GM’s DC series has been in the market for the past 15 years. All DC’s are prepared for both offline and inline operation with a digital press. The inline interface includes remote start, stop and pause of the digital press from the DC’s touch screen. The lines come with a number of options; laser die cutting, hot and cold stamping, screen printing, automatic knife box, 100% inspection, web-to-sheet mode (conveyers) and more. As standard, the machine operates in blank label mode, full rotary mode, semi-rotary mode and re-register mode for digital finishing.
As digital label printing continues to grow, label-printing houses are realising the need for all-inclusive digital printing systems that provide value-added features for producing fully finished labels. The DC330 from Grafisk Maskinfabrik offers the ideal solution. A complete converting and finishing unit, this product was specially created for use with digital printing presses. The DC330 can be set up as an in-line extension to a digital label printing system, allowing the web to continue directly into the converter from the digital press. It can also be used as an off-line converting and finishing unit for jobs from other digital presses or conventional presses. It can even function as a printing press for specialized value-added solutions.
The DC330 can be equipped with job-automation and configured to work with industry standards (ESKO, CERM, LabelTrax, XML, SQL). Job data can be stored in the machine and re-called with a bar-code reader.
The GM DC330 integrates the most advanced converting and finishing techniques available today. When used together with the a digital label press, this innovative unit gives professional label printers a complete and versatile solution for high-volume digital printing.

The DC330 can be fitted with the ETV330/515 High Speed Sheeter to make "label sheets" - see a demonstration of this configuration here:
Another popular option is the laser die module. This offers "tool free" laser die cutting. Day to day delivery of digital printed labels. See an example here:
In register lamination unit for multi layer / peel and reveal labels. This module is a great value adding feature for the DC330. Multi-layer units sell at much higher prices compared to normal labels. The unit is a fraction of the size of a conventional solution with turn bars and cross over units. This is truly the optimal solution for digitally printed multilayer labels.
