Dutch company O&PM Europa has been nominated for a prestigious award.
Its unique invention, the LabelSaver™, is nominated in the 2020 Packaging Awards in the category for Innovative Technology. The ceremony, which has been delayed due to COVID-19, will take place in February 2021.
The LabelSaver™ integrates O&PM Europa’s own robotics with the Memjet-powered TrojanLabel print engine and proprietary coatings to create a self-moving printer for label-less production.
It can be used to print high quality colour directly onto objects including metal paint cans, plastic containers, and bottles. As an example, LabelSaver™ can print at a rate of 500 jerry cans per hour in full colour, 360 degrees. The system is also capable of printing on Memjet-receptive coatings for flexible packaging and films.
LabelSaver™ was developed in response to the proliferation of SKUs and increased demand for short-run labels, which has driven small manufacturers to look for more economical ways to label their products.
O&PM Europa is also working on a table top coater for applying water-based primers on self-adhesive materials. This system will make life very easy for converters to prepare their own inkjet receptive substrates, saving them significant amounts of money and increasing efficiency.
O&PM Europa has also developed primers especially for this system. As one of the few in Europe, primers have become one of their leading innovations for water-based inkjet technology. Primers can be formulated for any type of substrate.
