Illert Etiketten has recently installed an OMET VaryFlex-F1 press at its production facility in Hanau, near Frankfurt. The new OMET is an 8-color unit with a web width of 670 mm. Illert, which has always sold itself as a simple label manufacturer, has now become an all-round partner to its customers, offering consultancy advice on the best solution for solving packaging problems, whether they are self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging or folding cartons. It is the great versatility of its new OMET press that allows Illert to make significant progress in this direction.
"OMET was the first manufacturer to successfully install package printing machines with a 670 mm web width,” said Maximilian Illert, who, with his Mother,Mrs Monika Illert, manages the company today, He is one of the driving forces behind Illert Etiketten’s new consulting directive. “We carried out strict tests on the VaryFlex-F1 and other competitive machines, which proved conclusively that the print quality of OMET's press was superior on all flexible materials, even the most difficult ones like 12 micron BOPP films."
Now, new opportunities are opening up for Illert Etiketten. "On our VaryFlex-F1,” concluded Maximilian Illert, “we are able to create new types of self-adhesive labels, such as peel & seal, and other projects that we are working on, which are still secret. VaryFlex-F1 was the right choice to develop our business."
