GIDUE launches new M7 combination press for labels and packaging

Nuova GIDUE s.r.l  a manufacturer of Printing and Converting machines for the Labels and Packaging industry, presents a new press line during an International Open-House held on the 14-15-16th of February 2012, at its premises in Florence, Italy.

The new M7 Xpannd line displays full platform configuration, to allow for free interchangeability of printing and converting processes. Each Offset unit, as well as Flexo, Screen units etc.  can be removed and replaced on any platform. The press configuration can be changed in minutes, as well as the new format cassettes (Mini-Cassette). The M7 line is integrated in a "lean" working cell (the "Organizer") to allow for easy and effective change-overs. The press has been designed to fit into limited spaces (7 platforms-3 dies in less than 8 meters) and to convert a wide range of products (flexible packaging, labels, carton boxes).

"We wanted a compact, ultra-flexible Labels and Packaging press. Floor spaces are limited, markets change rapidly. M7 can grow and adapt to multiple substrates or processes" says Sauro Salvadori, M7 Project Manager. "We ended up with a top quality printing press, with the "look" of an easy and accessible tool."

During the Open House in Florence a new version of the "futuristic" M5 Digital Flexo GIDUE press is also shown in operation. A new enhanced SW and HW will be unveiled to perform less than 20 meters  of waste with automated "digital" set up (pressure and register) without intervention of the operator.

Federico d'Annunzio, MD, comments: ""With M7 GIDUE completes the 3 years program to renovate its product offer. We now serve the Labels and Packaging industry, from narrow to mid web, with a wide range of innovative technologies to produce added value and high quality performances".
