MAN Roland to Exhibit DICOpack at the LabelExpo in Brussels

Press release from the issuing company

(Sept 26th – 29th, 2001), MAN Roland is exhibiting their DICOpack digital printing system together with Cartes Equipment. They demonstrate an in-line combination of digital printing and laser die cutting, enabling users to print and die-cut labels and cartons in a very flexible, cost-efficient and fast way. What makes this configuration especially powerful is the unlimited flexibility of digital printing for short print runs down to a single copy, even with individualisation in text and image, together with the flexible cutting capacities of the Laser which does not require mechanical die-cutting shapes. For the first time therefore, it is possible to just take in the digital data of the product and adjust both machines electronically. This configuration is particularly suitable for label printers producing labels with frequent changes of images and shapes. DICOpack is the fastest colour digital printing press for label and packaging press in the market. It is available in a four-colour (CMYK) and a five-colour (CMYK plus white) version in two web widths: 320 and 500 mm. The Cartes Equipment Laser L 350-200 is a project specifically developed for the label production in the graphic industry. It takes in the printed web, cuts label shapes and feeds the web to the next machine which usually is a rewinder. MAN Roland, Offenbach and Augsburg/Germany, is the second-largest manufacturer of printing presses and offers the widest range of digital presses, both electrophotographic and digital offset. Cartes Equipment, Moglia/Italy, produces machines for label production, both for the textile and the graphic industry.
