Leading trade-only printer Cambridge Label (Cambridge, Ontario), the largest printer of trade labels in Canada, has self-installed a DC330 MINI Label Converter from manufacturer Grafisk Maskinfabrik A/S of Birkerød, Denmark in just one day using the OEM’s Visual Guide. With built-in functions such as semi-rotary die-cutting, varnishing, laminating, slitting and more, the new machine will help the company to better accommodate the growing demand for high quality labels and shorter turnaround times. Cambridge Label specializes in manufacturing custom-printed labels and shrink sleeves in quantities as few as 100 up to several million, using a wide selection of stocks and adhesives and an “infinite number” of sizes and styles. Popular label options include digitally printed labels, variable-data labels, laser die-cut labels, cold foil, hot foil stamping, embossing and more, for a wide range of industries, especially wine, food and cosmetics. For over 20 years, the family-owned trade printer has excelled in producing high quality, technically challenging labels on deadline.
The latest generation of the compact DC330 MINI Label Converter digital label finisher has been redesigned and features new electronics, a newly designed control panel and an updated user interface. The drive train of the DC330 series is completely servo-driven and offers low maintenance, exceptional tension control and precise registration. High performance output can reach up to 72 metres per minute (236 feet per minute). Web widths can vary from 50 to 330 mm (2 to 13 inches), and substrates from 50 to 200 µm (2 to 8 point) can be accommodated. Precise cutting that reduces waste begins within the very first rotation. No station movement or mechanical set-up is needed, and the unit’s updated touchscreen shows configuration, spindle directions and web-up.
