TRESU Group will participate at Sino Corrugated 2017 from 11-14 April 2017, which takes place in Shanghai, China. The company will showcase the recently developed carbon fiber doctor blade chamber and F10 iCon – ink supply system for flexo printing of corrugated cardboard. TRESU Group offers flexible, customized solutions for flexo printing machines and ancillary products for flexo, digital and offset presses. The company boasts of a wealth of experience and expertise in the development and production of engineered solutions for this industry and supplies to end-customers, OEMs and partners. With more than 98% of the production being exported, TRESU Group is a strong player in the global market.
Automated ink regulation and cleaning with F10 iCon ink supply system
The F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity from the bucket to the flexo press, thereby maintaining constant, predetermined ink density values throughout production runs. Additionally, when ink changes are required, the supply system provides fast, thorough automatic cleaning of the chamber, and returns the remaining content to the bucket for reuse in subsequent jobs. The F10 iCon provides simultaneous ink change cycles on printing stations in minutes, resulting in significant time and materials savings per job.
Chamber doctor blade program: Uniform quality print and easy handling
TRESU’s chamber doctor blade systems, especially when used in conjunction with the F10 iCon ink supply system, offer further efficiency and quality benefits. The TRESU chamber program includes lightweight, corrosion-resistant carbon fiber and ceramic variants, and covers all flexo printing situations, including print widths exceeding 6000 mm (236 inch) often visible in corrugated print. TRESU chamber doctor blades prevent leakage and air contamination, thereby ensuring clean, blister-free print results with fast drying characteristics, better reflection and higher gloss values. When doctor blades need replacing, TRESU’s patented clamping systems enable changeovers in less than 2 minutes.
MaxiPrint Chamber Concept for fastest cleaning cycles
For web applications between 1600 mm and 6000 mm, the MaxiPrint Concept is a lightweight carbon-fiber or ceramic chamber, with integrated inking and cleaning systems for fast cleaning cycles. It features integrated cleaning nozzles with robustly designed water-shot mechanism for efficient cleaning of the chamber and anilox roll during the cleaning cycle. Relatively fast emptying occurs because ink or coating fluid is evacuated through both the chamber’s inlet and outlet. The ink change and cleaning cycle are typically completed within approximately 5 minutes.
Based in Beijing, TRESU’s China subsidiary offers fast-response technical support and smooth management of ink supply retrofitting projects that can significantly enhance the performance of existing printing lines. Gray Chang, sales and technical manager, TRESU China comments, “For China’s packaging suppliers, achieving greater process efficiency is of paramount importance, to control rising production costs. TRESU’s controlled ink supply solutions with light-weight, durable carbon fiber chambers are ideal for meeting the market’s challenges—automating and eliminating waste from the process while providing
the basis for higher print speeds without compromising quality.”
