Investing in Short Runs

GEORGE, SOUTH AFRICA | Label Leaders, a printer of self-adhesive labels, has installed a new EDM200 semi-rotary, servo-driven UV flexographic printer from Rotocontrol.

“We plan to utilize the EDM200 in short-run production of generic labels requiring a change in the description of the product,” reports Craig Stange, factory manager at Label Leaders. “The speed and ease of job setup and changeover in addition to the flexibility in producing smaller runs of unique labels led to our decision to invest in the [equipment].”

The EDM200, which uses sleeve technology for both print and anilox cylinders and works with chambered doctor blade technology, is designed to work mainly as an overprinting machine.
