September, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta, Canada –iSys Label, Canadian developer and manufacturer of short to mid run digital label printers, has announced a strong showing at the recent Labelexpo Americas. The tradeshow was held September 9-11th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL., and had an attendance upwards of 16,029 visitors during the three day event. With iSys Label distributors and resellers joining from Canada, United States, Mexico, Australia and the Latin Americas and in the booth, there was a substantial amount of sales done directly at the show, and many to come in the forthcoming weeks.
With the recent announcement of “section 3” certification for printing BS5609-compliant drum and chemical labels on the EDGE 850, iSys garnered a large amount of interest from print houses and companies needing to comply with the upcoming January 2015 deadline. The full color die-cut labels being printed were done using polyester stock from MACtac, and deliver outstanding stability and resistance to water, chemicals, fading and smudges when exposed to the harshest of elements. In addition to the EDGE 850 printing GHS labels, the same machine was shown printing on continuous stock from UPM Raflatac in preparation for cutting, stripping and matrix removal on finishing equipment for users needing more versatility and flexibility in their print shops.
Lastly, iSys Label displayed their flagship product, the APEX 1290 – a standalone digital label press for short to mid run production. During the exhibition, iSys demonstrated the printing of full bleed die-cut wine labels from Avery Dennison. With media print widths ranging from 3” to 12.9” wide, users were shown how they can print, slit and rewind production-worthy labels with ease.
Randy Rickert, Director of iSys Label remarks, “With every year that passes, iSys Label sees a substantial increase in the amount of patrons who are interested in the digital label printing market space. People looking for this technology seem to be more knowledgeable than in the past and are actively seeking digital label technology to fill their needs, whether it be in a print production facility or as brand owners looking to print their own labels. At Labelexpo Americas, iSys had distributors from all over the world and were very successful throughout the show with many installs happening immediately in the next couple weeks, as well as near future. The Labelexpo shows are something we look forward to all year long and we are excited to be attending the upcoming show in Brussels next fall.”ws for color management, ICC profiling and Pantone spot colors
