OMET is introducing this major change to the market so that printers using the new X4 will be able to obtain higher quality and superior production performance than any of their competitors. The new X4 has been designed and built with one aim: To make it easier for the operator to produce top quality work on all kinds of material. The new concept of the flexo printing unit as- sures a high quality level and better control of print register and its high level of automation allows significant waste reduction when com- bined with the shortest web path in its class on the market.
