With up to 12 colors, a cut-off from 400 to 1,200mm, a maximum web width of 1,650mm and a maximum printing speed of up to 500m/min, in terms of automation and operation this extremely innovative press meets various production demands in flexible packaging.
According to KBA-Flexotecnica, the NEO XD LR is the first fully hybrid machine featuring the unique possibility of using different flexo printing technologies ranging from solvent- or water-based inks, UV-LED or EB inks, either as single printing process, or as a multi-process combination; on the main central drum printing group as well as on inline downstream units. This can all be done on a wide range of substrates, ranging from flexible film to paper and board.
Cutting-edge technical solutions have been applied to the NEO XD. During the EVO XG’s development phase, the focus was on safety, which was addressed by new wrap-up safety covers with protective glass doors ensuring maximum operator health and safety.
The NEO XD is equipped with a number of new integrated electronic solutions carefully selected to make the machine’s automation and control systems more effective and easier to use. Latest generation touchscreen panels serving as a user-machine interface for data and operation are an effective response to printers’ increasing demands for easier interaction with the machine’s control system.
Following a growth in sales of almost 20% last year, KBA-Flexotecnica aims to strengthen its prestigious position among the world’s leading manufacturers of high-tech and high-performance flexo presses in the mid to high-end market segments.
