nation of large/long and small products. The RSM-Digi/VS is ideal for use with OPP, PE, PS, PET and more. Available with web widths to 33-in. and die cutting repeat of 48-in. SPGPrints (Booth 530) will attract custom- ers with its new variLEX hybrid CTP (com- puter to plate) and CTS (computer to screen) imager, a single digital imaging solution for high definition flexo, dry offset, screen and letterpress printing forms. Intended for packaging and label applications and with HD optics, the variLEX offers a resolution of up to 4,000 dpi. It can be equipped with a multi beam diode laser system for ablating the black mask and/or a multi beam diode laser system to directly expose UV sensitive materials, such as screens. Sun Chemical (Booth 5413) will showcase its full range of solutions for the narrow web, tag and label, and converting markets, from inks, coatings and consumables to brand protection, low migration, prepress services with high definition digital plate technology, packaging design/brand consultancy and a dispenser program which lowers ink spend by up to 25 percent. Visitors will be introduced to Sun Chemi- cal’s Solaris System, a complete line of inks, consumables and coatings designed to meet the printing needs of all narrow web and packaging printers. The full range includes products for virtually all applications, from self adhesive and in mold labels to wrap arounds, shrink sleeves, tubes, and food and pharmaceutical packaging. Also on display will be Sun Chemical’s SunSpectro family of reverse/surface print inks. These inks in- crease pressroom productivity by printing at high speeds without defects and are designed to provide resistance to heat, water, scuff and rub. Toyo Ink America8 (Booth 3009) will be fea- turing UV PowerFLEX, specifically designed to be a solid all around UV curable product line. You can achieve great results over a wide range of flexographic printing applications. UV PowerFLEX provides good adhesion on both plastic and paper substrates. It is available in process and Pantone base colors along with opaque white and UV Extender. UV PowerFLEX inks are high strength, low viscosity, provide excellent transfer, low dot gain and quick cure response. TRESU Group (Booth 1308) presents ancil- lary products that improve ink flow. High- lights include ink supply systems, chambered doctor blade systems and plate cleaners. The F10 iCon ink supply system automates ink pressure, viscosity and temperature control in flexo printing machines. This, in turn, ensures a constant, accurate ink density on the printed substrate and prevents air from contaminating the ink chamber. Sealed, pressure controlled chambered doctor blade systems enable direct, bubble free transfer of ink/coating to the anilox cells. This ensures a clean, blister free printed image with fast drying characteristics, better reflection and higher gloss values, whether on paper or film. Also, the automation of ink flow greatly AUGUST 2014 | FLEXO 57
