Edale, the UK's leading manufacturer of flexographic printing machinery, is to showcase its new dedicated packaging press, the Sigma, at Labelexpo Europe 2003.
Developed from the design of its predecessor, the E430/510i, the Sigma is a "shaftless" machine equipped with the servo technology. During the show Edale will demonstrate a UV flexo shrink sleeve application developed for high impact container decoration. To guarantee heat management of the substrate the machine will be equipped with a water cooled UV drying system supplied by IST.
To complement the Sigma, Edale will also demonstrate a 4-colour UV flexo Alpha producing a cosmetic label on self-adhesive PP. The press will be running in line with a Matho waste management system that chops and compacts the matrix. The system is available with up to 5 colours and a range of options including cold foiling.
The introduction of the Sigma alongside Edale's award-winning Alpha compact press, Beta modular press and Webmastery service now gives a more complete portfolio of modern machinery for the labelling, packaging and carton industries, the company claims.
Edale will be found at Labelexpo Europe, held in Brussels 24 - 27 September, in hall 6 on stands 6i110 & 6G110.
