Muller Martini's VSOP Selected Again by Belmark

Press release from the issuing company

Belmark Inc. to install the Muller Martini VSOP Web Offset Press

One of the nation's largest packaging manufacturers has once again chosen Muller Martini's variable sleeve offset printing (VSOP) technology. Belmark Inc. plans to install its second VSOP in their Wisconsin facility by the end of this year.  The VSOP web offset printing press can accommodate a wide range of paper, film and paperboard substrates.

Belmark has built a solid reputation within the packaging industry and is known for its quick turnaround and consistent quality. Selecting Muller's VSOP was understandable. Commented Karl Schmitt, Belmark's President, "This is our second VSOP.  We've been very happy with the performance of the one we already have, and that's given us the confidence to purchase an additional one. We're very confident in Muller Martini and their ability to service us and this equipment."

The VSOP web offset printing press for flexible packaging and folding carton markets uses simple and rapid size changes to its advantage. Thanks to sleeve technology, print sizes can be changed easily without having to exchange the entire printing inserts, so the process is not just quick and simple, but exceptionally cost effective for print lengths that change frequently particularly in comparison to flexo and gravure. VSOP printing units are infinitely variable for all print image lengths, giving printers an incredibly flexible printing press that is suitable for an almost endless order spectrum, as a complete job changeover is possible within a matter of minutes.

VSOP is a total solution for a wide range of applications and is used in the following markets:

  • Label printing:  wet-glue labels, roll labels made of paper or film, self-adhesive labels, in-mold labels, shrink films
  • Flexible packaging printing:  films, laminate, food packaging
  • Cardboard box printing:  folding boxes, beverage packaging

Belmark serves a variety of industries including dairy, snack food, durable goods, and pet food. It intends to utilize the VSOP offset press in the folding carton market. The press will be equipped with both offset and flexo capabilities, along with an automatic splicer, auto register control, EB curing, and in-line diecutting.
