Abbey Labels Continue To Invest In New Machinery

Abbey Labels continue their investment in new machinery to boost quality and increase the range of products they offer

Abbey Labels, one of the leading label printing companies in Suffolk have continued their investment in new machinery, following the acquisition of the Xeikon CX3 digital printing press with the purchase of a label re-reeler which features an automatic camera checking system.


The SRI, provided by ABG International is the new generation of label converting and finishing equipment. Using the latest servo drive technology, combined with PC/SPS based control the machine offers the latest in label printing sophistication to allow the company to offer more products, boosting quality and decreasing turnaround time.

This latest investment includes a fully integrated FleyeVision camera inspection control system. The machine quality checks and counts each label individually; if the machine detects a faulty label it automatically slows and stops to present the affected label to the operator for either removal or replacement.

Barry Pettit, Managing Director of Abbey Labels said:

This is another investment by Abbey Labels to improve quality and increase the product range we can offer for our customers. With our new camera inspection system we can guarantee the quality and quantity of every label that goes through the machine.

Our product offering has increased with the introduction of the SRI as our new machine can handle and slit the thinnest of label materials. We envisage job completion time will be improved as well as we can now generate a report of each job for customers to review”.

The benefits of the new SRI machine include:

  • Convert & slit thin label materials
  • Camera quality & quantity check for every single label
  • Very high productivity labels with rewinding speed of up to 350 m/min
