The 5-station, full-color, CMYK press is equipped with a single-pass opaque white but can also support color gamut expansion, and custom or security colors. Markets served by the CX300 include: wine, spirits, craft beer, luxury food, health & beauty labels, etc.—and can also be used for the production of heat transfer labels, in-mould labeling, wet glue, wraparound labels and cartons.
