Installation Takes Place at Company’s Glendale Heights, IL Technical Center
Glendale Heights, IL (July 17, 2017) — Expanding its role in the narrow web industry, All Printing Resources (APR) announces the installation of a BOBST M1 Flexo label press at the company’s Glendale Heights, IL technical center. APR’s technical center is the only demo facility for BOBST narrow web presses in North America.
The new, 14” eight color BOBST press is designed for high-definition flexo jobs requiring fastest changeover. The shortened web path results in minimum waste, set-up times and high registration tolerances. The optimum flexibility and footprint of the M1 gives label converters a high-performance, economical option for producing high definition flexo labels for all end-use categories.
The M1 press comes with BOBST’s SnowBall™ converting technology, minimizing matrix breaks during production due to the short distance between stripping and rewinding. A servo-driven stripping cylinder enables ideal stripping tension and less downtime. The APR demo press also showcases BOBST’s Laser Set™ 360 degree pre-register and automatic registration system.
Dave Nieman, President and CEO of APR, comments, “The new BOBST M1 press joins the M5 press system that was installed at our demo center in December. By having both presses on site we are able to demonstrate short run solutions for any budget and all label application formats. Here at APR we are constantly working with converters to optimize their process control standards. The label printing industry is more competitive than it has ever been and it is essential that converters know how to optimize job-to-job repeatability and color control. Having these two narrow web flexo presses on hand allows our demo center to become an extremely effective classroom and to help our customers in each step of the label production process.”
