Edale, the UK’s leading printing and converting manufacturer, will be hosting an informal Open Day at their purpose built factory and showroom, based on the South Coast, on Thursday 9 May between 10am – 4pm.
Demonstrations will be shown on a number of presses in the range; the award winning Alpha, Edale’s compact label and ticketing press and the next generation FL-3 label and flexible packaging press which has had some additional features and options added, and is now available in web widths of 350mm or 430mm with an optional rail system. As well as this, there will also be a Gamma printing and converting system, a press ideal for printing on substrates from 12 micron film up to 600 micron carton board, and can be tailor-made to include a number of different value added options. The Gamma is a highly adaptable press with the ability to be modified as a short run folding carton line when run inline with the Edale FDC-510. This flexible press is also reconfigurable as a single pass machine to produce scratch off tickets and vouchers with the capability to run over 200,000 CR80 size cards or 1,000,000 pins per hour. Other machines available for viewing include an FDC-510 flatbed die cutter as well as a number of Beta and FL-3 models going through production ready for customer acceptances; these will be reaching all ends of the globe from Thailand to Mexico, and many places in-between! Visitors will also be some of the first to view the next innovation to come through the Edale factory ready for its launch in 2014 – the FL-5, 760mm mid web packaging machine. The day will include a tour of the factory and demonstration unit and also a walkthrough of the offices giving a chance to see Edale’s in-house design team at work on a variety of projects. Edale’s Managing Director, James Boughton, will also use the day as his platform to announce some very exciting industry news, partnerships and developments.
