Edale announces May open day
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Print and converting manufacturer Edale is to hold an open day at its Hampshire factory and showroom on 9 May.
Between 10am and 4pm visitors will have the chance to view a number of existing Edale presses in operation as well as a preview of the manufacturer’s FL-5 760mm mid-web packaging machine, set to be launched in 2014, and a tour of the site.
Demonstrations on the Alpha label and ticketing press, the next generation FL-3 label and flexible packaging press - which it launched in January - with new features such as an optional rail system and increased web widths, will take place throughout the day.
Additionally visitors will see a Gamma printing and converting press, which can be run inline with the Edale FDC-510 flatbed die cutter, and a number of Beta and FL-3 models currently in production for international customers.
Meanwhile Edale customer Douglas Storrie Labels, which co-developed the FL-3 press with the manufacturer, has been awarded gold for Best Flexo Print on Film in the narrow web category of the European Flexographic Industry Association awards.
Edale UK and Ireland sales manager Chris Chappel said: "The quality that Douglas Storrie Labels are printing on their Edale FL-3 is second to none, and this award certainly helps to cement this."
