Omet to launch the new XFlex X7 at Labelexpo Europe

Omet is showcasing three machines on its two stands (C49 and C53, hall 6). This includes the launch of the Omet X7, the latest addition to the XFlex line, which can be seen live in action at the show. This machine is a flexo printing machine for labels and flexible packaging with 670mm (26 ") web width, able to carry out the most complex jobs in a simple way. Omet is also showcasing its XJet powered by Durst, the hybrid flexo + inkjet machine, and the first and only machine currently on the market able to produce shrink labels with combined printing.

The third machine on display is the small iFLEX, offering an 8-color flexo UV-LED configuration. This solution allows considerable energy savings and perfect drying at high speed. Unlike other entry-level machines on the market, iFlex is equipped with several new and highly sophisticated features that will help printers to reduce waste during the production process, time for job changeover and overall maintenance costs. 

Omet also showcases a joint project with Ritrama and Spilker, Core Linerless Solution. This is an innovative self-adhesive film engineered to be transformed into a single ply Linerless web, ready to be dispensed using a special linerless module. This allows significant improvements on efficiency and environmental sustainability of the printing process, particularly in food and beverage, home and personal care.
