Contiweb demonstrates business efficiencies for short run production at Labelexpo Europe 2019

Contiweb will use this year’s Labelexpo Europe 2019 to demonstrate how packaging and label print providers can enhance business operations and expand profit margins with the Contiweb Thallo web offset press. Offering the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for short run production, the Contiweb Thallo allows print businesses to maintain a competitive edge and a healthy margin when outputting smaller jobs. With the ability to create new plates in a matter of minutes, the system dramatically slashes time-consuming job changeovers. This allows companies to increase productivity and exceed brand owners’ expectations by reacting quickly to competitive marketing campaigns.

With a Thallo print unit on the stand (Hall 7, Stand 7E59), visitors will witness rapid sleeve changeover in real-time through live demonstrations.  For businesses seeking to expand their product offering, the Contiweb Thallo is equipped with an advanced web tension control system, enabling print providers to not only print on paper and cardboard but also stretchy substrates. This opens the door to a wider array of applications including in-mould labels, wrap around labels, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging for food and non-food. With a vast range of samples on stand, attendees will discover the high quality and versatility achievable with the Contiweb Thallo first-hand.

Comprising variable cut-off dimensions and the option to print grids and block colours side-by-side, the Contiweb Thallo paves the way to new levels of flexibility and production efficiencies when using web offset. Engineered on a modular inline platform, the Thallo is fully compatible with all flexo and rotogravure systems, offering even greater flexibility and seamless integration. This minimises workflow disruptions, allowing companies to maintain uptime.

‘Whilst web offset adoption for flexible packaging is still in its infancy, the Contiweb Thallo delivers an exceptional competitive edge, plus variable web widths essential to packaging printers,’ said Erik Andriessen, Marketing Manager at Contiweb. ‘As the world’s largest event for the label and package printing industry, Labelexpo Europe 2019 is the ideal platform to showcase how print businesses can maintain a competitive edge and enjoy a healthy margin with our flagship solution.’
