Omet demonstrates X6 in offset/flexo setup at Labelexpo

At this year’s Labelexpo, Omet is marking its 50th anniversary by participating with an “innovative booth using uncommon materials and a daring architecture”.

But the firm also promises three technological highspots: an international presentation of the XFlex X6 with offset groups with sleeves; the return of the XFlex X4; and news on the firm’s tailored offering for flexible packaging converters.

Omet’s X6 will be presented at Labelexpo in a configuration that mixes flexo and offset technology. New offset units are equipped with light sleeves to enhance rapidity of change, user-friendliness and general ergonomics, said the company.

The XFlex X6 with sleeve offset is aimed at packaging printers who need offset for maximum replicability. The mix of offset and flexo also allows for cheap prepress, ease of ink management and the inner process flexibility.In the flexo+offset configuration, the XFlex X6 is offered in widths up to 670mm.

Meanwhile, the XFlex X4 on show in Brussels will handle print jobs that enhance the potential of the machine in quality and reliability, said Omet.

To offer an alternative for packaging converters using sheetfed or CI presses, Omet is also now offering Varyflex presses in larger widths, up to 850mm.

With the overhaul, Omet is aiming for the machine to compete directly with traditional larger presses for packaging printing by offering faster startup, reduced wastage at makeready, interchangeability of processes and all-in-one-pass quality printing results, said the firm.
