There’s no better way to keep abreast of the latest product innovations and technologies in the label industry than to see them for yourself. Recently, several of us from Bollin Label Systems were able to do just that during the 2012 Labelexpo in Chicago.

      Labelexpo is the world’s largest event for the label and product decoration industry. It’s held in the U.S.every two years and we always look forward to it. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn more about advances in our industry and how we can incorporate them in our business to better serve our customers. We see everything from the latest technologies in digital printing to new paper combinations. Then we ask ourselves, “How can we capitalize on these new innovations and opportunities?”

      This year was no exception. We purchased on site an amazing new rewinder manufactured in England. This rewinder makes thousands of adjustments per second so that each label roll is consistent from beginning to end. This advantage is passed onto our customers. The greater consistency in our label rolls makes it easier for them in their application processes.

      We’re continually investing in ways to improve our manufacturing capabilities and product quality, especially when we can bring those improvements to our customers.

A new way of looking at things: Bollin Label Systems associates from the Print and Production Department learn how to use the technically advanced SpectroEye, a spectrophotometer used to measure and control color specifications with greater accuracy.

At Bollin Label Systems, we continually look for ways to enhance print and production processes and to further our capabilities in manufacturing high-quality labels for our customers. Investing in a new, state-of-the-art spectrophotometer is the latest example of this.

The SpectroEye allows color and other properties to be quantified for greater accuracy and repeatability. We can deliver more precise color reproduction with virtually no discernable variation from run to run. The color we print today will be nearly identical to the color we reproduce year after year.

We understand the importance of our customers’ brands; printing invariably affects a brand’s image. We take our role in portraying our customers’ brands very seriously, which is why we’re using the SpectroEye.
