A B Graphic International (ABG), has launched its flagship Digicon Series 3 in a wider web width of 430 mm. With more of its customers now moving to a wider web, the move is indicative of the company’s response to ‘customer-led innovation’ – a core ABG value.
With thousands of Digicon Series 3 installations worldwide, the 430 mm model retains all existing modules of the 350 mm machine, including flatbed screen and Big Foot 50-ton hot foil emboss unit with swivel head. Providing improved efficiency and performance, the new wider width machine is available in a left-to-right format only.
The state-of-the-art Digicon Series 3 modular system can operate at up to 150 m/min in full-rotary mode or 64 m/min in semi-rotary mode, and can run inline/offline with a SGTR (turret rewinder) for a straight-to-box solution.
The flatbed screen provides the ability to offer exceptional embellishments in silkscreen with fast set-up and increased speed and coverage. It can also produce vibrant colours for maximum impact. The Big Foot 50-ton capacity hot foil and embossing module, offers multiple foil feeding across and along the web, creating dynamic effects and finishes that ensure a competitive advantage. Both modules can be jointly fitted on the Digicon Series 3 430, enabling foiling and embossing in one pass to produce the finest of labels.
As with all Digicon Series 3s, the 430mm is fully compatible with fleyeVision, ABG’s highly acclaimed camera inspection and editing capability, providing automatic selection, 100% inspection and rejection of rolls with errors, with no interruption to production.
“Having the Digicon Series 3 available in 430 mm, demonstrates that we are ahead of the market in listening to customers and helping them convert wider digital webs with the highest quality finishing from ABG,” said Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director. “We already have a growing order book for the wider format, which shows how popular the wider width is likely to be.”
