Tresu to display new SAVEink chamber doctor blade for narrow web flexo @ Labelexpo India
At Labelexpo India 2018 (November 22-25, 2018, India Expo Center and Mart, Noida), TRESU Group will present its ancillary programme of automatic ink supply and chamber doctor blade systems for flexographic label and packaging presses, providing solutions for reducing waste, consistently clean printing at faster speeds, and improved machine uptime (Stand No. M-23).
“The labels market in India continues to expand at a high rate, and those businesses that are able to meet both quality and price demands will be those with the most efficient equipment and production workflows,” said Steen Rasmussen, Area Sales Manager, TRESU Ancillary. “Indian label and packaging converters are well positioned to benefit from the rapidly changing market conditions with their ability to respond quickly. TRESU ancillary solutions, like the new FlexiPrint SAVEink chamber and the F10 iCon ink supply system can make a huge difference to a converter’s competitiveness.”
A highlight of the stand will be the new FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber doctor blade for narrow web flexo applications up to 800mm wide. With an integrated high-capacity reservoir, the SAVEink chamber doctor blade is ideal for process and spot colours as well as high ink transfer printing without the need for a connected pump. SAVEink is suitable for long and short run production; ink may be added to the reservoir without stopping the press.
The chamber is sealed and locks into place in seconds without the risk of spilling or ink contamination. Doctor blades are in fixed, pre-set positions and require no further adjustment. Optimal contact is made with the anilox roll, minimising wear, and operators are automatically alerted when blade replacement is necessary.
TRESU’s chamber programme is available for all web widths from 185mm to 6000mm and includes light-weight, corrosion-resistant carbon fibre and ceramic variants. Using the company’s unique “Pressure Control Technology,” the chambers eliminate air contamination and microfoaming, to ensure clean, uniform print on the substrate. Suitable applications include labels, flexible packaging, and paperboard printing and coating. Chamber blades may be supplied with new presses and retrofitted on existing ones.
Chamber doctor blade systems for enhanced flexo performance
Also featured on the stand are other models in the FlexiPrint range: FlexiPrint Basic and FlexiPrint Reservoir, offering high price-performance ratios. These doctor blade systems maximise print quality, efficient ink use, and savings on waste.
Flexo Innovator: advanced inline flexographic printing
Information, samples and animations about the TRESU Flexo Innovator flexo printing machine for advanced, high-quality, high-speed packaging production for folding carton board, paper, laminates and metallic substrates will also be available on the stand.
