Very low ($4) offset plate costs, 5-minute plate making, low waste, and short make-ready make the Codimag Viva 340 with it's ANIFLO "keyless"anilox offset system the ideal solution for short (less than 1,000 feet) to medium run label production.


The ANIFLO is a very innovative offset printing unit on which ink is delivered by an anilox in order to get a constant and regular ink volume. The ANIFLO is the right mix of flexo and offset technologies to eliminate variables (such as ink key control for example) and stabilize the print process, reducing waste and make-ready time.


With offset quality and anilox stability, the ANIFLO allows process stabilization and control, color management becomes a much easier job.


Stop by Codimag's booth (#3429) to see 4 job changeovers running live including printing 116 PMS colors using seven color (CMYKOGB) expanded gamut!

Laser Die Cutting of labels

SEI Labelmaster laser finishing system
processes roll materials for the packaging and labeling industry.
SEI's Label Master is a highly professional combination system for digital finishing. The SEI
Label Master can be configured as a standalone station for laser die cutting or it can be completed with numerous finsihing options.

* Materials able to process include: Paper, PE, PET, PP, TNT etc.

SEI Laser has 30 years of experience building electronic & laser systems. SEI Laser builds fully integrated systems combining C02 lasers from the leading supplier with their in-house ability to provide custom mechanical, software, optics & scanning heads to provide solutions with industry leading performance. Rather than buying all components from suppliers to assemble a label die cutting/finishing system as many competitors do, SEI uses their expertise to deliver a highly flexible and efficient label production system. The SEI Labelmaster is unique in that it utilizes two independent lasers. This offers several advantages, there is no seam since each laser is independent they are NOT sticthed together, this provides faster production speeds and if one laser should have a problem the other laser can continue die cutting without stopping production (in effect providing built in redundancy).

The SEI Labelmaster offers industry leading performance (up to 60m/min),flexibility & quality. See the Labelmaster in production at the Laser Die cutting workshop at Labelexpo running 4 different jobs or stop by SEI's booth #6551.
