Spanish label converter Adamtec invests in SPGPrints' DSI® UV-inkjet press at Labelexpo Europe

At Labelexpo Europe, Adamtec, a label manufacturer of Valencia, Spain, has purchased a six-station SPGPrints DSI digital UV-inkjet press, to meet the demand for short production runs from customers in the food, chemical and automotive industries. The 330mm (13in.) press features the standard CMYK, white and a digital primer.

Jaume Crespo, General Manager at Adamtec, comments: 'From the trial results, and the support from SPGPrints' technical people, it was clear that DSI could give us the flexibility to offer variable data and the quality to deliver the consistency and high-impact branding solutions on which our brand and customers depend. Another influencing factor was the performance of SPG's inks, which gives us an opacity equivalent to screen-printing and strong resistance needed for industrial situations.'

The DSI press features as standard intermittent LED pinning between each colour station to ensure immediate curing and ink stability at fast speeds, and a chill drum to stabilise film substrates. This feature is of great benefit to Adamtec, which supplies high quantities of PP labels to the food and chemical industries.

With the addition of the DSI press, which will be installed in December, Adamtec shows its commitment to deliver quality labels to its customers. Adamtec will continue to deliver longer production runs with its two existing Flexo presses.

Mr. Crespo says: 'With the acquisition of the SPGPrints' DSI UV-inkjet press, we will be able to print individualized labels in the same production run, which we believe it is great value to our customers, and therefore a strong growth area for us. Our automotive customers, for instance, are seeking serialised battery labels and the ability to tailor information for each region. The DSI press will enable us to adapt label designs at short notice, and schedule these jobs with minimal material waste or setup time.'
SPGPrints is located at Labelexpo stand 8A10.
