Antony Cotton, sales manager at Focus Label Machinery, was enthused about the outcome of its recent open day. He said, ‘We would like to thank all our partners, suppliers and visitors who attended over the two days and helped make the event another great success. We were very pleased with the turnout and look forward to building on this and making the event a regular feature in the calendar. We believe that having multiple live demonstration models, along with the support of our partners and their respective technology, make this a unique event with a great opportunity to informally network whilst seeing live equipment demonstrations.
The Proflex SE servo was producing high quality, four page peel and reveal labels, the e-flex was printing on transparent BOPP film, producing an outstanding opaque white, thanks to the combination of the very latest LED ink technology and drying system.
In addition, there was a lot of interest in the FS330 blank label converter/slitter-rewinder with Lundberg waste matrix collection and compactor.
But, the star of the show, was the d-flex Hi-Q digital inkjet hybrid press, featuring the latest Konica Minolta KM1800i heads, printing at speeds up to 50 metres per minute.
‘We were delighted with the interest in all three presses and speaking to our partners, their feedback was also very positive in the interest shown in their products,’ said Anthony.
Partners at the vent included Industrial Inkjet Ltd, Phoseon Technology, Herma UK, Flint Group, Meech International, Nazdar, Lundberg, Cheshire Anilox Technology and Business Asset Warranties.
Focus Label Machinery has also recently appointed James Barnes as sales and marketing executive, so this was also an opportunity to meet him.
James’ role is to support the team on the sales and marketing side as the company continues to grow and expand. ‘I am delighted to have been offered the opportunity to work for such a well known and well respected company in the industry and look forward to supporting all the team,’ he said. ‘The family environment of the company has made me feel at home immediately but seeing all the work and technology that goes in to the development of the latest presses excites me. I know from a previous role dealing with printers with Focus machinery how high they are regarded and will be proud to represent the company and help drive them forward.’
