The mono block frames are 4-in. thick for 8 and 10 colors for speeds up to 1,500 fpm. Specification Technical Details Print Width 24-in. - 39-in. Print Repeat Length 12-in. - 32-in. No. of Print Decks & Possible Configurations 1 - 10 colors Drive All servo Inking Systems Available Flexo, solvent, water based, UV, EB Substrates Accommodated Film, paper, paperboard Maximum Press Speed 1,200 fpm Unwind Capacity 32-in. - 72-in. Moduflex Changing market conditions have driven the demand for a greater return on investment to printing flexible packaging, folding cartons, paper products, cut and stack, shrink sleeve labels, lidding materials, multi wall paper bags and preprinted corrugated paperboard. With tighter margins, higher print quality demands, shorter run lengths and faster turnarounds, quick change presses are now critical for profitability.

No. of Print Decks & Possible Configurations 1-8colors Drive Geared/timing belt Inking Systems Available Solvent, water based Substrates Accommodated Film, paper, paperboard Maximum Press Speed 820 fpm Unwind Capacity 32-in. - 60-in. Rewind Capacity 32-in. - 72-in. Inline Converting Options Flexo (solvent, water, UV, EB), gravure, laminations, die cutting, sheeters Target Applications Paper bags, films, envelopes, light- weight paperboard SFX Stack Flexo The new generation of Stack Flexo press, the SFX, has been developed based on our long term experience in the flexo industry. The ability to use water based inks and the quietness of operation makes this machine very environmentally friendly. Based on prior experience, the SFX carries an evolutionary design with shorter changeover time required for front or reverse print, anilox roller, doctor blade, print cylinder and material rolls. This establishes the SFX as a competing choice when it comes to short run operation. Sleeve System The SFX Stack Flexo press has a worldwide reputation for high precision quality at maximum speeds and is now avail- able with the optional sleeve system (cantile- ver design) for accelerated changeover. This feature ensures a quicker return on investment even on short run jobs. • No heavy plate cylinders---no hoisting, no labor injuries Specification Technical Details Unwind Capacity 32-in. - 72-in. Rewind Capacity 32-in. - 72-in. Inline Converting Options Flexo, (solvent, water, UV, EB), gravure, laimations, die cutting Other Notable and/or Propri- etary/Patented Features Automatic register and impression setting without marks, BST X-Rite on press real time color monitoring Target Applications Short run, fast changeover, flexible packaging, pouches, pet food paper bags, gift wrap, envelopes, paper- board packaging MidCentral Euroflex, the latest European stan- dard gearless flexo press, is arguably the best value to quality gearless press on the market, pairing modern European components and design with smart Taiwanese technology and affordable equipment that allows you to stay in the competitive edge. The press is equipped with an advanced automatic register preset system, as well as the automatic print pres- sure setting for reduced waste. The Euroflex integrates a new generation computerized job management system, which incorporates auto deck position control, auto print sleeve ejection and an auto wash sys- tem, which makes Euroflex one of the fastest change machines on the market. The reduced setup time also minimizes waste, making it ideal for both short and long production runs. Specification Technical Details Rewind Capacity 32-in. - 72-in. Inline Converting Options Flexo (solvent, water, UV, EB), gravure, laminations, die cutting Target Applications Flexible packaging, pouches, pet food paper bags, gift wrap, envelopes, paperboard packaging After 44 years of experience and successful testing in an installation, KYMC introduced the Moduflex at drupa 2012. The Moduflex is a gearless, tri servo, electronic line shaft press that provides fast register setup and tighter register tolerances. The Moduflex is a dual sleeve design for both the plate and anilox for fast job changes. The AC servo direct drive on both the anilox and plate sleeve mandrels means infinitely variable repeats with no gear changes, gear marks or gear pitch problems. The result is a real advantage for printing various thickness materials. The quick change plate and anilox sleeves can be done in less than two minutes per deck. • One operator changeover---reduce overhead • Improve production---reduce changeover to a minimum Toolless Timing Belts The SFX Stack Flexo press has timing belt drive on the impres- sion rollers, quiet running, excellent register for printing quality. The SFX has become an accepted, sought after press by printing com- panies worldwide. Modern features eliminate the need to change gears for reverse print, simply change the direction of the timing belt and start printing. No tools are needed as timing belt tension is automatically controlled with a pneumatic cylinder on/off switch. Video Inspection Custom built to your specification, from video inspection to sleeve system, ceramic anilox rollers and doctor blade, the SFX Stack Press is a must for every printing company, guaranteeing low overhead cost, a quick return on investment and more client orders.
