The TRESU Flexo Innovator: New automation features

At drupa2024 TRESU reveals the industry’s next generation of automation features for the TRESU Flexo Innovator – adding further to customers’ value of entering a TRESU partnership.

TRESU offers the industry’s fastest inline multi-station flexo printing machines based on more than 40 years of accumulated flexo printing know-how. The installed base of TRESU Flexo Innovators exceeds 80 presses with more than 500 printing units supplied to leading global brands within folding carton, lottery, and liquid packaging around the world.  

With the combination of the industry’s fastest flexo printing output and our targeted modular service concepts, the TRESU Flexo Innovator achieves Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE) levels second to none in the industry. Further TRESU Flexo Innovator news will be presented at the drupa event in May.

Proven TRESU ancillary equipment and the new TRESU InkFlex® ink supply system

TRESU’s proven high performance flexo ancillary equipment provides full control of  any ink and coating circulation. The new ink supply system TRESU InkFlex® features a brand-new user interface requiring minimum interaction from operators and adds full operational flexibility and performance.

TRESU’s new generation of ink- and coating supply systems is designed for improved control, connectivity, and data opportunities – with full OEM integration.

The precision engineered chamber doctor blade systems are supplied in carbon fiber, ceramic, or aluminum and for narrow web printing or wide web for corrugated board printing up to 6600 mm. The TRESU MaxiPrint Concept will be on display at drupa.

Coating as clear as glass: Offline coating of digitally printed sheet fed folding carton
The TRESU iCoat II is designed on a flexible modular platform, which can be configured from a selected range of modules to accommodate short run printing jobs.

Integrating best-in-class OEM coating technology, the TRESU iCoat II features a new feeder module enabling offline installations and free choice of digital printing technology.
Inline or offline, the proven TRESU iCoat II can be configured to suit any coating need for flexible sheetfed spot or flood coating with fast and efficient job changes.

Application of sustainable water-based grease barrier coating replacing PE laminates
In our inhouse TRESU DemoCenter we brought leading industry experts together and developed a new coating application concept. With recyclable paper board and WB coating with grease barrier performance, our tests confirm that it is now possible to replace PE based laminates in food packaging in single pass operations – with great results and no pinholes.

Key to this achievement is our high-speed hot-air VelociDryer™ with industry leading heat transfer coefficients. The dryer can be supplied with gas or electricity as heating source to meet individual customer requirements of power supply choices.

Extending performance with modular service concepts and genuine parts
TRESU’s modular service concepts, genuine parts, service engineers and trained technicians allow customers to gain maximum value from TRESU’s flexo technology and help customers drive down waste and down time.  Our aim is to optimize customers’ Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) in a continuous process based on customers’ needs.
