Offset with Sleeves ready to market
January 11, 2013
A 10-color XFlex X6 430 with 5 Offset (Sleeve) groups, 5 Flexo units, cold foil, rotary die-cutting and Vision-1 Automatic register system is the first press by OMET equipped with the new Offset group with sleeves. The press, ready some time ahead than scheduled, thanks to the hard work of OMET R&D and Technical Teams, has been installed and commissioned and has gone through final acceptance during the month of December 2012 at customer Masterpress of Bialystok, Poland. Masterpress is a very important player at international level and has already five OMET machines and is using this last press to print mainly refined shrink sleeves and In-Mold labels for the food sector.
OMET Offset (Sleeve) group, firstly introduced during Labelexpo 2011, is now a reality and an integral part of OMET combination printing presses package. “We are proud to have our first press equipped with sleeve offset at such an important customer” informs Marco Calcagni, OMET Sales and Marketing Director. “The choice was strategic for both; Masterpress was looking for one in-line offset press with characteristics of high speed, excellent quality results and ease of management while we were looking for the right customer who could fully exploit the machine potential”. The customer was so favorably impressed that has already put an order for a second machine in 670 mm width. After XFlex X6 presses, Offset (sleeve) will be available on the whole range of OMET multi-process and platform presses up to 850 mm on Varyflex V2 machines.
