On Thursday, 24 June 2021, Iwasaki and Vinsak launched the TR3 to markets in this part of the world. The webinar, hosted on zoom, saw a participant list of about 100 and lasted for an hour, where the TR3 and IF 330 were discussed in detail. Five panelists moderated the entire event, and a flurry of questions from print and label enthusiasts indicated the event’s success.
The webinar presented the new Iwasaki solutions of Intermittent offset TR3 and the IF 330 for producing short-run labels competitively. While the technical presentation was clear and concise about the products on offer, the panel discussion posts had some very interesting interactions with converters discussing real use cases for the equipment and discussing the pros and cons of this technology vs. the digital label printing technology.
Iwasaki offers a complete solution for printing and converting
The TR 3 comes with new and improved automation features, a bigger print area, and a smaller footprint, enabling efficient production of short-run labels. The IF 330 offers converters who already have Flexo presses to use their existing pre-press, smaller plates, smaller dies, and no tooling to produce their short-run labels efficiently.
A key feature of the discussion was to appreciate the fact that Iwasaki offers a complete solution for printing as well as converting of the labels and to compare it with a digital solution, the technical and commercial offering of the entire solution must be used in the comparison Matrix and not just the digital printing part.
Existing Iwasaki users from India, The Middle East, and Europe were excited about the launch of the equipment being highly reliable and a very low maintenance cost.
