OMET at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas show in early September plans to introduce its new 17-inch width XFlex X4 converting system.
The XFlex X4 includes OMET’s patented chilled impression roll print head design and fully automatic (MD & LD) register control system. This includes twin servo-motors on each printing unit for label and thin film printing.
The extended 17-inch width of the XFlex X4 system, accord to OMET, is geared toward printing companies that produce short to medium runs of labels and long runs of flexible packaging.
Also at Labelexpo Americas, OMET plans to demonstrate a 10-colour XFlex X6 530, based on shrink sleeve printing and also self-adhesive converting applications. The company plans to demonstrate the XFlex X4’s changeover and production of self-adhesive label printing for the wine and spirits sector.
OMET Americas reports an install base of around 130 machines in North, Central and South American markets. Its facility is located in Des Plaines, Illinois.
