Your semi-rotary Miyakoshi MLP is becoming, step by step, a whole a benchmark in the self-adhesive label printing market europeanItaly, Portugal, France, Spain ...). A clear, and very relevant example, is the 2 Miyakoshi MLP installation (one of 5 colors and one of 4 colors) in OGA typeface (Officine Grafiche Artigiane); company located in Regello, an Italian town in the province of Florence, Tuscany region.
OGA It was founded in 1961 as a traditional printing company and for more than two decades it has been present in the field of roll and sheet labels. In 2002, adapting to the changing demands of the world market, and drawing on its experience in the field of printing, OGA specialized in the label market
“The company takes advantage of the experience and competence acquired over the years and turns them into the strength of its own production. Currently, OGA has its own sales network, attentive to customer demands, always present when and where it is needed, and capable of adapting to the most demanding production and delivery deadlines. Whether it is among the best Chianti or Veneto wines, we are always by the side of the wine companies, ready to act ” explains Sabatino Bonchi, Manager of OGA.
Miyakoshi MLP is a UV offset semi-rotary designed for high quality label printing in short and medium runs and it is available in both UV offset and UV waterless (MWL).
“In Italy, the label sector has been able, for the most part, to adapt to the new situation, a consequence of the economic crisis experienced in recent years and the new demands of its customers. Our wine industry continues in a growing trend thanks to the high quality of our wines. Precisely for this reason, there is a need and obligation to present your product with labels with more added value and sophistication with the ultimate goal of providing greater differentiation to your final product " says Sabatino Bonchi.
“The key to the success of the label is to guarantee the impact and visibility of the wine in different environments. That is why, on the one hand, more resources have been allocated to dressing the container with more striking and higher quality labels " Sabatino remarks.
The label industry is experiencing a sustained growth, with the recovery of domestic consumption and the boost in exports as the main causes, which can be summarized as more orders but less quantity for each order. Increasingly, the client diversifies and personalizes the batches, thus demanding smaller volumes of labels, with a competitive price and a delivery in record time.
«The label printing market is demanding a efficient short run production, and the Miyakoshi semi-rotary produces, for many of our customers, high-quality short runs from as little as 350-400 meters at speeds of up to 60 m / min. It is common for multiple jobs to be spread across the entire width of the machine. Many Miyakoshi printers are using our semi-rotary in much the same way as a digital printing machine. The set-up is short, and the ink opening zones are preset starting directly from the PDF material. The costs of offset plates are practically negligible. All finishing processes (simple varnishing, die cutting, laminating and hot stamping) for the Miyakoshi machine are completed offline » Yuichi Ikeda, General Director of Miyakoshi Europe, details us.
“Demand in Europe doubled between 1996 and 2013, reaching over 6,000 M m2, and with forecasts of another 5% growth in 2014, according to Finat data. In fact, the Global demand for labels will increase by 4.9% annuallyl, reaching 57,700 M m2 in 2018, with a market value of 114,000 M$. These are figures from different sources and studies that talk about the health and future of the label market both at national, European and global level " Enrique R. García affirms; Commercial Director of Miyakoshi Europe.
“After analyzing the printing press market, OGA opted for Miyakoshi because adapts perfectly to our needs from quality, precision and maximum demand. The Miyakoshi MPL meets our technical demands for both industrial and high-quality labels, requirements that must be met by wine labels. Its elevated production speed, repeat length and high print quality are its highlights. If I have to describe with just one word Miyakoshi, would say quality; because it perfectly combines and summarizes both the mechanical and performance characteristics of the machine " Sabatino Bonchi points out; Typography Manager OGA.
"In view of the current market situation, at OGA we rely on offset technology. The needs of the wine market can be perfectly met with offset technology, even in short runs, as we already do. The offset process allows us to print short runs of high quality " Sabatino concludes.
