Xpress Labels from Kochi, Kerala in India have installed DC330MINIflex dual varnish finisher for their digital production system.
Xpress Labels have installed DC330MINIflex dual varnish label finisher as an all-in-one finishing solution for their HP Indigo. The final decision about investment in GM finisher and signing the contract took place during Labelexpo 2019 in Brussels.
According to the team's study, the label business has tremendous potential and is a growing segment in packaging. Renil Thomas, Managing Director of Xpress Labels said: Brands in FMCGs, consumer market, pharma, healthcare and textile industries of today’s world are trying hard to create or maintain a unique identity. We see labels playing a large role when it comes to branding and packaged products. The main reason for entering the labels business and not carton or flexible packaging is the ease of managing the operation.
The installed configuration of DC330MINIflex provides two UV flexo varnish stations with spot varnish, cold foil, semi-rotary die-cutting, back score, slitting and semi-automatic turret rewinder on a compact platform, giving a wide spectrum of finishing capabilities.
The DC330MINIflex installation was implemented in cooperation with GM distributor in India – Printronics, managed by Selvaraj Venkatesh. Printronics is a professional equipment dealer and consultant in the printing and packaging segment with a collective experience of over 90 years in facilitating services in narrow and mid-web flexo press, narrow web & sheetfed digital press, pre-press hardware and software for flexo and offset applications.
