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.
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
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.
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.
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
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
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
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
to view video.
