ALS Engineering Label System Is Fully Automatic

LAGE, GERMANY | ALS Engineering has delivered a label production system said to manufacture adhesive labels continuously without any machine stop at job changes. Up to 80 different varieties of adhesive and pressure-sensitive labels—completely different in format, color, and motive—are produced within each hour. Company says the user produces those in-line in high quality, from raw material up to the assembled and ready-to-be-shipped label web, with no manual intervention.

The overall system includes an inkjet printing system with high-resolution dynamic printheads guaranteeing excellent print quality. The inks used are said to enable printing on many substrates without any additional pretreatment and to be scratch-resistant and to display high light-fastness.

In addition to CMYK, white and spot colors can be supplied and implemented. Directly after print the web passes an integrated laser cutting unit, reportedly ensuring precise registration that accurately processes even the most delicate shapes. The whole system employs digital technology, so no plates or punching tools are required.

The system will be on display at Labelexpo Europe, September 29–October 2, Brussels, Belgium.
