Malmesbury Labels installs Series 4 CS1 after impressive trial

Improved colours and increased productivity with Tecscan system, says MD

Cirencester-based flexo printers Malmesbury Labels have installed a Series 4 CS1 video web inspection system on their Mark Andy press. The company is a self-adhesive label specialist using flexo and digital presses, producing labels for a variety of markets including food and beverages.

The label printing firm had not previously used a Tecscan system, but approached the company with requirements for viewing a 7” web width. After discussion with Tecscan’s sales department and engineers, it was decided that a Series 4 CS1 would be the most cost-effective solution.

“We approached Tecscan for advice on a web inspection unit for our flexo press,” said managing director Howard Burr. “I was extremely happy with the way our enquiry was handled and that customer service understood our requirement.”

“Tecscan offers demonstrations and trial periods to allow customers to see how an inspection system can improve their production process”

The CS1 is a low-cost video web inspection system, drawing on Tecscan’s 30 year history of designing and developing durable, high performance inspection systems to deliver true colour and clear, crisp images. Tecscan offers demonstrations and trial periods to allow customers to see how an inspection system can improve their production process, and this factored heavily into Malmesbury Labels’ decision to purchase.

“The system was specified and trialled before we committed to purchase, something we required as this was a new addition, not a replacement,” Mr Burr continued, adding that “since fitting, we have seen increased productivity, better colour reproduction due to faster web speeds and improved quality.”

In addition to meeting the label producer’s inspection needs, the MD cited efficient and understanding service from Tecscan as a factor in their satisfaction. Mr Burr commented that Malmesbury Labels are “extremely happy with the CS1 web inspection device.”

The CS1 is part of Tecscan’s basic web inspection range and is a highly effective low-cost option for many flexo printers. To enquire, contact the sales team on (+44) (0)1443 821 552 or, or read more at
