Edale: Edale and FFEI announce partnership

The British made FFEI Graphium

GREAT BRITAIN The inkjet press Graphium is the product of years of experience in colour management, workflow and scanning as well as inkjet knowledge. A very British made machine, with a collection of companies working together to produce Graphium. Contributing key technologies are Cambridge located Xaar providing the 1001 print heads, FujiFilm Speciality Ink Systems providing Uvijet Graphium inks and print and converting manufacturer Edale supplying the web transport, based on their FL-3 conventional platform.

PETER WALSH, FFEI’s Head of Sales & Marketing for Digital Print, commented »Edale were a natural choice for FFEI, they had the experience and know-how we needed to make the Graphium project a success«. The Graphium is aimed at those printers and converters looking to produce labels, packaging and specialty print. Supporting up to five digital modules, and six flexo stations, Graphium is able to integrate optional flexo and finishing stations inline for conversion in a single pass.

Currently available in 330 mm or 410 mm web widths, there is also the option of a wider version of the Graphium should there be demand in the future. Since the launch at Print 13 Chicago, the company has seen six orders placed with a number of strong enquiries currently being followed up from Labelexpo Europe.
