West Hartford, CT, September 17, 2019— Matik announces that SEI Laser, world leader in laser technology, will exhibit the latest enhanced version of Labelmaster at Labelexpo 2019 (stand 9C57), in two models with web widths of 350 and 600 mm. With full digitalization, from order receipt to shipment, converters using the new Labelmaster can reach a new level of speed and productivity.
Labelmaster, the most complete and professional modular system for “roll to roll” and “roll to sheet” digital die cutting and finishing, is the perfect solution for the production of self-adhesive labels in all sectors: industrial, wine, food & beverage, beauty, textiles, flexible packaging, promotional, converting and many others. During Labelexpo Europe, visitors will have the opportunity to see the laser processing different types of labels and special finishes on different materials – such as paper, PP and textile. It will allow visitors to appreciate laser versatility and its excellent quality, the result of the latest work from SEI Laser engineers from Curno (BG).
“As we arrive at Labelexpo 2019, it is proving to be the acknowledged acceptance of the digital business model, now indispensable in all (or almost all) labeling and packaging segments,” says Ettore Colico, Converting Director at SEI Laser. “It is no longer used just for well-known special effects, but with the confidence and respect for a digital technology that has reached complete maturity. Jumbo rolls, automatic motorized knives and ‘wide web’ will be the key points of the SEI Laser stand in Brussels.”
More efficiency: Labelmaster is specifically developed to meet the demands of converters and label producers looking for great performance. In an increasingly competitive market, the QR-code/barcode reading system allows users to change work on the fly, ensuring high productivity and completely eliminating setup times. Lastly, the control software, compatible with most popular digital workflows, maximizes efficiency for many types of work: web to labeling, web to stickers, and web to packaging.
Over 100 m/min: SEI Laser will present two configurations of its ‘Best in Class’ laser solution for labels at Labelexpo 2019: Labelmaster in 350 and 600 mm web configurations. Labelmaster, now in its third generation, will be equipped with four laser heads to reach a constant speed of over 100 m/min, equaling or exceeding the productivity of traditional diecutting and finishing systems. The speed is kept constant by the ‘traction control system’, which works in synergy with the control unit monitoring the longitudinal deviation of the printed substrate, guaranteeing perfect registration and high-quality laser processing.
Labelmaster is a modular system, customizable upon purchase or after it is installed, with different finishing options: diecutting, cutting, microperforation, easy-open, engraving, coding and, thanks to optional, different finishes: semi-rotary flexo printing/ varnishing, semi-rotary hot stamping, inspection, control and slitting.
