Barcelona-based Conver Autoadhesivos has taken delivery of a Domino N610i inkjet label press to make the move from flexo to digital label printing.
Specialising in the printing of self-adhesive labels for industrial and commercial distribution, the company was prompted to try digital printing in response to increased customer demand for shorter print runs and reduced lead times. 'It became apparent that it was no longer economical to continue running these jobs on flexo presses and we realised that it was time for us to start our digital adventure,' said managing director David Brugalla.
Conver came to the decision that inkjet was the most appropriate and cost effective solution for most of its existing short and medium run jobs, and to open up new business opportunities in the future.
'We selected the five-colour Domino N610i label press due to its excellent print quality, high productivity and its cost-effective production costs,' explained Mr Brugalla. 'The high opacity of the white ink will also allow us to move jobs over to the Domino press that we have previously silk-screen printed.
'We intend to use the N610i label press to reduce our delivery times for short and medium run jobs, whilst maintaining our print quality policy at competitive costs,' he added.
