FLEXO Magazine : August 2011
www.flexography.org AUGUST 2011 FLEXO 39 to affix it to any form of packaging. That includes bottles, tins, boxes or just packaging wraps. By making use of the combination of printing and convert- ing on one press line, the final product can be made at once in an applicable-ready form. A given rule in the configuration of a label press: the more complex a label's printing and converting requirements, the longer a UV-flexo label press is going to be. For example, a 14-unit UV-label press will, for certain, incorporate eight or more converting auxiliaries---silkscreen, cold foil, overprinting of decorative metallics, security features (special effect inks, glues, magnetics, thermographics), hot stamping, embossing, Braille, multi-layer/surface and multi- side printing, etc. In each and all of these cases, a flexo print- ing unit serves as the base. COMMAND & CONTROL State-of-the-art processor technology and a friendly ma- chine interface translate to ease of operation in command and control of a complex press line. UV-label presses are enabled by today's technical intelligence. • Smart, servo-drive motors power multiple on-press com- ponents. • Automated registration systems maintain all colors and converting accuracies in perfect matching positions, even in case of multi-layers. • User-friendly knobs and press settings that are easy to understand, make it easy for operators to work with the press intelligence. • Illogical, impossible and / or damaging instructions are excluded or avoided by the steering computer. • All settings--drive, print tension, registration and other necessary parameters---substrates, colors, composi- tion---are stored automatically and maintained for re-use by machine processors. • An auxiliary rail, a state-of-the-art device on which assis- tive devices can be properly positioned with respect to printing units, is positioned on top of the UV-flexo label printing units. It helps to keep everything at hand and provides a distinctive competitive advantage. It can be parked in case of non-use. Operators find the automated tools a great help in both reducing waste and making a long machine line manageable and effective. Such systems often generate reports to shift- or printroom management for production-control reasons. CONVERTING INFLUENCES Flexo machine capabilities can be extended with multiple printing units and it can be done in combination with multiple converting technologies. Such smart combinations can be tai- lored by press manufacturers to almost any market demand.
