Digicon 3 investment helps Limpet Labels maximise growth

Packaging Solutions

A B Graphic International (ABG) has supplied Wrexham based Limpet Labels with a highly specified Digicon Series 3 finishing system. The investment provides a futureproofed and modular based finishing line to match the label producer’s growth expectations, while enabling them to maximise finishing department efficiencies.

Limpet Labels is a self-adhesive labels manufacturer with over 25 years experience in the printing industry. Traditionally a multi-flexo press based operation, specialising in the chemical, hygiene and oil sectors, the company has since grown to become one of the leading UK label print companies to embrace a digital/flexo operation.

Requiring the ability to produce hybrid and embellishment work, as well as make multi-page peel and reveal labels much more efficiently, Limpet Labels’ Digicon is configured with peel and reveal functionality for multi-page label creation, a semi-rotary flexo station for spot colours and spot varnishes, and a laminating tower for cold foiling and super varnishes. The Digicon also features auto based i-score and autoslit modules.

‘We knew ABG had a great reputation within the label industry, but after meeting up with the team and seeing the operation at Bridlington, we were very impressed with their vision for the future of digital finishing,’ said Nathan Williams, Limpet Labels’ operations manager. ‘The automation features and higher run speed of the Digicon Series 3 will enable us to continue to hold steady lead times in what proved to be an incredibly busy and challenging year

‘Going forward, we will continue to utilise this efficiency and explore where future investments can push this even further. Due to the modular nature of the Digicon, we are already looking at field upgrades. One such upgrade could be to complement our embellishment offering, which has recently seen an increase in interest from our customers. We are already exploring the next potential investment from ABG.’
