LABELMASTER

THE FASTEST LASER SYSTEM FOR DIE CUTTING AND FINISHING OF LABELS

SEI Laser laser machine Labelmaster, used instead of the traditional mechanical die cutter, allows a fully digital workflow from the beginning to the end: from the “PDF” file to delivery, guaranteeing a fluid workflow.

Labelmaster is therefore a technologically advanced laser system for converting roll materials in the packaging & labelling industry. It is the best modular solution for digital and traditional finishing. Labelmaster can be configured according to specific needs at the moment of purchase and later with optional upgrades that can be installed on site.

The laser technology also offers unique advantages previously impossible to have: today you can make different finishing processes for different applications thank to a single system in a single step such as laser cutting, laser die-cutting, mechanical semi-rotary die-cutting, flexography, selective flexography, semi-rotary hot stamping in gold, self-wound lamination, lamination with liner, Label Shifter, laser cutting, laser marking, laser micro-perforation, cutting of single sheets (sheeting), longitudinal roll cutting (slitting).

The interaction of laser technology with printing creates new opportunities in the labelling market: the innovative combination of the product decoration, identification and counterfeiting ensures the success of the layout.
