RPC bpi protec Worcester has invested c.£1.7 million in a new flexographic printing press and slitting machine for the production of reel fed labels.
Ideal for applications such as water, soft drinks, cooking oils and milk, the specialist labels material offer excellent tensile strength for faster application speeds and the elimination of web breaks. The strength of the material also allows thinner gauge material to be used for valuable weight reduction. In addition, this delivers more labels per standard reel to help minimise changeover times.
The new flexo press produces high quality labels in up to 8 colours for effective on-shelf impact and differentiation, with tight tolerances for accurate application onto bottles. Equally important, it has the flexibility to produce short runs in order to respond quickly to changing market demands.
With in-depth knowledge of key end-markets, RPC bpi protec’s comprehensive sales and technical support services will work with customers in the development of specific solutions to meet their individual requirements.
