ABG’s JetFx - DigiJet module opens doors for Springfield
Hull-based Springfield Solutions, a leading brand management, digital print and media business, has recently taken delivery of a JetFx - DigiJet module from print finishing equipment specialists, A B Graphic International.
Initially purchased at LabelExpo Europe last September, the installation was delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions, but has since been successfully integrated with Springfield’s existing Digicon Series 3 finishing press. The module helps extend Springfield’s range of label embellishment options.
Commenting on the investment, Springfield’s Matt Dass, joint managing director - Innovation, said: “We are delighted to have the JetFx - DigiJet module finally installed. And having it retrofitted over a weekend to allow for social distancing, was easily the best install ever.
“The module will enable Springfield to create amazing varnish and foil effects, tactile finishes and embossing/debossing embellishments. Being perfect for short runs, our digital package offers no tooling costs, variable data, personalisation and dramatically reduced lead times. It’s a perfect fit that will open many doors to all our customers.”
As a digital embellishment module, JetFx - DigiJet for integration on the Digicon Series 3 converting line, gives an offline, fully digital system allowing for multiple processes in one pass, including spot varnishing, cold foiling and tactile screen. Main features include: two inkjet heads with UV pinning and UV curing, automated cold foil throw-off, a shuttle system for inspection and waste reduction, chill rollers for sensitive materials, pre-press software and food compliant fluids.
“Springfield has been a valued ABG customer for many years and we look forward to seeing the results of their investment in the future. The JetFx - DigiJet module shows that ABG has the ability and expertise to provide a finishing solution that works seamlessly with all technologies within the digital label print environment, whilst adapting to meet the requirements of all consumer label markets.”
