Just over a month ago, we attended the mighty Labelexpo Europe 2019 in Belgium. The Labelexpo shows are some of the biggest in the world, and this was no exception. It was a large and very busy event, with a constant flow of traffic to our exhibition booth, and, as always, we were hugely impressed by the organisation of the event. Despite the halls being busy and well attended, the layout was open and accessible – preventing it from feeling cramped. We want to extend a huge thank you to the Labels & Packaging team and all those involved in organising this year’s event.
UK Label printer, Labfax, based in Telford, has recently installed two of the latest FS Series Inspection Slitter Rewinders from Focus Label Machinery – as part of an ongoing modernisation programme across their range of label production equipment.
Investment in digital label printing machines is a core priority for many companies. When making the shift, training can be an invaluable resource. Printing technology companies such as Focus offer demonstrations on how to get the most out of a printing machine. Is it worth it? Here’s the evidence.
The worldwide switch to digital is in full flow. Even flexographic printing machines – the stalwart and reliable
workhorses of the packaging industry – have been given a 21st Century makeover in the latest generation of hybrid presses. However, when moving forwards, it helps to have the information to make good investment choices. Today, we answer four of the most frequently asked questions about balancing quality and cost in digital upgrades.
Focus Label Machinery were once again silver sponsors at the FlexoTech International Print & Innovations Awards. The 2019 awards, held at The Royal Lancaster, London, were hosted by Sally Phillips.
UK Label Printer, ‘The Label Centre’, based in Dudley, West Midlands, has become the latest company to install the Dflex digital hybrid press from Focus Label Machinery Ltd.
Established in 1999, the family owned business has continually invested, to grow the business, but this - their biggest investment to date - coincides with their 20th year in the industry.

Benefiting from the latest Inkjet Single Pass Print technology, the Focus d-Flex Machine can deliver professional label printing results, with low operating and maintenance costs, all via a user-friendly interface.
Packaging presents unique quirks to the world of graphic design. The constant need to innovate – whilst also avoiding major fails – is part and parcel of the quicksand of both pre-press and retro-graphics. Today’s software can offer a range of benefits that can ensure quality whilst guarding against problems. Here are some of the benefits that our partner Packz is able to add to your Focus press.
