Tresu’s Flexo Innovator press format can be equipped with an automatic inking and control system to minimize material waste, manual intervention and setup times

Scott Hibbs, president and CEO, Tresu Americas comments, “With its robust build, advanced level of automation, ergonomic design and minimal setup times, the Flexo Innovator offers significant efficiency gains and outstanding quality consistency at extremely high production speeds. Furthermore, with its hybrid ink-set, drying and curing specification, Dominion Packaging has the versatility to offer a wide range of applications and sophisticated, bespoke solutions in both short-run and high-volume situations.”

“The Flexo Innovator specified by Dominion Packaging can switch effortlessly between multiple printing applications on all of its printing units. Moreover, special-effect coating is possible at several points in the printing sequence, thanks to the press’s ability to dry unit-to-unit. The Innovator’s unique printing capability further enhances its hybrid printing solutions, which are not achievable on a common impression press,” says Hibbs.

The Innovator press format can be equipped with an automatic inking and control system to minimize material waste, manual intervention and setup times. Tresu’s distinctive ink control system provides enclosed, automatically controlled ink circulation and uniform ink laydown, by virtue of controlling the ink chemistry during the printing process. Also available on the Innovator press format is an in-line inspection and color management system to maintain quality consistency on-the-fly throughout the printing run.

Other features available on the Tresu Innovator include a state-of-the-art hot air drying system that can provide extended drying capability on any printing unit on the press. Tresu’s innovative approach to drying reduces emissions by using re-circulated air. Additionally, further productivity is achieved with the use of a high efficiency unwind/rewind stands that limit butt-splicing waste to one diameter of paper stock on the core. The Flexo Innovator will enable Dominion Packaging to expand into other fast growing print market segments where container sizes are differentiated by brands with bespoke pack sizes and shapes.
