Argentina-based tea bag packaging firm Mai has bought a four-colour Alpha flexo press machine from UK-based printing and converting press manufacturer Edale.
The Edale Alpha compact flexo press comes with water based drying and a compact design of 2.5m². The modular design of the machine ensures that a wide range of value added options can be retro-fitted.
The material calliper adjustment of the system provides the ability to run a wide range of label, packaging and ticket substrates from 50-250 micron.
Mai manufactures tea bag packaging machines, with a separate printing department in which they print the tea bag labels and envelopes.
Mai president Guillermo Mai said the company chose an Edale Alpha because of its versatility and the capability to adapt to its width of paper band. Our jobs need versatile, compact machines, as we print a lot of different tags in short runs.
