SMAG Graphique will be presenting new screen-printing machines for conventional and digital label converters at Labelexpo Europe, to be held in September this year.

The manufacturer will highlight the new high-speed semi-rotary flatbed screen-printing station that operates at speeds up to 30m/min at the show. With a maximum print width of 340mm and a 340mm repeat length, the print station will be operating mono-colour on a Digital Galaxie, in conjunction with a semi-rotary flexo station and a semi-rotary die cutting station.

"This high-speed flatbed screen printer enables label converters to deliver the advantages of screen printing including opacity, chemical resistance, and tactile effects more easily and cost-effectively," said Stphane Rateau, GM, SMAG Graphique. "Visitors to our stand at Labelexpo will be able to see this printer in action, along with our full range of products for label converters."

Also being showcased is the entry-level finishing and converting series for digital label converters-the I-CUT 330 (330mm) that offers speeds up to 40m/min, and the foil saver, designed to save foil - and costs - by electronically calculating the pulling length of the foil used by the flatbed foil press and the Digital Galaxie comprising unwinder, semi-rotary flexo station, the new high-speed screen printer, and AVT Helios 100% inspection systems, semi-rotary die cutting, slitting and dual rewinding unit.
