OMET Americas Opens New Innovation Center in the USA

Technology & Innovation

OMET Americas is proud to announce the grand opening of its latest Innovation Center in Mount Prospect, IL, strategically positioned near Chicago O’Hare International Airport. This move underscores our commitment to expanding our presence in the North American market.

At the heart of this facility is the revolutionary OMET KFlex 17” flexo press, a cutting-edge printing platform designed to redefine industry standards. With its innovative design and advanced technology, the KFlex offers unparalleled flexibility and operator convenience. Available in both 17” and 20” models, it represents a breakthrough in in-line printing and converting for labels and flexible packaging.

The KFlex’s standout feature is its SWITCH system, enabling easy configuration adjustments to meet various production demands. Coupled with its superior performance and exceptional print quality, this press ensures maximum productivity and versatility for printers.

In response to the growing demand for RFID labels, the press integrates an in-line RFID antennas insertion system from Tamarack, a leading provider of RFID equipment solutions. Additionally, to promote environmental sustainability, the press is equipped with a full LED UV system, reducing power consumption by over 60%.

Francesco Ponziani, GM and Vice President of OMET Americas, expresses his excitement, stating, “We are thrilled to introduce the KFlex press at our new Innovation Center in Mount Prospect, IL. This press joins over 200 other OMET machines already installed throughout North America, solidifying our commitment to innovation and to our US and Canadian clients. With the KFlex on site, we can offer hands-on experience and demonstrations, showcasing the future of flexographic printing.”
