Digicon 3 installation provides upgrade at NSD Labels
A B Graphic International (ABG) has recently installed a fully specified Digicon Series 3 finishing machine at Scottish Labelling company NSD Labels. The investment allows the business, based in Edinburgh, to replace and upgrade existing older Digicons, while maintaining its market-leading position for local and global companies in the food, beverage, healthcare, medical and chemical sectors.
NSD Labels, formed from one of Scotland’s longest established print businesses, offers a centre of excellence for digital label printing and full-colour UV flexo combination printing, including UV screen with in-line foiling and embossing. The company also specialises in high-end, unique and complex labelling solutions.
Being modular in design, thereby creating a clear and competitive advantage for any print business, NSD’s new Digicon Series 3 has been configured to meet their exacting production requirements.
The machine includes; two flexo heads, a 25-tonne flatbed hot foil unit with a swivel head allowing foil to be fed both along and across the web, a doming embossing section, two laminating stations, two flatbed screen printing modules providing quality screen varnish, unwind and rewind, die-cutting and auto slit knives.
Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director, said: “As an existing customer, NSD Labels’s investment in a highly specced Digicon Series 3 is indicative of the value they place in ensuring that their market ambitions are maintained. We fully share their drive and commitment to always delight the customer, and we look forward to following their progress in the future.”
NSD Labels managing director, Chris Hogarth, said: “It is important for NSD Labels to continually be investing in the latest and best technology and equipment. We required a solution that could be configured to meet individual finishing requirements for labels and flexible packaging. It has a wealth of functions from rotary and semi-rotary printing and die-cutting to laminating, slitting, decoration and perforation - the possibilities are endless. It also allows us to offer shorter print runs, higher quality, greater complexity and faster delivery, ensuring that we meet our customers’ requirements.”
