Grafotronic’s Hi³ and DCL² converting machines join another inspection slitter rewinder purchased by Labelprint24 in 2020
Online printing company Labelprint24 has invested again in Grafotronic equipment, this time adding Hi³ and DCL² converting machines.
Labelprint24, with its head office in Zeithain, Germany, and branch offices in Frankurt as well as Poland and Czech Republic, develops and manufactures packaging from cardboard, foil and paper for product manufacturers and companies of every size and trades throughout Europe.
To meet the company’s continuous growth plan, Labelprint24’s management decided to invest in more Grafotronic equipment to increase production capacity. The new machines join another Grafotronic inspection slitter rewinder purchased in 2020.
The Grafotronic DCL² 550 has been purchased as a finishing machine for digitally pre-printed labels. The DCL² will be connected inline with a digital press, although with a buffer system and an additional processing system, the machine can also be used in a tandem configuration.
The Grafotronic HI³ 570 has been specified for slitting and inspection tasks, and to optimise Labelprint24’s label production process and boost its productivity, aided by features such as automatic knife positioning system and automatic web cutting and start of new cycle.
Stefan Harder, owner of Labelprint24, said, ‘The DCL² is equipped with a semi-rotary die-cutting unit, which can follow the production speed of the digital printing machine of 100m/min, even with a machine width of 550 mm. When we made our purchase decision, this was a condition that Grafotronic was able to meet.’
With all Grafotronic’s machinesn 100% modular, this allows Labelprint24 to upgrade its finishing as the market evolves.
Mr Harder continued, ‘Today we are faced with constantly and rapidly changing requirements for our print products and the modular design of the machine offers us long-term investment security.’
