The gearless EVO XG CI flexo press installed in Belfast is engineered especially for high printing speeds of up to 600m/min (1,969ft/min) and printing with water-based inks on paper and board up to 450g/m² (290lbs). Its innovative technical systems make it a high-performance press.
The press at Delta Print & Packaging in Belfast primarily produces fast-food packaging for the European market. McDonalds, Kellogg’s, Nokia and Jacobs belong to the firm’s customer base. Furthermore, the flexo press produces a multitude of packaging for breakfast cereals, sweets, food and mobile phones. It is run reel-to-reel to a rotary die-cutting line and a reel-to-sheet feeder, which in turn feeds sheets to two flatbed die-cutters.
The EVO XG with a web width of 1,500mm (59in) has a central-cylinder unit with 10 printing units as well as two inline flexo printing units with multi-zone drying for the reliable processing of anti-grease coatings and other coating applications.
