A record number of DigiLase orders for ABG
10 March 2021
Fuelled by the e-commerce boom, leading print finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG) has taken a record number of orders for its innovative DigiLase 4.0 digital finishing machine in 2020. And with web-to-print companies continuing to upscale their output substantially, sales are likely to be strong throughout the current year.
Launched in September 2018, ABG has installednumerous DigiLase machines, equipped with various configurations, throughout the world. A growing order book in 2021 is also ensuring that this continues to be another record year for ABG. Many of these machine orders, whichinclude ABG’s automatic workflow and the inkjet digital embellishment module, are currently in production and due for installation in Mexico, the USA, the Netherlands, UK and Germany, in the coming months.
DigiLase 4.0 incorporates state-of-the-art laser cutting technology, which is ideal for direct from web sticker and label production. A reduced web path and a decrease in the necessary lead-in/out material both help reduce waste. The minimum job length through the DigiLase has been dramatically reduced to allow the maximum flexibility in short runs, and file downloading takes milliseconds, thereby allowing several jobs to be processed simultaneously, from unwinding to laser cutting and rewinding.
“DigiLase 4.0 is without a doubt the most accurate laser machine on the market currently,” said Floriana Montella, DigiLaseproduct manager at ABG.
“Case in point is one of our customers, custom stickers and labels business, StickerGiant, based in the US, who has just placed an order for their 6th DigiLase 4.0 with full automatic workflow. We have a dedicated technical team comprising laser engineers, software developers, and mechanical designers support DigiLase 4.0, who constantly work on new developments and upgrades to suit customers’ needs. We are very excited about upcoming releases that we will be announcing shortly, including new options and increased speeds, so watch this space!” she added.
As customers are currently unable to visit trade shows or showrooms to see ABG’s DigiLase 4.0 in action, the company has an additional demo machine in their Barcelona showroom, where customers can book a remote demo send their files to get customised samples.
