Label Expo 2017 Review

The FLEXOR TEAM wants to thank all its partners, friends and customers for a great and successful show! We had a great time and we had great successes during the 4 days in Brussels in Belgium. With many machines sold during the show and more sales following shortly after the show it has once again been a pleasure to host all of you on our stand! Great coffee, beer and some special Polish delights were served next to interesting and innovative machinery.

We would like to thank all our Customers, Partners and Friends for their visits on our booth during the exhibition LabelExpo 2017 in Brussels. It was a great pleasure for us to welcome all and to have the possibility to show our machines live in production. We are very happy to have met all personally and our new design of the booth contributed to more effective and pleasant meetings with our customers. This edition of the exhibition was a great success in regards to number of visitors, discussions and started projects. FLEXOR is recognizable on all continents and has always the best feedback from its customers.” – Adam Robak, International Sales Director w EMIS.

A particular attention was given to the machine FLEXOR xCUT Pro – compact finishing machine for digitally printed labels with working width of up to 330mm equipped in an unwind, webguide with splice table, laminator, semi-rotary die cutting station, length slitting, matrix rewind and final product rewind with servo drive and expanding shaft. During the show the machine was demonstrated with a finishing speed of up to 55 m/min.

The second machine from the xCUT series was the machine FLEXOR xCUT for digital printing (memjet), laminating, semi-rotary die-cutting and length cutting in one run. It is a smart connection for full colour printing and finishing. The machine allows an economical production of labels on rolls in small batches, therefor it created great interest among customers who had not yet have the opportunity to print and finish self-adhesive labels directly after receiving an order.

Besides the xCUT series FLEXOR has presented also the latest inspection IS Series machine FLEXOR 440IS, the new horizontal generation of 100% inspection machines. The machine was integrated with a BST Tubescan camera and provides a short web path in the paper buffer (6 m) and working speeds of up to 300 m/min. The new generation ensures short braking distance, ergonomic and fast operation by the user.

As each time, the biggest impression on the visitors was done by the slitter rewinder with a double die-cutting module FLEXOR 380 2C. The machine was producing blank labels at speeds of up to 250 m/min.! The separate servo drives on the nip roller and each rewinder control the speed, position and torque. This allows an accurate regulation of the rewind tension and a fast reaction to speed changes – it impressed everyone during the presentation of the machine at the exhibition (Producing blank labels at a speed of up to 250 m/min.!).

The presented solutions were complemented by the TRW Series, the automatic turret rewinder FLEXOR 410 TRW – a four spindle turret rewinder with length slitting and hotmelt glue application on core and tail. The machine was operated by a special robot putting cores on the spindle and taking the ready rolls off.

All operators on the FLEXOR booth had a great assistant – the roll lifter FLEXI ROLL LIFT 800L, that was appreciated even by the most demanding visitors.
