Muller Martini all set to exhibit at the LabelExpo Europe 2011
At this year’s LabelExpo trade fair, to be held in Brussels (Belgium) from September 28 to October 1, 2011, the company will be showcasing its expertise in the label and packaging printing segment with web widths of 520–850 mm at three different stands.
Over the past few years, Muller Martini has earned a reputation as a strong partner with over 100 installed machines for label and package printing. In this show at the L110 stand in hall 7, Muller Martini will be exhibiting a VSOP printing unit to showcase infinitely variable size web offset printing and its potential applications. This press features sleeve technology, meaning the print size can be changed quickly and easily, without the need to change all of the printing inserts – two light and handy sleeves are the only parts that need to be exchanged to change the print size. This is a real advantage, and particularly cost-effective, for print lengths that change frequently. Additionally, the VSOP allows companies to make use of the benefits of offset printing, including low costs and super short procurement lead times for printing plates. By using standard offset printing plates, considerable savings can be made in comparison to other printing processes, such as flexo or gravure printing.
The Package Printing Zone (hall 12, stand V10) will give trade fair visitors an insight into how efficiently web offset printing can be used in the package printing segment. High-quality print products produced on Muller Martini web offset printing presses will be shown at this stand. Another highlight will be the information on printing safe foodstuff packaging using electron-beam curing, to be presented by Muller Martini at the stand belonging to printing ink manufacturer Sun Chemical (hall 5, stand E80). The stand will be showcasing industrially manufactured packaging that has been printed on VSOP printing presses by combining offset and flexo printing techniques.
