FLEXO Magazine : September 2010
The Diamond HP is an ideal answer for the converters who require increased flexibility and consolidation of equipment to streamline operations with high speeds. The Diamond HP represents Uteco’s Excellences in flexographic printing. We are aware that short runs, increase quality, reduction of waste and set-up times remain priorities in today’s flexible packaging market. Therefore, Uteco will be introducing the Diamond press at our open house in Atlanta Georgia on November 16-18 demonstrate all the features this press has to offer, including Speed, Quick Changeover and Reduction of Waste. Apex North America presents 2 unique technologies: 1. Genetic Transfer Technology (GTT) UniFlex® Technology revolutionizes the Anilox industry. No more LPI, BCM, order your engravings as a S(mall), M(edium) or L(arge), where typically 2 surfaces can replace an entire inventory of anilox and offer superior printability (stronger, less mottled, less pinholed solids, cleaner reverses and type, less dot gain), that are easier to keep clean, and less likely to score due to a harder, denser ceramic utilized. 2. UltraquickTM Anilox Sleeve technology features unparalleled durability, superior dimensional stability and tolerances, reworkability (tested to up to 20 reworks), all at 1⁄2 to 2/3 the weight of a conventional anilox sleeve: No foam or glue that can degrade over time, and no end-caps that can get jarred loose, instead a rigid core of aluminum rings that reproduce the high performance, reliability and re-engra- veabliity of an integral anilox base. Once you try our sleeves, you’ll never look back. Enercon provides corona, atmospheric plasma and flame surface treating solutions. Uteco’s use of Enercon’s high definition corona systems provides their customers with industry leading treatment results. High speed uniform treatment is achieved on a variety of substrates through a proprietary combination of electrode design, roll coating and power supply configuration. Enercon’s global network of sales and service representatives ensures technical support is always nearby. Grafikscan 3000 is a 100% full time inspection system developed to guarantee total control of the printing process. Also being featured at the open house for quick changeover functions are Automatic impression (Press to Go) and registration function (Click & Drag). J.M . Heaford Ltd. will be providing their latest sleeve dedicated moving camera plate mounter featuring an extremely accurate linear motor drive system (positional accuracy to 0.001mm), plate support table, pneumatic actuated pressure roller for plate lay down and tape application system. The machine has a touch screen interface and an intuitive, easy to use operating system and can be set up to receive posi- tional data direct from a pre-press layout program if required. A high strength frame is used for long term stability and accuracy and the highest quality components are used throughout for long term reliability. Pushing the boundaries of flexo printing, the Kodak Flexcel NX Digital Flexographic System allows you to ‘Do More With Flexo.’ Drive increased revenues through differentiated print, reduce costs through produc- tion efficiencies and increase sustainability through reductions in printed substrate waste. Print trials will be conducted with the latest plate sleeve technology and the most advanced carbon fiber bridge developments. Sun Chemical’s SunStratoTM Velocity is the right flexographic inks for package printing because it has proven to print at high speeds, printing at speeds >1500 feet / minute, giving printers and converters the confidence to gain the efficiencies offered by high speed printing presses. In addition, these inks provide maximum color strength – printing the strong colors that are being demanded for that “pop” off the shelf.
