TRESU exhibits automated ink supply solutions for enhanced flexo performance, with presentations of Flexo Innovator inline press at PrintPack India 2019January 30, 2019
At PrintPack India 2019,TRESU Group, together with its regional agent CGSASP, will show its ancillary solutions for automating ink supply and enhancing quality, efficiency and output on flexographic label and packaging presses (Stand G12, Hall 9, India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, NCR Delhi, 1-6 February). The company will also present information about its Flexo Innovator, an inline flexo printing and converting machine for paperboard applications, combining high speed, minimised waste and fast setup times.
TRESU’s Ancillary division will highlight the vital contribution its programme of chamber doctor blades and ink supply systems make in optimising print quality, waste elimination and machine uptime.
Pressure-control with chamber doctor blades for all flexo situations
Covering label, paperboard, flexible packaging, tissue and specialist coating applications, TRESU’s chamber programme is available for all web widths between 185mm and 6000mm. Using the company’s unique “Pressure Control Technology”, the chambers eliminate air contamination and microfoaming, to ensure clean, uniform print on the substrate. A long-life rubber seal system provides an airtight enclosure, preventing leakage, and maintains consistent ink pressure. Ink quality is assured by a liquid barrier, formed between the rotating anilox rolls and the chamber, preventing air from entering the cells during production. The chamber doctor blades also feature fast, safe blade-exchange as standard. Light-weight, corrosion-resistant carbon fibre and ceramic alternatives are available. Chamber doctor blades may be supplied with new presses and retrofitted on existing ones.
For web widths from 1600mm to 6000mm (63in to 236.22in), the new TRESU MaxiPrint Concept chamber features an integrated cleaning nozzle with a robustly designed water-shot mechanism for fast, efficient cleaning of the chamber and the anilox roll. A low-pressure shot mechanism ensures minimal water loss during cleaning. The TRESU ‘P-Line’ pneumatic clamping system ensures blade-exchange within two minutes.
The TRESU FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber doctor blade is for narrow web flexo applications up to 800mm wide. With an integrated high-capacity reservoir, the TRESU SAVEink is ideal for process and spot colours as well as high ink-transfer printing, without the need for a connected pump. It is sealed and locks into place in seconds without the risk of spilling or ink contamination. Ink may be added to the reservoir without stopping the press.
