Acquisition of a fully automatic litho labeling system offers opportunities to employ the electrostatic method for high-speed, long-run labeling production.

Artisan Complete recently acquired Automatän's Model EM, a litho labeling machine that applies electrostatic method technology in its adhesive application process. Able to spot and full mount to doubleface corrugated sheets, diecut sheets, and knocked down boxes, the laminator allows for fast, easy set-ups in labeling over a variety of board and label sizes.

"Automatän is a great company with a terrific reputation in the industry due to its superior technology, product performance and customer service," said Kevin Widder, President/CEO of Automatän. "With the trend toward large-format labeling in point-of-purchase displays and in-store advertising, our products allow our customers to add high-quality graphics to corrugated packaging."

Capable of mounting labels onto substrates with a minimum size of 10" x 6" for labels and 20" x 16" for boards, the machine can handle maximum formats of 82" x 65" for labels and 120" x 80" for boards. Using electrostatic method technology, no mat material is required, minimizing waste. The system also ensures even glue coverage with no glue voids or excessive glue lay-down. Combined with a vacuum and band roll system and sheet preload system, the machine offers complete control of the litho sheet for precise registration.

Offering high-speed production, quick change over, operator convenience, accurate registration, and superior quality, the EM provides savings opportunities for the production of high graphic printing, packaging and display solutions. With industries turning more and more to spot labeling as an attractive market, Automatän laminators are the equipment choice around the world, delivering on customer requirements and adding to client's success by improving packaging graphics.
