WEST HARTFORD, Conn – OMET Srl of Lecco Italy, recently unveiled the new Varyflex V2 at the “Welcome to the Future” event hosted at their factory. Two hundred people were present for the event that marked a new chapter for the company and the industry. The guests were a mix of customers, journalists and prominent figures in the industry, who were able to demo the press later in the day. It was clear to the event attendees that OMET Srl, the company known for “Innovation with Passion,” has succeeded once again in advancing the Offset Printing Industry. This time with a lower waste and cost printer, yielding higher efficiency.
OMET’s offset technology originated in 2008 with the first offset interchangeable cassettes; now seven years later, one of the many selling-points of their design is the ability to print variable sleeve repeats in widths of 670mm (26'') to 850mm (33'').
