ABG investment helps future-proof CV Labels’ offering
Leading print finishing equipment manufacturer, A B Graphic International (ABG), has recently supplied pharmaceutical labels specialists, CV Labels, with an SRI Omega Inkjet press. The machine, configured for the pharmaceutical market, includes a Rea Jet HR Inkjet system to allow multi lane coding in high resolution, ABG’s integrated fleyeVision 4k 100% inspection system with complete touchscreen operation and barcode and numbering modules.
Both ABG and CV Labels have a 30-year history of collaboration, which began with their first machine, an Onda Letterpress, and, more recently, CV Labels’ investments in a number of slitter/rewinders.
“We have had a highly productive relationship with ABG for many years and value their machines for their quality and longevity,” said CV Labels managing director, Bob Veich. “With an increase in the number of our customers requiring consecutive numbering as standard across their labels, together with ever-increasing regulation in our industry, we have future-proofed our offering.
“The new Omega press with the variety of added modules is the perfect choice for us. It will enable us to reduce lead times and increase security to an even higher level, as it inspects the printed web with a high-resolution camera and prints consecutive numbers or codes simultaneously. The Rea Jet HR Inkjet system has 6 heads configured to allow multi-lane coding in high-resolution.”
Being easy to customise and with a wide range of options to meet particular business requirements, the Omega SRI provides unmatched process speed, guarantees 100% inspection and sets the benchmark for cost-efficient finishing of labels for the healthcare and pharmaceuticals markets.
“I have personally worked with CV Labels for 29 years and I am delighted to see our relationship continuing to flourish. Given their glowing reputation in pharmaceutical, healthcare and medical label manufacture, I know how important production quality is to them. The Pharma SRI, together with its coding and numbering modules is ideal for their needs and I look forward to continuing to support their future growth and development,” said Mark Hyde, ABG’s sales manager for UK, Ireland and Australasia.
