Bar Graphic Machinery (‘BGM’), in association with its distributor for the Americas region J&J Converting Machinery LLC (‘J&J’), has confirmed it will be showcasing its latest range of finishing technologies at Labelexpo Americas 2022.

A market leader in the design and manufacture of label finishing systems, die cutting slitter rewinders and digital label converting finishing systems for the global label industry, BGM and J&J will be located in Hall A on Stand 1629 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Centre, Chicago, 13-15th September 2022.

Annemarie Rhodes, Managing Director at BGM, said: “Despite the challenges of the current pandemic, we are keen to get out and about and meet our customers and partners, old and new, from around the world. Labelexpo is always a great opportunity to understand what’s happening in the market, identify the key trends and challenges the label industry is facing, and network with the industry.

“Of course, partnering with J&J this year – a leader in the provision of new and used equipment and services for the North and South American label market - enables us to showcase our exemplary range backed by the excellent services J&J provide.

“This year, we will be demonstrating our latest range of BGM Elite machines including our BGM Elite iSR Label Inspection Slitter Rewinder; probably the most cost effective, compact, robust and free-standing label inspection slitter rewinder available on the market today. We will be showing its impressive speed, at up to 300m/min, and with our customers focusing on sustainability today, visitors can observe its energy efficiency performance being only run on a simple 13-amp single phase supply.”

At the show, there will also be the BGM Elite eDSR Easy Load Die Cut Slitter Rewinder. This is the company’s fastest, most cost effective, compact, robust and free-standing label die cutting solution. It offers rotary die cutting capability up to 250m/min and can also be used as a conventional slitter rewinder for complete operational flexibility.

Finally, the BGM Elite Comflex compact digital finishing system will be available; a full offline entry level digital converting solution, that despite being targeted at new entrants is designed and built to the exacting standards of quality that customers have come to expect from BGM. This compact and robust machine achieves semi-rotary die cutting at speeds of up to 90m/min, nearly 40% faster than comparable machines on the market.

“Labelexpo is an exciting moment in the label industry calendar for our companies. We’re delighted to have the opportunity to show what we can do for the label industry in the Americas working together with J&J,” Annemarie concluded.
