ABG’s Omega SRI3 evolution proves ideal for cosmetics and pharmaceutical label finishing


CATEGORY: Printing and labeling BRAND: AB Graphic International

The new, state-of-the-art Omega SRI3 from A B Graphic International (ABG), is setting the standard for complex cosmetics and pharmaceutical label finishing applications.

Delivering high-performance slitting, rewinding and inspection, the updated SRI3 offers a range of new and adjustable options to meet future requirements and is the only machine in its class that doesn't rely on a third-party inspection system. ABG’s integrated fleyeVision camera system provides 100% print inspection of pharmaceutical and luxury cosmetics labels that include intricate foiling, screen and metallic embellishment.


The upgraded features on the SRI3, include a lower splice table that allows operators greater flexibility and increased ergonomic comfort when working on detailed labels, thereby improving productivity and efficiency. And with a larger unwind diameter at 830mm, and increased nip roller wraparound, waste is reduced and tension control improved, preventing slippage and interweaving of the web, while providing unparalleled versatility.


Other enhancements include an arm that enables a right-handed operator to easily cut the reel, and a tape holder, which is built-in as per ABG’s Digicon range. Manual slitting can now be upgraded to autoslit, which was not possible on the previous SRI, and the rewind module can be taken out and replaced with a turret at a later stage.


Designed with retrofitting possibilities in mind and a modular setup to make future updates simple, the SRI3 can be fully configured to meet individual needs.



“At ABG, we strive to deliver premium service and the best experiences for our customers across the globe,” said Ralf Wirtz, managing director of ABG GMBH. “The new SRI3 provides manufacturers in both the pharmaceutical and cosmetics markets with unrivalled capabilities in the finishing and inspection of their elaborate and complex label designs. Our commitment to excellence is at the core of our evolutionary approach to the SRI’s unique design.”
