Badger Tag & Label Adds New Capabilities
With the installation of a new six-color UV digital press and plotter cutter, Random Lake, Wisconsin-based Badger Tag & Label Corporation now offers new options for low and medium volume projects. The company already has produced safety decals, face plates, control panels, signs, backlit panels, floor and carpet graphics, window clings, wall displays and short runs of tags and labels.
The press can print up to 60-inch widths and any length when the material is on a roll. With the option to print on materials up to 1.75" thick, and the versatility of the print area, Badger can use a virtually unlimited array of substrates. Some of the most common have been coated papers, styrene, vinyl, adhesives, coated aluminum, static cling, wood, canvas and other synthetic materials. Using six UV colors, the press creates photo quality images that have a three- to five-year outdoor life and are abrasion-resistant.
When paired with the press, the new plotter cutter opens up an even greater array of projects Badger can produce. There are no tooling changes associated with a project which can result in great savings. And, the intricacy and quantity of cuts are not limited. Both diecutting from the substrate and kiss cutting are possible.
"We've been creating letterpress and flexographic printed tags and labels for 74 years," said DJ Jacoby, vice president/general manager. "Increasingly, we've had inquiries for shorter run projects and when we saw the unbelievable capabilities of the combination of these two machines we knew they could expand our service to both current and new accounts."
