Spande goes to Labelexpo
Chinese machine supplier Spande will attend Labelexpo Europe 2019 for the first time in the company’s 10 year history. The company will present the S7 Series flexo press, launched at a large event at its Shanghai factory in May 2019. Chairman Steven Ye is excited to launch in Europe: ‘This is our first show on such a big international stage, and the first step in our global market strategy. We look forward to meeting European customers, and introducing them to our intelligent, productive, easy to operate flexo printing solution.’
The European introduction of Spande and the S7 Series comes just four months after launching in China, but following great success in the home market, the company is ready to start the next phase of its global market strategy. ‘After the demo in May, we have sold several presses to top label customers in China and received great feedback, so we are ready to share the technology on the international market,’ said Steven. Spande is a high tech corporation with research and development, manufacturing, sales and service departments. The company was founded in 2010 and since then has achieved impressive results providing finishing technology to the Chinese tobacco packing market. Investing into the label market since 2014, Spande launched its first full rotary finishing line in 2017, and its first high speed roll fed die cutting line in 2018. After 46 months of intensive research and development work, the S7 Series flexo printing machine was presented in Shanghai in May 2019. The S7 Series is available in 370 mm, 450 mm, and 520 mm web widths, with printing speeds up to 200 metres per minute. S7 Series presses have eight servo motors in each printing station, features the i-Pressure system, which automatically recalls and loads precise printing pressure, and the i-Vision intelligent registration and impression system, which ensures registration corrections at each printing station, independently, and at any moment – during machine start up, job changes etc. Benefits for the customer include intelligent set up, short make ready times, and minimum waste. The company is on stand hall 4, stand 4A40.
