Lemon Labels Installs a Daco DF350SR Digital Label Finishing Line
Lemon Labels, Sittingbourne – UK, install a 3rd Daco Solutions machine, a Daco DF350SR digital label finishing line. The machine was purchased to finish labels from their toner-based digital machine and to produce plain labels for desktop inkjet and toner-based machines.
The DF350SR is capable of applying a UV varnish or can laminate the labels for added protection. The Daco DF350SR has seen significant upgrades to both its mechanics and software recently and now has an increased maximum production speed of 65m/min (213 ft/minute). This coupled with the ability to remove the 22” magnetic die cylinder and replace it with our standard full rotary dies allows the die-cutting of labels to a maximum speed of 175m/min (575 ft/minute) in register.
Trevor Voisey commented “Thank you for the outstanding advice and service received in the purchase of our new machine. As you know, this is our third Daco machine, we knew to expect a top-quality, well thought out and reliable machine, but were still blown away by some of the features of this model.
The DF350SR is the perfect next step for us, alongside our existing DTD250 machines this will not only allow us to increase capacity to deal with our growing demand. The DF350SR gives us the flexibility to offer in house label tinting by using a RotoMetrics tinting kit, varnishing and single colour print with the UV flexo station, previously we had to outsource this requirement with varying degrees of success.
The Semi-Rotary running mode also allows us to die cut to registration and finish short to medium run digitally printed label work produced on our dry toner digital label printer.”
Daco Solution’s Sales Manager, Mark Laurence, it’s great to receive another order from Lemon Labels. Their first machine was a Daco DTD250, they purchased a few years ago when they started to produce labels in house rather than brokering them, and a second machine quickly followed this.
After several conversations with Trevor regarding the production of short-run labels for the ever growing market for blank labels for the desktop inkjet and toner-based systems, we recommended the Daco DF350SR. With only die plates to purchase as the machine uses just one magnetic die cylinder, it enables Lemon Labels to produce short runs cost effectively with the added benefit of back marks if required by utilisation of the flexo/coating unit.
