At Labelexpo, Gidue is showing a special, “deluxe edition” of the Xpannd combined offset/flexo press, including in-line hot stamping and flat embossing, in addition to cold foil. The converting equipment, all positioned on a rail, includes a new gearless hot stamping unit that can be equipped with standard engraved brass cylinders or magnesium plates. It is mounted on guides to ease extraction for quick job change or cleaning.
The special storage area in front of the machine has also been extended to include the new hot stamping change-over facility. The servo driven hot stamping unit, which is monitored by an intelligent camera for total automatic lateral and transversal pre-register and register control, features a motorized printing pressure system that makes web transportation independent from the converting process.
All the machines on the Gidue stand in Brussels are equipped with a new intelligent video camera, which monitors the ink in-line density and the printing consistency during operation.
