A B Graphic International (ABG) has teamed up with HP Indigo to develop non-stop winding technology, providing a significant enhancement in the automation capabilities of the V12 Digital Press, HP’s flagship narrow-web printer.
The new non-stop unwind and rewinding system from ABG integrates into the V12 production line as a single platform.
It has been designed with innovative guarding measures, ensuring operator safety and it offers capacity to reach speeds of up to 120m/min.
According to ABG, the new technology delivers the best tension control in the market, making it highly reliable for various applications.
Non-stop technology delivers several key advantages such as boosting the productivity of both printing presses and converting lines and enabling more efficient and streamlined workflows.
Moreover, the system contributes to an improvement in product quality, ensuring consistent and precise winding processes. And because of better tension control through its servo technology, it helps to reduce material waste.
The V12 technology has already been purchased by All4Labels and Eshuis in Europe and Brooke and Whittle in the US, as they aim to enhance their printing and converting operations.
ABG global sales director Matt Burton said, “Key to ABG’s leadership in print finishing is our ability to create solutions for the market as it evolves. With the addition of ABG’s non-stop winding technology, label printers will be able to maximise the potential of the V12 press”.
Both, HP Indigo V12 Digital Press and ABG’s non-stop winding technology will be demonstrated on the HP Indigo stand at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe in Brussels.
