Dual ABG Digicon 3 installation at online print house
10 February 2021
Leading print finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG), has supplied two of its Digicon Series 3 finishing machines to German business, etikett.de, a leading online b2b label manufacturer. The investment will help the company supplement production and expand capacity, while furthering their market penetration ambitions.
Both machines were installed at the company’s premises in early December 2020, in-line with the German government’s pandemic guidelines and restrictions.
Established in 2011, etikett.de aims to become Germany’s market leader for online label production, due to their competitive pricing. Benefitting from lean work processes and efficient technology, the company’s state-of-the-art equipment and 70-strong team provide a high quality and reliable offering.
Being modular in design, both of etikett.de's new Digicon Series 3s have been configured to meet their production requirements. One of the machines features ABG’s Fast Track die-cutting module; ideally suited for large jobs of 1500 linear metres or more, the world’s fastest semi-rotary die cutting system can run at 150 metres per minute. Also included on this machine is an auto-slit module, which features a time saving label gap sensor and automatically setting knives.
etikett.de's second machine includes ABG’s Big Foot 50-ton capacity hot foil and embossing module. Featuring a rotatable foil head that can foil across and along the web, allowing a wide choice of foil options, together with much deeper embossing and debossing, the module also includes a special coating unit for imprinting with UV coatings. ABG’s die-cutting module and a 100% camera inspection unit are also included.
Klaus Nordlohne,sales manager for Germany,said: “etikett.de's investment in two high-specification Digicon Series 3s provides a good insight into their ongoing market ambitions. And in testament to the resolve of the ABG team and our customers that, despite the challenging circumstances, we are delighted that we can continue to push forward with important machine installations.”
