TRESU Group’s advanced flexo solutions at Fachpack 2018

Flexo Innovator paperboard printing line


TRESU Group will be presenting its Flexo Innovator press and ink supply solutions for brand owners and board, flexible packaging and label converters at its debut appearance at Fachpack 2018, to be held from 25-27 September in Messe Nürnberg, Nuremberg Germany.

On its stand (Hall 8, Stand 8-304) will be information, animations and samples. They will demonstrate the TRESU Innovator inline press for advanced, high-quality, high-speed packaging production. The stand will exhibit its value-adding, performance and quality improving ancillaries.

Setting new standards – the Flexo Innovator

TRESU’s Flexo Innovator is a complete printing line and coating system for high-value packaging applications. It combines outstanding print quality, high-speed production and fast job changes with ergonomic design and sustainable printing.

The Flexo innovator is available in web widths from 670 mm to 1700 mm. It is a custom-configured, multi-process inline printing and converting press for folding carton board, paper, laminates and metallic substrates.

An efficient single-pass alternative to labor-intensive central impression presses, the Flexo Innovator can integrate water-based, solvent and UV-curable inks. It also offers additional high-end complementary processes including double-sided printing, gravure coating (double-sided), inkjet, cold foil lamination and converting, in a single operation.

High-speed unit-to-unit drying, automatic ink supply and sleeve systems are features of this stable, efficient platform that is capable of speeds up to 800 meters per minute.

The low-level inline architecture means that all units are easily accessible; that makes it make-ready preparations can be made on unused units while the press is running. The ability to handle multiple processes saves time in transferring materials to off-line finishing equipment, and the risk of handling damage is reduced.

With environmental concerns a high priority of brand owners and converters, the TRESU Flexo Innovator is designed for sustainable production. Features that reduce substrate and ink waste, energy and emissions, reduce the press’s environmental footprint and demonstrate TRESU’s commitment to sustainability.

Comprehensive ancillary program for automated flexo ink supply

Also exhibited at the stand will be TRESU’s ancillary solutions, comprising chamber doctor blades and ink supply systems. These provide enclosed, automatically controlled ink and coating circulation. It results in clean print, uniform ink density, reductions in material waste and makeready times, and faster production speeds.

Efficient coating for digital packaging printing

There will also be information on TRESU’s coating systems for integration with sheet-fed digital folding carton printing presses. These apply added-value full-surface and spot coatings as well as metallic embellishments directly after the printing stage. The TRESU Pinta is available for Xerox iGen presses. The TRESU iCoat 30000 is compatible for use with HP Indigo 30000 digital presses.  TRESU supports these workflows with a comprehensive range of consumables such as varnish media, tapes and sleeves, as well as cutting equipment; hence, it covers every element in this coating workflow.

Furthermore, Allan Sander, vice-president, TRESU Solutions said, “Thanks to TRESU flexo technology; from ink supply systems, to complete printing and converting lines, brand owners and converters are benefiting from advances in quality that can be comparable with gravure and offset, reduced cost per unit, increased productivity and faster time to market. A visit to the Fachpack 2018 stand is strongly recommended. It shows how these technologies are providing the basis for profitability and operational excellence in label and packaging printing.”
