Deluxe Packages - the Yuba City, Calif.-based converter - and Nordmeccanica Spa, the Italian Coating and Laminating machinery manufacturer, jointly announce that the two companies came into agreement for the supply of a new, innovative coater-laminator, Nordmeccanica Duplex Combi Horizontal Two.
The machine, selected by Deluxe, is the top-of-the-line in the conversion of substrates for flexible-packaging applications. This machine is developed to water base laminate two substrates and then apply an anti-fog dispersion in register to the pre-printed web in one pass. The machine will feature a full optional package that will include automatic non-stop, shaft-less turrets and a powerful drying system developed for the higher conversion speeds achievable by a Northern American converter in water-based lamination. The machine will be equipped with the latest release of the Nordmeccanica signature technology for in-register coating. The system works non-stop full speed, during reel changeover and allows for over 60 percent savings on scrap rate. The new machine will include the unsurpassed web handling technology that made Nordmeccanica the supplier of choice of all quality converters globally. With this new investment, Deluxe will confirm itself as a quality leader in the Northern American conversion industry.
