KPG Specialist Presses

 

The Euroflex 270 tube laminate and label press has 8-colours on an 1800mm temperature controlled impression drum. Designed for printing ABL/PBL, the press includes in-line slitting so that printed rolls are ready for use on the tube forming equipment.

 

• Flexo or letterpress printing

• Up to 10-colours

• Hot or cold foiling in-line

• Non-stop production using flying splicers

• 270mm + 400mm web widths

• Label production option

 

Specialist press manufacturer, KPG have added to their range of purpose designed machines with the launch of a single drum Euroflex 9-colour press, including varnish.  Specifically designed for printing ABL/PBL tube laminates, the press provides non-stop production.

 

Fitted with two AC servo driven accumulators, unwinds (2) and rewinds (2), the press automatically slows to 25m/min, allowing the operator 45 seconds to splice the new roll.  A strategy resulting in no down-time for roll changes and no waste. Should slitting after printing be required, then the press can be fitted with two additional rewinds for narrow edge leading tubes.

 

The eight open chamber flexo units are located on a single temperature controlled 1800mm dia steel central impression cylinder.  Print units are fitted with fully retractable print cylinder shafts to facilitate quick and easy plate changes.

 

Following the launch of the Euroflex Tube Press at TokyoPack in September, KPG have installed the first press at a leading Japanese printer of tube laminates.  The customer specified 8-colours in order to meet the increasing design demands of the Asian market for high quality printed graduations on tubes.  Up to three similar colours can be used to create the graduation, leaving one print unit for special branding/company logo and four for the CMYK colours.

 

With a web width of 270mm the press incorporates an extended web path to allow good varnish flow and a high gloss finish.

 

Fitted with GEW interstation UV lamps plus final cure with  ‘E’ brick controls, other features include chill roller and chiller system, corona treater and static eliminator, BST web guides with infra-red sensors, web tension control and video scanning system.

 

With a mechanical speed of 150m/min and a maximum operating speed of 100m/min (depending on design), the press output easily fills the capacity of tube forming equipment ie 1 X AISA and 2 X KMK (PSG).

 

As well as the full range of tube laminates, this roll-to-roll press is also able to provide high quality printing of films from 25 – 350 microns. The press is also available with a 400mm web width.

 

Serious interest is now being shown in this technology by major European tube printers and similar Euroflex presses for printing polyamide casings and polybags have been installed in Poland, Russia, Slovenia and the Ukraine.

 

A CD of the press is available on request.
