Edale Alpha helps BelInterMarket move into flexo
BelInterMarket is a well established label printing company based in Brest, Belarus. The company previously produced labels by letterpress machinery but wanted to move across into flexo printing; it has achieved this by the recent installation of a five colour Edale Alpha 250mm wide compact flexo press.
The company had been looking at the Alpha for some time and placed the order in early 2011 but due to the unforeseen financial crisis in Belarus the order was delayed until summer of this year when it was finally installed in the factory in July.
There have now been over 170 installations of the award-winning Edale Alpha press. The Alpha boasts a footprint of just 2.5m² and a web path of less than 12m. Suitable for companies looking for improved productivity and profitability from today’s short run lengths, quick job changes are achieved through the ergonomic design coupled with the quick release plate roll mechanism ensuring accurate registration is achieved in the shortest time. The press is suitable for either UV or water-based inks and is capable of printing a wide variety of label, packaging and ticketing substrates from 50-250 microns.
BelInterMarket went to the Bobruisk Printing House open day held early this year and hosted by Edale’s Belarusian agents; Tusson and Ukraine representation MacHouse – alongside members of staff from Edale. BelInterMarket had a chance to view both an Edale Gamma and an Alpha and live demonstrations and go through the many benefits of the machine with the print and technical departments.
“We decided to purchase the Edale Alpha due to the simplicity and the excellent print quality achieved from the press,” explains chief of production Mikhail Soroka. “Over the years we have come across several companies with Edale Alpha’s within Belarus and could not fault them. The service that we received from the sales and technical team at Tusson were invaluable in our final decision.”
Situated near the Polish border in a stunning area of Belarus BelInterMarket is happy to offer an open house policy should anybody wish to view the Edale Alpha press.
