Mouvent makes its US debut at Labelexpo Americas: Presenting its Cluster technology for digital label printing.

Mouvent is making its US debut at Labelexpo Americas 2018, and presenting its Cluster technology for digital label printing. The Mouvent Cluster uses extremely compact and lightweight clusters instead of fixed size print bars by color, arranging them in a modular, scalable matrix. The result is one system that can be adapted for all sorts of substrates, widths, and for all type of markets.

‘Mouvent recognizes the importance of the American label market, and we look forward to discussing our revolutionary technology with the attendees at Labelexpo,’ said Dean Haertel, sales, service and marketing manager for label machines for Mouvent in North America. ‘This is a first step for us in America, a great opportunity to meet some people and explain how the cluster approach will make digital label printing more accessible, more flexible, cheaper and simpler, while maintaining the highest quality standards.’

Mouvent is currently working on its tailored sales and service structure for the US market as well as on setting up a show room before offering and selling its solutions into the country. The company aims to launch the first of its innovations in America in 2019. 

So far, Mouvent has launched three digital label printers in Europe – the LB701-UV mini label press, which is the smallest high-productivity label press on the market; the LB702-UV label press, which allows fast and easy industrial label production at an incredible TCO; and the LB702-WB label press, which uses only 100 percent water-based Mouvent inks, making it 100 percent free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and 100 percent food safe.

The three label printers can all print up to seven colors on a large variety of substrates – paper, self-adhesive and wet-glue label stock as well as flexible materials – at production speeds of up to 100 m/min with a native resolution of 1200x1200 and optical 2000 dpi.

‘Mouvent brings a breath of fresh air to the digital printing industry,’ said Martin van Waeyenberge, global marketing and sales manager for label machines at Mouvent. ‘People who have witnessed our label printers during live machine demonstrations or carried out test runs on them were extremely impressed with their print quality. Providing highly innovative digital printing machines, for both UV and water-based high-quality label production, at a competitive cost, is what it’s all about.’
