UK based, Impression Technology Europe (ITE) is expanding its Eclipse range of label cutting, slitting and finishing machines with three new models. All are cross market machines that sit just as easily in the world of small order production as they do in bulk supply.

The LF330 digital label finishing machine is described as ‘the bigger brother’ of the established LF3. The specifications for the new model are based on the original, but have been expanded to handle larger media packages as well as increase productivity.

The LF330 boasts double digital label cutting heads giving the user the option of single or double cutting. In single blade operation, the machine can produce up to 5.1 m/min whilst in twin blade mode this rises to up to 10.2 m/min. It has a web width of 100 mm to 330 mm and can handle rolls of media up to 400 mm in diameter.

As with other machines in the Eclipse range, this is a compact machine making it ideal for either the start-up business or the established label printer looking to add productivity to their business.

The second of the new models is the Eclipse UW-1 label un-wind device ideal for post production jobs. It has a web width of 100 mm to 220 mm and can accommodate rolls of media up to 650 mm in diameter. It has, as standard, a loop sensing system with either automatic or manual operation and an un-wind speed of up to 35 m/min.

The third of new models is the Eclipse RW-1 finished label rewind device, which comes with three knife slitting blades as standard. It has a rewind speed of up to 35 m/min and can accommodate rolls of media up to 400 mm in diameter. It has a twin finished label rewind system with the ability to forward or reverse wind independently as well as a loop-sensing system with automatic or manual operation as well as a label counter with pre-set and auto off.

The company’s aim with its range of Eclipse machines is to maximise production in the least possible space, benefiting not just those who are starting out in the industry, but also those who are looking to expand production without investing in extra floor space.
