12 May 2015

Presstec is gearing up for the much anticipated OMET special launch of the new iFLEX label printing machine to be held on the 19th May 2015 in Milan, Italy.

As one of the global agents for OMET, Presstec will be represented by their Executive Sales Director, Mr Linton Hendricks. The new iFLEX label printing machine, designed and manufactured by OMET is a revolutionary product that ushers in a new era for narrow web printing with the first application of lasers in flexography. The iFLEX press is characterized by further breakthrough solutions that simplify the printer's work and optimize the machine performance. The exclusive event will witness the unveiling of the new Varyflex V2 Mid-Web Offset printing press for flexible packaging and carton (available in widths of 670mm {26²} and 850mm {33²}). The machine Offset group with Sleeves, designed by the R & D Team of OMET and protected by patent, offers unprecedented print quality, maximum flexibility, improved accessibility to the press units and ease of use. "The new iFlex addresses and solves the issues of easy setup with use of lazers, very short web path and quick print to print easy register technology", says Linton Hendricks, Sales Director for Presstec. "It is not an improvement but rather a revolution in label printing which delivers the efficiencies label printers need to secure their bottom line", concludes Linton.   This Debut is one of many events organized by OMET during the Converflex week (19-23 May). OMET will attend the Show on a large stand (#C200) presenting a TECHNOLOGY GALLERY with a selection of the printing solutions offered by the Italian company, market leader for technological innovation. The fair will be held in the exhibition grounds of Rho / Milan in conjunction with 5 other exhibitions: Ipack-Ima, Meat-Tech, Innovation Fruit, Dairy-Tech Intralogistica Italia. OMET will also as from May 20 to 22, open the doors of its Lecco plant, reachable from Fiera Milano in less than an hour with a free shuttle service, to customers who want to watch demonstrations on Varyflex V2 Offset, iFLEX, but also on other machines in OMET's range like XFlex X6 and XFlex X4. All shows can be visited with the same ticket of Converflex.
