OMET has recently added a new embossing unit to its X-Flex series to print relief labels.
Fitted with a tool side adjustment system and embossing depth adjustment, to allow it to use adhesive materials of different thicknesses and obtain various depths of relief, the embossing pressure on the new unit is highly sensitivity, thanks to the oil system of Kocher + Beck that is used.
Aimed at minimising machine downtime, the new X-Flex embosser has been designed to allow the operator to detach the upper embossing roll without losing timing with the lower roll. This allows for fast re-webbing in the event of a web break. It also allows the tool pair for the next job to be prepared offline. This significantly reduces machine stop times by avoiding the preparation phases of double-sided adhesive tapes and printing plates, plate timing and control of the embossing depth. All the operator has to do is insert both embossing cylinders into the machine.
For 12” to 20” embossing formats, an additional base unit is not required, because it can be done through the pair of rolls on the first die-cutting on the X-Flex. For different sizes, a dedicated frame is required.
