Label printer Gavin Watson, of Glasgow, UK, believes its new, specially configured eight colour Komori Lithrone 828 with a coater and UV dryer will give it a competitive edge.

Says managing director Drew Samuel: “We believe there’s currently only one other eight colour litho label press in the UK and Ireland, so this puts us in a market leading position for the printing of wet glue labels.”

Also designed to print on plastics, the new press will make a major contribution to the services the company offers its clients in the food, alcoholic and soft beverage industries, pharmaceutical and security markets both in the UK and Europe.

Drew Samuel says: “It will excite our clients’ designers and marketing departments, who are always looking to produce complex and multi colour labels. Requirements for more than six colours are increasingly common and the use of different substrates give our clients’ products an increased shelf life against their competitors. Another key attraction is that the new press is able to produce such products at a competitive price.”

The new Komori joins existing four and six colour Lithrone 28s in the factory.
