TRESU’s F10 iCon ink supply system, automatically regulating flow pressure, rate and viscosity in flexo printing

At Labelexpo Europe 2017, TRESU Group (Stand 7D53) will highlight its comprehensive range of ancillary products for controlling ink flow in flexographic label and package printing situations, along with video presentations of its complete printing and converting lines for lottery and game cards.

TRESU’s ancillary program includes an extensive range of chamber doctor blade systems for narrow, mid and wide-web flexo applications, as well as ink supply systems, providing a complete solution for automating ink flow throughout the flexo press—from bucket to substrate. This results in significant reductions in material and ink waste, setup times, emissions and manual intervention as well as high quality consistency at speeds that can exceed 600 m/min (approx. 2000 ft/min).

Chamber doctor blade systems

Reservoir chamber doctor blade

The TRESU chamber doctor blade program includes lightweight, corrosion-resistant carbon fiber and ceramic variants and covers all flexo printing situations, in widths from 185 mm to in excess of 6000 mm (236 in). Assisted by the company’s patented seals and a constant pressure rate maintained by the supply system,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 two minutes.

Among the chamber exhibits is the closed-cassette FlexiPrint Reservoir, ideal for many narrow-web uses. The portable chamber slots easily into position, facilitating fast setup chambers, including when printing processes are interchanged. FlexiPrint Reservoir needs no pump and operates at press speeds of up to 300 m/min (984 ft/min).

For wide web and corrugated flexo applications between 1600 mm (63 in) and 6000 mm (236 in), the carbon fiber TRESU MaxiPrint Concept cuts cleaning time and improves quality as well as consistency. Comprising a closed chamber, an ink supply unit, and a cleaning cycle, MaxiPrint Concept offers fast, automatic internal cleaning, corrosion-resistance, improved print quality consistency and reduced ink loss. Its chamber features integrated cleaning nozzles with robustly designed water-shot mechanisms, for a complete ink change and cleaning cycle within three to five minutes. MaxiPrint Concept is designed for new OEM solutions as well as retrofit projects on existing machinery.

F10 iCon ink supply system

TRESU’s F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity from the bucket, through the chamber, to the press, maintaining constant, preset ink density values for complete production runs. When ink changes are required, the F10 iCon system carries out fast and thorough cleaning of the chamber automatically, and returns almost all unused contents to the bucket for reuse on subsequent jobs. With the F10 iCon, simultaneous ink change cycles on printing stations take minutes, delivering significant time and materials savings per job.

High-performance flexographic printing line for lottery cards

At the show, there will also be video presentations of TRESU Solutions’ flexographic printing line, for printing instant lottery tickets and gamecards.

With its automated controls, stable servo-driven build and capability to include numerous high-value printing and finishing processes, the TRESU lottery printing line provides a productive solution for converting foil and cards between 114 µm (4.5-point) and 609 µm (24-point) thickness into secure, high-end products. Features of the press include inkjet imaging towers to print variable game data, along with integrated drying and curing systems to allow easy switching between aqueous, solvent, and UV-ink sets at several printing stations.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
