Innovation and Flexibility (English)

Set up by two brothers, Cesare and Emore Campioli, in 1952, Italian company OMSO SpA is a global leader in the manufacturing of first-class printing machines. Innovation and flexibility are absolutely central to its work. Barbara Rossi spoke to its CEO, Alfredo Campioli.

"Our specialism is equipment for printing decorations on containers such as tubes, bottles, cap closures, cups, lids and boxes. Our machines can print on different types of plastic, glass and metal. This has been our area of activity from our very beginning, although things have evolved a lot over the years both in terms of the types of plastic used and the technologies employed. Our core products, also offering the greatest growth potential, are machines for printing on tubes, bottles and cups; although lids and cap closures play a role as well, especially in terms of the beverage sector,” explained Mr Campioli.

UV LED technology from Phoseon offers consistent stability and a long life time which are both fundamental to low migration printing processes.

“The technologies used are dry offset, flexographic and screen printing. Flexographic printing has been added in the past few years and has a very significant field of application, owing to the fact that it achieves a printing quality comparable to that of photography. We have developed our servo platform exactly to be able to utilise flexographic printing on the items that our clients need to decorate, in other words tubes, bottles and cups. Recent company developments (Ultratube, Servobottle, Servocup) have been based on this technology.”

UV LED for low migration is a great new technology that is now available to customers. UV LED technology from Phoseon offers consistent stability and a long life time which are both fundamental to low migration printing processes. LED offers more than 20,000 hours of operation with only minimal power drop over time. Process stability plays a fundamental role in GMP (good manufacturing practice) and is very important to product manufacturers and brand owners as they can ensure their products are cured consistently and safely, run after run, without having to worry about bulb degradation.
