OMET leaves its mark at Labelexpo Americas 2018
Excellent results for OMET at Labelexpo Americas 2018, held in Chicago from 25th to 27th September. The fair has registered the absolute record of visitors compared to past editions, different machines sold and the first hybrid press (flexo + digital) to be installed in the United States.
The new OMET XJet powered by Durst, the hybrid printing machine unveiled last February that integrates in-line the Durst Tau RSC digital inkjet group with the OMET X6’s flexo printing, finishing and converting units, appeared for the first time in the Americas and obtained a great appreciation.
OMET and Durst Group announced also their collaboration for the distribution of Durst products by OMET Americas in the continent, during a crowded press conference held by Marco Calcagni, OMET Sales director and Helmuth Munter, Segment Manager Labels & Package Printing at Durst.
Live demonstrations of OMET XJet and OMET iFlex attracted thousands of visitors that could appreciate the exceptional performances and the high potential of the whole OMET’s technology.
Great success was registered also by the “Join the network Gala” organized by OMET Americas and the Future of Flexo initiative at the Rosemont Theatre on the second day of the fair. The event saw the participation of over 400 people that had the amazing opportunity to test drive a Ferrari, another example of the excellence of Italian technology.
During the Gala evening Antonio Bartesaghi, OMET Managing Director, received the Lifetime Achievement Award in memory of his father Angelo Bartesaghi, founder of OMET. “Angelo Bartesaghi, founder and soul of OMET Group, in 1963 gave life to the company that today has become an international excellence in the field of technology. Entrepreneur, husband, father and great leader, he was the point of reference for the whole Group. The current managerial organization is still founded on his everlasting values: determination, loyalty, progress and deep sense of belonging”.
