Graphium is a fully integrated solution that combines workflow, digital and flexographic print with automated finishing, delivering a highly productive solution for the manufacture of short, medium and long run labels, packaging and cartons.
Edale’s partnership alongside FFEI led to the creation of the Graphium Hybrid, a printer that provides the efficiencies of digital printing technology alongside the more traditional, robust flexo printing and finishing. This allows customers to choose a significantly wider range of solutions for their printing requirements.
As the packaging and labelling market demands more time and waste efficiencies, Edale have manufactured a machine that allows printers the opportunity to invest wisely in new technologies that support the current market trend and are flexible enough to maximise future commercial growth.
“Edale has been involved in the design and development of web transport technology for single pass inkjet since 2002 and can observe the commercial potential that Graphium holds for the future of the packaging industry” says James Boughton, managing director.
“Developing the web transport, hybrid print and finishing technologies for Graphium over the last 2 years with FFEI has resulted in significant productivity advances.”
The Graphium engine is robust, reliable and is said to deliver exceptional print quality on a wide range of substrates and is exactly what is required to be part of an industrial print and finishing solution.
“Edale will be exhibiting the Graphium Hybrid at this year’s LabelExpo across all four days” says Bernhard Grob, Edale Export sales director, “demonstrating a wide range of processes and samples, Edale’s experienced team of technicians and designers will be on hand to discuss this innovative machine in more depth.”
The Graphium Hybrid will be on the Edale Stand 7D39 at Label Expo in Brussels, Belgium from 29 September ‐ 2 October.
