Focus Label Machinery has announced a cooperation with TS Converting Equipment, manufacturer of the Elite Cameron range, to develop a hybrid coating and printing press.
The new unit, which is due to launch in the spring this year will have options to apply release coatings, hot melt coat, print, laminate, die cut, slit and rewind materials in one pass.
‘We have known Focus for many years and are excited to be developing the new press together,’ said Tim Self, director of TS Converting. ‘The new machine has huge potential in the self-adhesive laminate, tape and label industries.’
David Lee of Focus Label Machinery, added: ‘Our partnership brings together years of design expertise in different industries and the development will open some exciting new avenues for our printing technology.’
The new machine is said to be designed as a modular press with the ability to print on both sides of the web in one pass using UV Flexo or digital inks. Further details regarding the new machine are expected to be released in spring this year when both companies will proceed with the testing phase.
