OMET X6.0 improves perfection

Technology & Innovation

Enhanced automation and technology 4.0 to reach a fully automatic independent process and meet any customers’ need. The OMET X6.0 launched at Labelexpo 2017 raises the bar of technology and innovation set by the OMET X6, the most valuable and appreciated narrow-web printing press for labels and packaging in the international market.

The latest innovations introduced by this new line are meant to increase the efficiency and productivity of the whole process, by simplifying the operator’s job through user-friendly approach and special units.

The OMET X6.0 integrates two new main innovative features: first, renewed flexo groups with automatic pressure adjustment and Cruise Control, providing the possibility to automatically adapt the printing pressures at each change of repeat, material or production speed. Second, the Multivision system for faster printing register adjustment and control thanks to a set of smart micro-cameras, one on each printing unit, that enable the independent tuning of the register in real time, drastically reducing machine downtime and set-up waste.

Exclusive special modules made by OMET can make even more difference in terms of efficiency and productivity: the TWIST die-cutting station, with “Easy-Change Die” system, a smart unit with double sliding cassette, which enables the preparation and of the die-cutting job off-line during production and effortless changeover operations in less than 1 minute. The Double Unwinder, a semi-automatic system that helps save time in the reel changeover operation, increasing the profitability of the press no matter the length of the run.

Thanks to the Transparent Factory system, all OMET machines are prepared for the constant monitoring of the working conditions and parameters. However, the OMET X6.0 can also count on new devices driven by the concept of Industry 4.0. A concrete example is the use of the Smart Glasses: through the augmented reality, they can improve the overall performance of the operator with real benefits in terms of cost reduction, maintenance and productivity. The use of the Smart Glasses is mainly valuable in customer service support, since they allow for faster and more effective assistance operations.

The outstanding performance in terms of flexibility, output quality and final applications, as well as the possibility to personalize the machine configuration, managed to impress those who had the chance to see it with their own eyes during the Labelexpo. The high number of requests for personal demonstrations proves the huge success of the OMET X6.0.
