Mouvent has launched three label printers, which can all print up to seven colours on a large variety on substrates, including paper, self-adhesive and wet-glue labelstock and flexible materials, at production speeds of up to 100 m/min with a native resolution of 1200 x 1200 and optical 2000 dpi.
Central to the digital innovation of these machines is the Mouvent Cluster, a digital printing technology based on a highly integrated cluster, which represents a quantum leap for the industry.
The new printers, revealed at Labelexpo 2017, included:
• The LB701-UV mini label press, the smallest high-productivity label press on the market. It is compact and ergonomic, allowing even the smallest print shops to take on high quality and highly flexible label production.
• The LB702-UV label press, the most productive digital label press in the narrow web segment, allowing fast and easy industrial label production. Variable data printing (VDP) enables label personalisation and serialisation. It also has a very compact footprint.
• The LB702-WB label press, a game-changer in digital label production, using only 100% water-based Mouvent Inks, making it 100% free of volatile organic compounds and 100% food safe. This represents a real paradigm shift in high-volume label production. It is now possible to produce long lasting, high-quality, eye catching labels, using an environmentally-friendly printing method, all at a very economical cost.
The LB702-UV and LB702-WB will go to their beta sites for final pre-market testing in the coming weeks after the show.
