OMET Shows 3 Innovative Machines at Labelexpo Europe

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

New iFlex with laser pre-register, XFlex X6 with Flexo+Offset combination, JetPlus digital inkjet printing and UV LED Flexo curing 

WEST HARTFORD, Conn – On behalf of OMET, Matik, Inc.is proud to announce what is being referred to as the “Queen of the show” for Labelexpo in Brussels September 29th to October 1st.The iFlex 370mm (14’’) label press whose simple operation and great ergonomics of use have prompted interest among converters following its debut last May. Label printing has changed forever with the iFlex, as it is by far the “best in class” among entry-level presses. The iFlex is supported by tools designed to reach the best performance in terms of quality, rapidity of changeover, waste savings and manoeuvrability by the operator. 

The iFlex capabilities are referred to more specifically as the innovative pre-register and register devices that contribute to speed up the machine set-ups and job changeovers. Among these are iLight, a laser-based system supporting the printer to reach the best register in the shortest time, and iVision, a control system using video-cameras placed on each print unit for immediate register correction before the job reaches the end of the line. The iFlex converting section is a work of art as far as technology and simplicity in use are concerned: the Quick Change Die Cutting (QCDC) is a trolley with two separate parking spots that simplify the replacement of the die cylinder, while Rock’n’Roll is regarded as the best performing matrix waste rewinding system on the market. 

The XFlex X6 Offset, introduced 2 years ago in Brussels, has had an incredible success in sales, rapidly becoming the standard in Flexo+Offset label and packaging combination printing. The XFlex X6 Flexo+Offset press represents the ideal bridge between label printing and packaging printing as it mixes the highest Offset quality, researched by brand owners worldwide, with Flexo flexibility and completeness. This press is the best solution for converters handling runs of flexible packaging, shrink sleeves, IML labels and special tailor-made applications. 

With the XFlex X6 Offset 430mm (17’’) on display at Labelexpo, OMET will also introduce the Quick Change Die Cutting converting station as a booster of changeover speed and time saver. 

If you are ready for the Future of printing, XFlex X6 Digital, the third OMET printing machine on display at the Labelexpo, is the right press for you. XFlex X6 Digital 430mm (17’’) with 4-color digital inkjet unit JetPlus is the perfect choice when variable data, short runs or sampling are involved. Through XFlex X6 Digital you can print any digital file with no need for pre-press and the guarantee of high quality results. The combination with Flexo and a full array of in-line finishing and converting options widens the printing possibilities to levels never before seen. Flexo printing on XFlex X6 Digital will introduce a great innovation: UV LED curing, which will bring enormous advantages in terms of energy consumption and overall performance. 

Matik and OMET look forward to meeting all the customers, supporting partners and media at their booth and invites all label and packaging potential clients to stop by and experience, in person, OMET’s full range of solutions for label and packaging printing. With OMET, the Future of the Label and Packaging business is revealed. Booth 6C49, 6C53.
