)-- The RB Dwyer Group has recently installed an IVCO (Infinitely Variable Cylinder Web Offset) press, manufactured by RDP Marathon, in its East coast location in Wilkes Barre, PA. This press is a first of its kind for Dwyer and the only one in North America doing shrink sleeve labels. This state-of-the-art technology will expand Dwyer’s ability to meet the growing needs of its customers using shrink sleeve technology with shorter lead times and lower minimums at more competitive prices.
This new, innovative technology, provides the highest quality printing comparable to rotogravure with nominal tooling costs. It allows for quick changeovers for variable repeat lengths, which could not be done with traditional offset printing. Customers can be assured of an expanded gamut of colors and tonal gradations to 1% color density with the ability to control process printing. The customer receives greater flexibility in printing multiple sku’s and the option to change label graphics more frequently without the cost of rotogravure cylinders. In addition, the use of UV inks offers optimal print quality.
This revolutionary new technology will open new markets and improve capabilities in existing markets. Primary products include shrink sleeve labels, tamper-evident bands and performs.
The RB Dwyer Group, established in 1988, is headquartered in Ahaheim, CA with manufacturing facilities in Wilkes Barre, PA and distribution centers throughout the U.S.A and Canada. High quality printing and leading edge technology enables the RB Dwyer Group to produce shrink labels, tamper-evident bands, and preforms for beverage, food, personal care products, chemical industry and pharmaceutical industries.
