THE NETHERLANDS •  Multi-Action Labels, a self-adhesive label laminator and converter based in Quebec City, Canada, has expanded its short-run printing operation after installing SPGPrints’ DSI UV-inkjet label printing press.

Operational since 2012, the 330mm (13”) wide, eight-colour DSI press at Multi-Action is a complete print-converting line for single-pass production and complements three existing ETI flexo lines.

Jonathan Bourbonnière, President of Multi-Action Labels, comments: “the press delivers identical quality to flexo, giving us the flexibility to switch all analogue jobs shorter than 10,000ft [3048m] to the digital process.”

With run lengths averaging nearly 260m (850ft) on their DSI, Multi-Action is offering just-in-time solutions with usual lead times of just 48 hours, as well as occasional same-day deliveries.

The DSI at Multi-Action has been customised with options including orange and violet, to cover over 90% of the colour gamut, opaque white, and a digital primer. Intermediate LED pinning and a chill drum are integrated, and the press runs at speeds of up to 35m/min (114fpm). Inline converting options specified included a flexo coating station and semi-rotary diecutting technology supplied by AB Graphic. The press uses SPGPrints’ proprietary inks.
