Nuova Gidue S.r.l. has announced the sale of two flexographic printing presses to be installed in the U.S. in early 2014.
Diversified Label Images of Birmingham, AL, has purchased the Gidue M5 430 (17”) with eight color stations and diecutting. Traco Manufacturing, Inc. of Orem, UT, has purchased the Gidue M5 630 (25”) with nine color stations and diecutting. Both of these machines are multi-substrate capable and also feature the patented Gidue Flower print deck design. Both presses were ordered with Gidue’s latest Digital Flexo technology, which fully automates the printing and diecutting processes.
“This technology is new to North America and fits perfectly with our Lean Manufacturing culture here” said Mat Jones, president of Gidue USA, LLC. “It will take time, effort and education for the advantages of digital flexo to become well known here in the U.S., but the advantages are considerable and that is simply impossible to keep a secret” Jones went on to say.
“We enthusiastically welcome Diversified and Traco into the Gidue family,” said Maurizio Trecate, Gidue’s vice president of sales. “Gidue is committed to the U.S. We eagerly await the inevitable comparisons to our competition there, and we hope the whole of North America will be watching as we continue to lead the industry with customer focused innovation."
