QUADRA™ establishes a new standard in the market by transferring all the technology to a convenient dedicated configuration for the hight quality 1 to 4 colours labels, keeping the same performances of the top of the range Combat line.
GIDUE broadens its range of Combat narrow web presses introducing the Quadra™ series, a press specifically dedicated to the label market. In order to maximize the benefit from the investment GIDUE launches a 4 colours + 1 die-cut fixed configuration press, available in the widths of 280 mm, 370 mm and 430 mm which keeps all the performances of the traditional Combat series (the Flower concept, 150 mts. Min. production etc.). The press is not retrofittable with any additional colour or converting application.
The Quadra™ is available in 3 configurations, 4 UV, or 4 Hot air/IR, or 4 Hot air/IR + 1 UV.
The objectives of the QUADRA™ line are 6
More and more existing Combat customers are specializing into the added value market of 6/7/8 colours printing, and feel the need of an economic solution to their existing solid and text jobs, without compromising in quality. The QUADRA™ perfectly fits to these needs with an aggessive pricing, and keeping the same productivuty and quality features of the elder sister.
Many developing countries are looking for economic entry-level solutions for the label market. The competitive pricing and the ease of operation of the ease of operation of the QUADRA™ will help a lot of new-comers to enter the label market with shorter learning curves, easier training for the operators, reduced level of investment.
A lot of existing letterpress printers are looking for a solution to enter the flexo market without a major investment in technology and in capital. As the QUADRA™ keeps all the benefits of the Flower™ concept (no ink in the hands of the operator. organized working environment, no adjustments in printing, possibility of using totally unskilled operators), the learning process to enter the flexo world is reduced and made easier, with a limited investment.
In case of very competitive price pressure, the productivity of the QUADRA™ can help the program towards specialized production lines in the medium-big size printing companies. A 1 to 4 clours high productivity press takes away a lot of work from more capital consuming multicolour presses, making production more rational in terms of capital and human resources use.
When customers are facing space problems, the QUADRA™ can be very helpful too, due to its compact configuration (330x150 cm. everything included). The press can be positioned very close to other presses, and increase of productivity can be obtained without major floor space consumption.
Last but not least objective is the zero tolerance to errors (Six Sigma). Due to the reduced number of variables, the QUADRA™ is the first focus of the newly lauched GIDUE quality program which forecasts zero error in all the operations by the end of year 2004. QUADRA™ is the less service demanding press in the market all the parts are over dimensioned for practically unlimited use without performance decay during the years. No maintenance, unlimited warranty for 2 years, the QUADRA™ is fully installed in less than 4 hous, and is designed to have 95% effective run time for all its working life.
