Labelexpo Americas round-up

After attending several label industry events around the world in 2022, this month’s Labelexpo show was a stand-out. We were struck by the high attendance and a buzz on the showroom floor that we haven’t seen since pre-covid times. People came from a long way away, too: the far reaches of the US, Canada, Mexico, and Latin America.

Most notable was the huge interest in automation tools. We had dozens of conversations about our auto-positioning slitters and the different vision inspection systems that integrate with our machines. There were three on display at the show:
  • EyeC ProofRunner on a 26" KOR LW1-600
  • BST TubeScan on a 13" KOR SR2-350
  • AVT Helios on a 13" KOR SR2-350 with auxiliary web on vision system module

The KOR AS3-350 slitter was also on display. Shown here, it's one of our most sophisticated automation add-ons, and is interchangeable with other KOR slitter cartridges so that you can quickly adapt your KOR machine to finish different substrates. Just slide it into place and recall your job settings for fast setup.

Machines on display

The KOR SR2-350 from our S-Series Inspection Slitter Rewinders was shown as part of ESKO’s vision system offering, specifically, the AVT Helios automatic vision inspection system. This machine is ideal for economical short-run standard and filmic PS label finishing. The auxiliary stand allows for additional performance add-ons prior to entering the vision inspection area, including inkjet printing, Corona treating unit, and ink curing lamp. This allows 100% of your finishing in one pass.

The LW1-660 was the featured machine in our booth. It handles 26" (660mm) wide shrink films, flexible packaging, and pressure-sensitive labels. It has the true flexibility of a hybrid and doesn't compromise on productivity.
