PRATI to introduce new off-line booklet label system at Labelexpo Americas 2010

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Marradi – PRATI introduces its VEGAplus BOOKLET converting line on Stand 717, Hall A, at Labelexpo Americas 2010, which takes place in Chicago, September 14-16.

Since its launch last year, the VEGAplus BOOKLET converting line has been gaining a lot of interest from the market, particularly from the pharmaceutical, agri-chemical and food industry. The VEGAplus BOOKLET system has already been installed at label printers in UK, US, Italy and South Africa. And the VEGAplus BOOKLET displayed at Labelexpo has been sold and will be shipped to Korea after the show.

Specifically designed for booklet labels, the VEGAplus BOOKLET is a robust and versatile converting line, which can run with web widths of up to 450 mm and enables operations such as the inspection of pre-printed labels, the application of the booklet label on the base label, variable data printing, lamination and die-cutting.

PRATI will showcase the VEGAplus BOOKLET during Labelexpo and demonstrate the benefits of the off-line production of booklet labels on the PRATI system, including higher speed and enhanced productivity if compared to in-line finishing systems. Visitors can witness how the pre-printed reel is being inserted in the VEGAplus which then applies the leaflet in register with the base label. The booklet labels are laminated using a rotary lamination unit and then die-cut in register and rewound.

The VEGAplus BOOKLET can produce five kinds of labels: standard, coupon, flat- curved- and thick booklet. With a simply change in the parameter set up, booklet labels can be applied to both flat and round surfaces, disregarding the diameter, and this without wrinkling.

The VEGAplus BOOKLET reaches a maximum speed of 75 m/min and secures a faster job change and considerable waste reduction. The applied servo-technology provides for the greatest accuracy in leaflet positioning and die-cutting, to comply with the strict regulations of the pharma industry. The VEGAplus operations are intuitive, thanks to a touch-screen panel program, offering ease of use and quick set ups. The self-diagnostic software indicates when interruptions or defects occur.

Versatile, complete and long-lasting solutions for finishing
"PRATI machines are extremely robust and reliable, with low maintenance requirements and guarantee a fast return on investment," affirms Chiara Prati, Sales Manager at PRATI. "They are very modular and can be configured to meet customer specific requirements." "We are committed to offering label printers the opportunities to diversify, expand or improve their production range with PRATI quality products and services," Chiara Prati concludes.
