The recent machine installed, MX2 flexo press, is 370-mm-wide with 8 colors, two dies, Delam/Relam, Cold Foil and Web Cleaner. The GIDUE MX2 press has all the top-quality components and technologies of GIDUE’s upper-class models. Its superb printing and register quality and speed of set up makes it the ideal choice of flexo press for all converters in the label industry.
The GIDUE M1, purchased by Links Labels & Tapes in early 2012, is also a 370-mm-wide flexo press with 8 colors and a unique configuration that allows the production of creative promotional coupons in one pass whereby a self-adhesive web is divided into 3 or 5 lanes, which are separated and then positioned on top of each other to produce a 5 to 9 page multi-color coupon at high speed (up to 120 mpm).
Based in Bourne, Lincolnshire, UK, SLPP has a history dating back to 1972 through a merger and several acquisitions. The business is privately owned by Reg Rudd and David Egan and has three other directors namely Darren Warman, David Shales and Darren Dutton.
The company is a leading player in technical labels and manufactures the complete range of labels from very basic and plain to multi-colored, including Wet & Dry peel multilayer coupons, all on numerous substrates and in various formats. Their markets include DIY, motor manufacturers, chemicals and they supply print management and other trade label companies.
Reg Rudd, managing director of SLPP, quotes: “The additional investment of another GIDUE flexo press will ensure we keep pace with an increasing demand for High Quality labels that our customers expect. GIDUE flexo presses provide consistently high quality labels at speed and with very little maintenance. This together with the installation and commissioning support given by GIDUE and Global Print Services was a key factor in SLPP’s continuing investment in the GIDUE brand.”
