VIAPPIANI – your partner for in-mould labelling.

VIAPPIANI employs sheet-fed offset, flexographic and the latest digital printing.

VIAPPIANI can point to over 35 years of in-mould label (IML) expertise. It is therefore capable of offering a variety of labels and IML solutions for all types of applications.

 

Printing capabilities

VIAPPIANI has a modern machinery park consisting of:

  • A Heidelberg XL 105, 6-colour offset press with in-line cut star
  • A Heidelberg XL 105, 8-colour offset press with in-line cut star
  • A Heidelberg XL 106, 7-colour offset press with in-line cut star
  • An Omet 520 Flexo, 8-colour printing machine with cold-foil application and retro-verso print
  • A Xeikon digital press

The installation of the latest digital printing technology means that VIAPPIANI is now also in a position to offer high-quality in-mould labels for cost-efficient trials or smaller order sizes with shorter lead times.

In addition, the new technologies provide personalisation and the unique coding of every single (IML) label, which in turn furnishes extended possibilities for both marketing and anti-counterfeiting measures.

Over the years, VIAPPIANI has accumulated extensive know-how with regard to printing on various IML substrates that also takes into account differing printing ink systems.

Pre-press process

In addition, the company’s graphic designers and printers offer support during the label design process and profiled GMG proofs ensure that the final result is visible prior to production. Such certified proofs are contractually valid worldwide.

Last, but not least, VIAPPIANI provides complete production process traceability, which extends to shipment.
