Verico Technology at Labelexpo

With the launch of the Zahara NWL, Verico Technology built on 30 years of experience in waterless offset to combine all of its advantages with sustainability. In almost no time, Zahara plates have transformed the viability of narrow web label printing for the better by making its prepress genuinely digital.

Many customers have already replaced their processors with Verico’s new cost effective and compact washers, the company states. Expensive chemicals and dyes are no longer required for Zahara plates. All that the washers use is pure water, and even this is re-circulated so that the consumption of tens of thousands of litres of water is a thing of the past for Zahara users.

The Zahara NWL was specifically developed to deliver print quality and precision for label printing. It is totally chemistry-free and generates a latent image without the need for dyes. Stability over long runs, even when using abrasive substrates, deep colour densities, high contrast in UV printing and process stability are just some of the advantages of this trendsetter from Verico Technology. On top of this, the waterless professionals can draw on their years of experience to offer users advice and service that is known for its reliability.

Live print demonstrations of Verico Technology Zahara NWL plates on Codimag presses can be watched in Hall 11 on Stand C10. This combination of press and plate technology represents one of the most efficient developments in the age of waterless offset.

The VIVA 340 evolution is the industrial alternative to industrial printing and offers greater flexibility and profitability for short run solutions in combination with Aniflo keyless ink train technology and waterless offset printing. The VIVA 420 Aniflo is one of the most productive presses on the market and, being modular, can accommodate the full range of inline finishing processes to enhance productivity and generate greater value.

The equipment for the digital workflow associated with the Codimag VIVA press is also on show at Label-Expo, and consists of a fully automatic HD ProW Thermal CtP-System, as well as the compact EcoKleen Washer. The CtP system delivers finished plates at the press of a button whilst the washer reduces water consumption to zero thanks to an innovative filtration system.
