A B Graphic launches flagship Digicon Series 3 in wider 430mm web width
2 November 2022
Leading print finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG), has launched its flagship Digicon Series 3 in the wider web width of 430mm. With more of their customers now moving to a wider web, the move is indicative of the company’s response to ‘customer-led innovation’ - a core ABG value.
With thousands of Digicon Series 3 installations worldwide, the 430mm model retains all existing modules of the 350mm machine, including flatbed screen and Big Foot 50-ton hot foil emboss unit with swivel head. Providing improved efficiency and performance, the new wider width machine is available in a left to right format only.
The state-of-the-art Digicon Series 3 modular system can operate at up to 150m/min in full-rotary mode or 64m/min in semi-rotary mode, and can run inline/offline witha SGTR (turret rewinder) for a straight-to-box solution.
The flatbed screen provides the ability to offer exceptional embellishments in silk screen with fast set-up and increased speed and coverage. It can also produce vibrant colours for maximum impact. The Big Foot 50-ton capacity hot foil and embossing module, offers multiple foil feeding across and along the web, creating dynamic effects and finishes that ensures a competitive advantage. Both modules can be jointly fitted on the Digicon Series 3 430, enabling foiling and embossing in one pass to produce the finest of labels.
As with all Digicon Series 3s, the 430mm is fully compatible with fleyeVision, ABG’s highly acclaimed camera inspection and editing capability, providing automatic selection, 100% inspection and rejection of rolls with errors, with no interruption to production.
“Having the Digicon Series 3 available in 430mm, demonstrates that we are ahead of the market in listening to customers and helping them convert wider digital webs with the highest quality finishing from ABG," said Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director. “We already have a growing order book for the wider format, which shows how popular the wider width is likely to be.”
