Daetwyler Graphics is debuting the advanced CFM P and its younger sibling, the CFM Econo at drupa 2016 (Hall 16 Stand D10). In addition, the company is showcasing its newly developed Finishstar SlimLine S. The grinding and polishing machine is an important component of an automatic cylinder line developed together with other Heliograph Holding companies. The CFM P – the company’s flagship for high-accuracy turning, grinding and polishing of gravure cylinders – has several additional features that increase quality and productivity. These include integrated diameter measurement, a greater degree of automation and more operating convenience. Together, these ensure achievement of the desired set point. Alternative grinding and polishing technologies also enable more homogeneous surfaces at noticeably shorter process times. Such innovations considerably
reduce production time and lead to massive increases in productivity.
Daetwyler Graphics’s Finishstar Slim LineS1410 grinding and polishing machine is making its first European appearance at drupa. This newest machine generation is designed for integration into fully automatic production lines that manufacture hollow gravure cylinders with ball lengths of upto 1400mm and a maximum weight of 150kg. Optimal process times that guarantee high throughput, coupled with compact and space saving construction, make this equipment the ideal component for the automated concept of the future that the Heliograph Holding is bringing about.
