Xpress Labels invest in a Dantex PicoColour Digital Press

manufactured and supplied by Dantex Group. Xpress Labels is an innovative self-adhesive label manufacturing company based in, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, that prides itself on delivering exceptional quality labels to its customers. The addition of the PicoColour Digital Label Press to the company’s existing


flexo offering, scheduled for November, will mean that work which would usually need to be printed flexo can be produced digitally, expanding their capacity and growing their customer base. Rob Bagley, Commercial Director at Xpress Labels says: “We looked at other

digital presses, but the PicoColour offers high print quality as well as all the other features we were looking for and at the right price-point; for instance, one key driver for us was the inline die cutting on the PicoColour. We were offered a tailored package with no bolt-ons. It will suit the work that we do and will integrate well with our business”. Dantex launched their digital division in 2015, having served the labels and

packaging industry for nearly 50 years. Tel: 01274 777777

TRESU’snew XL5i coating circulator regulates unblemished application of high-viscosity, sensitive packaging varnishes


RESU Group's new XL5i Coating Circulator ensures precisely regulated, stable flow, and uncontaminated print

and coating, when applying sensitive UV and water-based flexo varnishes for packaging and label applications. A compact system with two speed-controlled

TRESU XL5i Coating Circulator for sensitive UV and water- based varnishes

peristaltic pumps, TRESU XL5i is easy to operate thanks to semi-automatic cleaning and timer settings.

Used in combination with a chamber doctor blade and customized open- cell anilox roll, TRESU XL5i provides fully enclosed circulation from the bucket to the point where the ink or varnish fills the anilox cells, thereby enabling pressure and control needed to delicately handle the medium. The enclosed system prevents contamination of air inside the chamber that can lead to foaming and undesired blistering of the printwork. Printing applications for which the XL5i are suitable include opaque

white, gold and silver metalure, pearl lustre, blister coating, scented, high- gloss, scented or silky soft touch effects, on folding carton, self-adhesive labels or metallised papers.

greyscale piezoelectric drop-on- demand printheads, designed for a wide variety of applications. The first release, the Xaar 502 GS15 O, is optimised for coding and marking applications. This meets the needs of manufacturers developing machines to print high quality late-stage product identification, such as text, product data, barcodes and graphics onto secondary packaging or directly onto shaped products and primary packaging. With the ability to print drop sizes from 15-75 pL the printhead can print up to 6 grey levels for high- resolution, intense blacks as well as fine text, quality graphics and smooth images on porous or semi-porous, low contrast surfaces such as cardboard outer boxes.

X Also included in the 502 family is Xaar’s TF Technology, which can be run

in Pulsed mode. This optional new mode recirculates ink behind the nozzles during non-printing periods only, ensuring maximum printhead lifespan.

DC Technologies, a leading global provider of precision measurement and control solutions, announces its new

compact 8000-SLIM web gauging system and SlimTrak scanner for narrow web applications. The new SlimTrak scanner offers several benefits for narrow web

processors. First it is designed with a small cross section footprint for compact installations. SlimTrak’s cross sectional area is less than 150mm x 150mm (6” x 6”) and

supports web widths from 200mm (8”) to 1600mm (63”). Next, the scanner electronics can be mounted up to 20 meters (65ft) away from the scanner, allowing them to be located in a more suitable environment for enhanced reliability and maintainability. NDC’s 8000-SLIM system delivers fast, real-time measurement and tight

control of key product parameters such as thickness, coat weight, basis weight and moisture. It offers a rich feature set from NDC’s 8000 web solutions family and can support up to 2 SlimTrak scanners, each with one sensor. By combining speed, accuracy, control and information into an intelligent open architecture, this cost- effective system represents an ideal solution for narrow web process lines. The result is a well- designed system based on solid technologies and applications knowledge from NDC.

Healeys opts for Schneiderand expands its cutting capabilities

guillotine with a new Schneider Senator S-Line 115H "PCC" model supplied by UK and Ireland agent, Friedheim International. Commenting on the purchasing decision Philip Dodd, managing


director of Healeys Printers, said: The Polar was limited to handling B2 work but we decided that B1 was the way forward in terms of greater productivity. A visit to DRUPA enabled us to view what was on offer in the B1 format, and we were persuaded that the Schneider was a highly cost- effective option. Fortunately Friedheim had one in stock in their showroom and the rest is history!” For further details of the complete range of Schneider Senator guillotines and materials handling equipment, plus other cost-effective finishing solutions for conventional and digital print, bindery, packaging and converting applications, contact Friedheim International:
