Label and Print Technologies has just replaced its reliable 7-inch 5-color MA flexo printer with a refurbished 10" Mark Andy 2200 flexo printer to accompany the company's flagship 10" Mark Andy Scout flexo printer.

This printing asset features six UV color print stations, which provide even more brilliant and ink fast colors to the labels printed!

The benefit it brings to the company lies not only in its excellent print quality history from the Mark Andy (MA) fold but also the following advantages:

Increased Production Capacity:
With these two printers, LPT can handle a higher volume of printing jobs simultaneously or in parallel, reducing lead times and meeting tighter deadlines.

Redundancy and Backup:
If one printer experiences downtime due to maintenance, repairs, or other issues, the second printer can continue production, ensuring minimal disruption to workflow and fulfilling customer orders without delays.

Flexibility and Versatility:
Two printers provide greater flexibility in scheduling jobs, allowing LPT to prioritize urgent orders or accommodate fluctuating demands without overburdening a single machine.

Risk Mitigation:
By spreading production across two machines, LPT reduces the risk of a single point of failure affecting the entire printing operation. This helps mitigate the impact of unexpected breakdowns or technical issues.

Efficiency and Optimization:
LPT can optimize production by allocating specific jobs to each printer based on factors such as job size, substrate type, or printing requirements. This can lead to improved overall efficiency and resource utilization.

Diversification of Services:
Having two printers enables LPT to offer additional services or capabilities to customers, such as specialty printing techniques, faster turnaround times, or increased capacity for large-scale projects.

Summary:
With the above positive features in mind, we look forward to further improving our focus on providing you with quality label solutions that will match or exceed your expectations.

Label and Print Technologies are running a R500 special for customers that purchase a printer.

For every printer ordered from our quality range on offer, a R500 credit will be applied to the consumables ordered for the printer. Click here for printer range.

For example: If an Argox OS214 plus is ordered @ R3 939.00 exc, R500 will be credited against the final value of consumables (labels and/or ribbons) ordered with the printer.

In other words, you could be paying Zero! Nothing! Nada! Niks! for the labels and ribbons that you order with the printer.

Label and Print are excited to work with social media company “Lets be Frank”, and manufacture labels for their client - House of Snacks.

The product is a maize snack which comes in 1, 2 and 3 kg sizes with 6 different flavors.

Each of the six flavors were flexo printed utilizing five colors plus a covering UV ink for protection. The size of the label was 160mm x 280mm. Click here to see the flexo process.

A white rectangle block was kept open for variable information with weight, barcode, date of manufacture and expiry date to be inserted.

The variable information was overprinted (in black) using an Argox 6 inch wide thermal transfer printer. Click here to see the overprinting process.

Congratulations to all involved at Label and Print Technologies on this wonderful accolade.

With the new label legislation coming into effect in 2023, Deli Spices are one of the first companies in phasing out old labels with new conforming labels. No longer may a product display a label - that shows additional features - which are not part of the product on offer.

As a result more colourful designs will grace the package of hamburgers, boerewors and chicken products as we get closer to Christmas 2023.
