Teknek demonstrates label solutions at North Print & Packaging

Teknek will be exhibiting at the North Print & Packaging show. Collaborating under the name of Label City Teknek will be exhibiting alongside other leading suppliers to the label market. 

The concept was born from a desire to offer a comprehensive platform to both current and potential customers helping them to gain a snapshot of the latest innovations in the label sector. Label City will give an overall understanding to companies with a future ambition of label printing of the best component parts within which to set-up a production facility capable of manufacturing and printing high quality labels.

Contamination is a key issue for label producers. Particles landing on the web from a variety of sources are transferred to the printing plate leading to hickies and inclusions. This creates considerable downtime as the press needs to be stopped, the plates cleaned and the press restarted.  Moreover, the misprinted material will need to scrapped at considerable cost to the manufacturer. Teknek’s clean machines are widely used by the label industry to negate these problems. A uniquely formulated elastomer roller gently removes particles down to one micron in size from the web surface leaving it contamination-free ready for printing. The particles are then transferred on to a special reverse-wound pre-sheeted adhesive roller.

“Teknek is delighted to be participating in Label City alongside other key suppliers to the label sector,” comments sales and marketing manager Ruaridh Nicolson. “The customers of label manufacturers are demanding ever greater levels of quality and the manufacturers themselves are looking for effective ways to increase efficiency and cut waste. Our clean machines help them achieve both objectives.”
