Daco TD350P / TD430P- Flexographic Label Press with In-line Finishing

Manufacture 1 to 3 colour and colour-washed labels cost-effectively. Labels are produced in one pass, printed and finished with just one machine and operator. Reduce your labour content and improve your profit margins.

Daco TD350P Flexographic Label Press with In-line Finishing


The Daco TDP flexographic label press is the ideal machine for manufacturing labels automatically with little operator input. The TDP has a high capacity UL 1m (39.37″) unwind module to keep master roll changes to an absolute minimum. In addition, the SVT 4 spindle servo-driven turret rewinder offers quick change over time, which, coupled with a 12.1″ colour touch screen HMI operator interface, makes the machine interactive and user-friendly.

The Daco TDP flexographic label press has 1 to 3 quick-change servo-driven flexo print stations and the option to add a UV inkjet system for variable data and personalisation. The flexo print unit(s) allows the manufacture of weigh scale, colour-washed, and retail labels in one pass. Ideally suited to simple one / two colour work, quick make-ready, high production speeds, and little operator input are crucial to producing good profit margins. The machine can be configured with either 1 or 2 servo-driven rotary die stations. Reduce your wastage and labour content and improve your profit margins.

The Daco SVT turret rewind module utilises a unique patented double-sided tape system for attaching the web to the cores, and the finished rolls are closed using a label printed by an onboard thermal transfer printer. This eliminates the need for expensive and complicated hotmelt gluing systems, which often cause problems for both machine operators and end-users. Electronic job storage, a large colour 12″ intuitive touchscreen control, and minimal mechanical settings make the machine very simple to set up and operate.

The operator can select from either length or a given number of labels per roll, and the machine will then automatically cut and transfer the web to the cores without stopping, significantly improving the production of the flexographic label press.
