48 FLEXO august 2011 www.flexography.org Platform Press taking Combination Printing to New Levels By torben Rasmussen & Lars Eriksen Take a common base. Configure a press according to your needs. Make it a modular flexo press, a platform- based offset press, a stand-alone digital solution, or a combination of them all. Sound like a dream? In packaging, printing and converting circles, it’s a reality. Some say, “The future is now.” Platform or combination presses have been continuously improving and winning favor among innovative printers/con- verters in recent years. The technology first burst on the scene in the early- to mid-1990s. Today, it’s said to offer previously unattainable levels of flexibility by applying common syner- gies in handling complex materials. UNIFORM PLATFORM, COMMON FOUNDATION • Configure your press to fit every job. • Utilize the advantages of different printing tech- niques in any desired combination. • Change from flexo to offset easily. Simply switch the anilox sleeve with a plate cylinder and a flexo plate sleeve with an offset blanket sleeve. • Sleeve technology is today’s competitive tooling. • Integrate future applications seamlessly. torben and Lars agree that platform technology is being taken to an even higher level.
