Dalkeith labelling specialist invests in new finishing machine

A B Graphic International (ABG) recently installed a fully specified Digicon Series 3 finishing machine at Dalkeith-based Labelling specialist NSD Labels.

The investment allows the business to replace and upgrade existing older Digicons. NSD Labels offers digital label printing and full-colour UV flexo combination printing, including UV screen with in-line foiling and embossing.

Described as modular in design, NSD’s new Digicon Series 3 has been configured to meet the firm’s exacting production requirements. The machine includes two flexo heads, a 25-tonne flatbed hot foil unit with a swivel head allowing foil to be fed both along and across the web, a doming embossing section, two laminating stations, two flatbed screen printing modules, unwind and rewind, die-cutting and auto slit knives.

Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director, said, “As an existing customer, NSD Labels’s investment in a highly specced Digicon Series 3 is indicative of the value they place in ensuring that their market ambitions are maintained. We fully share their drive and commitment to always delight the customer, and we look forward to following their progress in the future.”

Chris Hogarth, MD of NSD Labels, added, “It is important for NSD Labels to continually be investing in the latest and best technology and equipment. We required a solution that could be configured to meet individual finishing requirements for labels and flexible packaging. It has a wealth of functions from rotary and semi-rotary printing and die-cutting to laminating, slitting, decoration and perforation – the possibilities are endless. It also allows us to offer shorter print runs, higher quality, greater complexity and faster delivery, ensuring that we meet our customers’ requirements.”
