The addition of a Mark Andy Evolution flexo press has increased production capacity for Dublin-based Label Tech.

The Evolution, which was installed in the Summer is a 330mm 8-colour press equipped with full UV curing. It has been specified with an unwind roll lift, two die stations and a sheeter and conveyor. In addition, turn bars, a cold foil facility and laminator are mounted on overhead rails, and there is a BST inspection camera. For roll-to-roll operation, a duel framed rewind with roll lift is also installed.

Managing director James Costello, explained, ‘Chosen for its extensive production capability, the new Evolution is the first of three presses that will be installed over the next investment phase in Label Tech’s growth. The big attractions of the Mark Andy Evolution are its speed and flexibility that will serve an increasing order book and growing customer base. Meeting and exceeding market demands is even more possible now through this machine’s versatility and scalability.’

Mark Andy, UK & Ireland sales manager Paul Macdonald said, ‘It’s another example of Label Tech putting quality and investment in the latest technology at the forefront of its business. Its increased arsenal of capability will enable customers to secure faster turnaround times and unrivalled quality on every order.’
