The HP Indigo WS6800 machine is the company’s first digital label printing press and will be used to produce GLBC's all in-house digital labels.

GLBC’s new Digicon Series 3 digital label converting machine will be provided by AB Graphic International.

This machine is the premier partner for HP's digital printing presses and is equipped with a new 50t hot foil and emboss unit, called ‘Big Foot’.

Once installed, the machine will enable GLBC to produce small short runs of simple labels and high-end multiple foiled labels for the wine and beverage markets and other industries.

The new label laminator, Stock LLM / HP, to be installed by GLBC, will allow the company to provide corrugated high-end boxes, trays, and displays.

While the machines are slated to arrive at the facility within the next three months, installation is due to be completed by autumn 2017.
