Last month we held a press naming ceremony to officially welcome the OMET XFlex X4 label press, Raphael, into the insignia family. Raphael is the latest addition to our national fleet of label presses, and has been installed in our Brisbane manufacturing facility.
Raphael received its name as part of a long-running tradition at insignia. Each label press in our national fleet is named after a renowned artist, as we believe custom labels are a piece of art bringing our customers' brands to life. Raphael joins notable artists in our production facilities, including Da Vinci, Matisse, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, and others.
Raphael is equipped with pre-register and auto-register technology, which enables us to deliver the highest print quality. Specifically, the pre-register device is designed to reduce the machine set-up time, resulting in a shorter turnaround time to complete label jobs and a reduction in material waste. Increased precision and label quality are delivered through the auto-register device, which automatically positions the label image and maintains this position throughout the entire press run providing high-speed accuracy.
Raphael enhances our label capabilities for a broad range of market applications including self-adhesive labels, flexible packaging and niche market unsupported filmic tags. A range of premium-labelling embellishments are also available, including cold foiling (designed to deliver high quality and cost-effective metallic printing effects), two side printing, UV Flexo and UV lamination.
insignia continues to experience strong growth, and recently, insignia's Brisbane and Melbourne manufacturing facilities achieved record production output converting raw material into custom labels. Our significant investment in the new press reinforces our commitment of supporting our business growth and is recognition of our ongoing commitment. By investing in industry-leading technology, we extend our technical capabilities, which continues to support Australian businesses in building their market competitiveness. This investment also extends to our people - our experienced team members are passionate about sharing their knowledge and skills, and providing a first-rate customer service experience.
"Raphael adds to our already strong product portfolio and capability platform and continues to reinforce our commitment to the market. With this investment, which enhances our current print capabilities, we continue to grow and continue to be a major supplier within the Australian market", affirms Jeff Bint, insignia's Executive General Manager.
