Uflex to Display Print Technology at Drupa 2016

India based global flexible packaging company Uflex will showcase the best in class technology and equipment for print and cross-media solutions at DRUPA 2016.

Launching at Dusseldorf will be technologically revolutionized Extrusion Lamination Machine. The main features of this state-of-the-art lamination machine are:

Unique design of drying hood to achieve optimum temperature;

Separate drive for impression roller;

Motorized three axis movement of carriage for air gap setting;

Chamber type doctor blade for anchor coating;

T Die with internal duckling & lip opening up to 1 mm;

Unique design of lamination drum to maintain even temperature across the width;

Sleeve type coating nip as an optional;

Facility of Coating on very thin Poly film.

Also on display would be the Electronic Line Shaft (ELS) based Rotogravure Printing Machine. Some advantages compared to conventional mechanical transmissions are: better operator access around the press; reduction in noise level; less mechanical parts to be serviced and faster print register response. The Press is built with Electronic Line Shaft technology having all printing, unwind, rewind, in-feed & out-feed equipped with servo motors and drives. By perfectly integrating new generation of electronics and ergonomically designed mechanical components, the press is made to deliver unmatched speed of 350-400 MPM.ELS models are equipped with flying splice turret unwind, rewind, sleeve type impression roller and trolley facilities and also has an option of doing reverse register coating at the last printing unit.

The flexible packaging major will also showcase a range of Embossing Cylinders for leather, paper and vinyl applications; very high and very low depth coating rollers from 0.5 GSM to 50 GSM applications like soap wrapper, overcoat, lacquer coating & ink saving in printing and special purpose customized coatings. Other highlights will be Hybrid Cylinder, an innovation from the Electro Mechanical Line capable of producing high definition image.

Elastomer flexo sleeves and elastomer flexo plates ensuring exact dot reproduction; no chemical constraint; seamless web printing and reproduction of HD image up to 5080 DPI would be a showstopper.
