography and Innovation, and for the third-consecutive year running has been awarded gold for Flexography, Narrow Web and they also received the highly acclaimed ‘Best in Show Award.’
They have been given high praise from the FTA judges for their winning entry, for Narrow Web, process, paperboard, which was a vibrant soap carton. The judges stated: “Lots of action in the carton, and it couldn’t have been executed better. Great screen work, great trap, and great register. The printer’s use of gold cold foil worked out very well. And the overprint varnish textures add measurable diversity and depth.”
iTek Packz also received a silver award for its narrow web, process, metalized for their production of a highly embellished, brandy box. The judges commented that it was flawlessly executed.
All these award-winning cartons were run on an Edale Press.
iTek Packz commented: “We are very proud that for the third year running, we have been recognised by the FTA. To receive the ‘Best in Show’ and Gold and Silver Awards has been a great honour for our business.
Our Best in Show carton entry was produced for a customer who wanted 6-7 colours, gold matte foil, and varnish and other effects. We are delighted to have achieved the quality required using our technology and print capabilities, which in our opinion is the best in the industry.
