FLEXO Magazine : August 2011

Consider it done. Small footprint. Minimal operating envelope. The 15-S is ideal for modern plants where space is at a premium and efficiency is a primary concern. It's unique face-to-face design enables both the unwind & rewind to be accessed and monitored from one central position. The highly efficient web path also minimizes the height requirement. Exceptional performance and features for a remarkable price. Every aspect of the 15-Series is state-of-the-art, except the price. From operator and maintenance accessibility, to speed and wide range of substrates, to premium F&K performance and quality — all at a highly competitive price. Today’s business environment requires solid reasons to move ahead. Examine the advances incorporated into today's Fischer & Krecke 15-Series flexo press and you'll have all the justifi- cation you’ll ever need. The Fischer & Krecke 15-Series Flexo Press Off-press set-up for minimal waste. Our revolutionary smartGPSTM, Graphic Positioning System, establishes registration and press settings before each flexo sleeve is mounted on the press. This eliminates the ‘trial and error’ fine-tuning of each color thereby eliminating over 90% of all of the materials wasted during typical job changes. Fastest changeovers in the industry. In addition to material waste, smartGPS also eliminates wasted time. When the sleeves are already set, press time is used to run jobs, not lengthy set-ups. Nobody else can do this because nobody else has anything like smartGPS.

We have fitted a motorized lifting and locking system that means the operator can change an anilox roll in just three minutes, the CUBE touch-screen interface is intuitive and easy-to-use, the built-in Matic system memorizes the specifications for repeat jobs, making it quick to reset them, and the non-stop delivery lets you produce piles up to 7 ft. high. On top of all that, the line will run consistently at 10,000 sph, so its productivity is quite amazing.” Creasey says such presses can also be configured off-line as “stand-alone” ma- chines, or in-line with a corrugated diecut- ter for a complete, high productivity line. “Such configurations deliver a printed and die-cut blank ready for folding and gluing or for shipping straight to the customer.” n About the Author: Alistair Smailes is a publicity specialist at St. Roman’s Media, where he represents the Bobst Group and its state-of-the-art Masterflex HQ press. a “start & go”system which senses printed marks on the sheet, uses the information to bring each print unit into register on start-up--and then keep it there throughout production without the need for operator intervention. Quadri and hexachrome processes developed for recycled brown paper, represent a new application that delivers bright, high quality. It opens up new marketing approaches for brand owners and new products for converters.
