Digitally Cut & Laminate
Create Labels of Any Shape & Size Without the Need For Dies
Vivid Data Group carries several Digital Label Finishers (DLF) that complement the most popular digital color label printers and presses on the market. Digital label finishing systems typically “finish” label rolls by unwinding them, adding a lamination film layer, digitally cutting the labels, removing the waste matrix, and slitting the large label roll into smaller individual rolls (if multiple designs are printed across the width of the roll), and rewinding the finished labels. All of this takes place in one operation. Once complete, labels are ready to be applied to the product using either a label dispenser or a label applicator.
Vivid Data Group has a wide variety of digital label finishers from leading manufacturers, such as Afinia and Eclipse, that are available in several price ranges.
Afinia digital label finishers offer a variety of quality finishing equipment including label slitters, matrix removers, slitting systems, and digital label finishing using cutting plotter and laser technologies. Afinia’s digital label finishers are systems that unwind, laminate, digitally contour cut, remove waste, slit, and rewind in one simple process to create professionally finished labels. These solutions are perfect for finishing on-demand, short-run label jobs printed on a digital color label printer.
Eclipse is committed to producing high-quality digital finishing and labeling equipment. Their digital label finishers have impressive production rates, cutting speeds up to 15 feet per minute. Their digital label finishers are capable of converting various substrates, including papers both coated and uncoated, as well as films like Biaxially Oriented Polypropylene (BOPP), polyester, and vinyl. Manufacturers who have invested in Eclipse equipment are capitalizing on new opportunities as they arise and growing their sales.
Print shops are also using digital label finishers to offload short runs from larger, more expensive equipment or to add the capability to produce labels in-house—allowing for faster turnaround, better quality control, and more profitability on lower-volume label runs. Cut paths can be varied as often as desired, giving users the flexibility to create any label shape, on the fly. Rectangles, circles, ovals, or any custom shape that is desirable for your packaging, can be created and cut. This allows you to cut different types of material and shapes on the fly without the added cost of dies.
