TRESU Group highlights its productivity-boosting ink supply and chambered doctor blade technology at Labelexpo Americas 2014
TRESU Group (Booth 1308), the global supplier of flexo technology, presents ancillary products that improve ink flow at Labelexpo Americas 2014 (9-11 September, Chicago, USA). Highlights 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 reduces the need for manual intervention during the production run.
Chambered doctor blade systems include the FlexiPrint IMW E-Line, for web widths up to 1800mm (70.8”) and speeds up to 500m/min (1640ft/min); and the closed-cassette FlexiPrint reservoir, which needs no pump and operates at press speeds of up to 300m/min (984ft/min). The E-Line system, including clamp, allows for safe blade changeover in less than two minutes. TRESU’s patented Rubber Seal System ensures an airtight closure, eliminating the chance of leakage and allowing long-term storage of ink, for instance when production is interrupted during weekend shutdowns.
In addition to ancillary products, TRESU offers flexo coating systems for integration into digital sheet-fed folding carton lines, under its DigitalSolutions division, and custom-built flexo machines via its Solution division. The TRESU iCoat coating system has been adapted specially for HP Indigo 10000 and HP Indigo 30000 presses. Together, the TRESU and HP systems offer a complete printing folding carton production line - for printing, full surface or selective coating and stacking.
