At Labelexpo India 2018, TRESU Group will present its ancillary program of automatic ink supply and chamber doctor blade systems for flexographic label and packaging presses providing solutions for reducing waste, consistently clean printing at faster speeds, and improved machine uptime (Stand M23, 22-26 November, India Expo Center and Mart, Delhi/NCR).
A highlight at the stand will be the new TRESU FlexiPrint Reservoir SAVEink chamber doctor blade for narrow web flexo applications up to 800 mm wide. With an integrated high capacity reservoir, the TRESU SAVEink chamber doctor blade is ideal for process and spot colors as well as high ink transfer printing, without the need for a connected pump. TRESU SAVEink is suitable for long and short run production; ink may be added to the reservoir without stopping the press.
The TRESU SAVEink chamber is sealed and locks into place in seconds without the risk of spilling or ink contamination. Its doctor blades are in fixed, pre-set positions and require no further adjustment: optimal contact is made with the anilox roll, minimizing wear.
Visitors to Labelexpo India will also be able to experience the TRESU SAVEink chamber doctor blade installed on a press at the Alliance Printech PVT stand (F21).
TRESU’s chamber program is available for all web widths from 185 mm to 6000mm and includes light-weight, corrosion-resistant carbon fiber and ceramic variants. Using the company’s unique ‘Pressure Control Technology’, the chambers eliminate air contamination and microfoaming, to ensure clean, uniform print on the substrate. Suitable applications include labels, flexible packaging, and paperboard printing and coating. Chamber blades may be supplied with new presses and retrofitted on existing ones.
Also featured on the stand are other models in the FlexiPrint range: FlexiPrint Basic and FlexiPrint Reservoir, offering high price-performance ratios. These doctor blade systems maximize print quality, efficient ink use, and savings on waste.
FlexiPrint Basic offers high-quality doctoring for anilox rolls from 80 mm to 2000 mm in width and between 60 mm and 400 mm in diameter. Suitable for water, solvent and UV-curable inks and coatings, FlexiPrint Basic features TRESU’s patented ‘E-Line’ eccentric clamping system and seals for fast, accurate and easy doctor blade changes, and protection of ink quality.
FlexiPrint Reservoir is designed for water-based and UV coatings. It can be manually filled or used with a pump. The easy-load cassette enables fast colour/ coating changes and the patented seals mean that surplus ink can be reserved in the chamber for future use. Information on the carbon fiber MaxiPrint Concept chamber for web widths from 1600 mm to 6000 mm will also be available.
Ensuring a smooth supply of ink can save time and money and contribute to improved productivity. TRESU is recognized for its ink supply systems, which can be part of the configuration of a new press or retrofitted. Its flagship solution is the F10 iCon system that provides a complete cleaning and ink change cycle in 5 to 15 minutes for standard viscosity inks. Information of the full range of TRESU coating circulation and conditioners for high viscosity inks will be available on the stand.
