FL3 – Highly productive, cost-efficient, quality label and packaging printing press

Completely modular in design and fully servo-driven makes FL3 as the best label printer system & the ideal choice for any business. The seven motors on each print station as standard plus a magnitude of finishing options allows a level of performance and customisation that fits each individual customer requirements. The enhanced HMI capabilities make the FL3 the best label printer system which is highly efficient, whilst enhancing the operator experience and reporting capabilities.

Autonomous inking impression and registration (AiiR) settings can be stored into the HMI making job recall and repeatability simple for the operator resulting in less waste, less set-up time and lower rejects. The FL3 is designed for easy operator use and combined with Edale “Uniprint” unique print head geometry allows ultimate print quality to be easily achieved.

The FL3 has the most extensive standard substrate range of any press on the market, 12-450 microns, allowing the printer to handle many different substrates including, film, labels, shrink sleeves, lamitubes, foil and light cartons to name but a few without any additions or alterations to the press.

Designed to be future proof, the fully modular build can easily be upgraded with either more embellishment tools or extra printing stations, either analogue or digital.

The in-house mechanical, electrical and software capabilities allows for ultimate reliability whilst maintain the customisation philosophy to give you the perfect press for your business both now and in the future.
