“We are very satisfied with our two existing flexo presses. Service, quality and further technological advances convinced us once again that we can continue to grow with Koenig & Bauer technology,” said Managing Director Shahid Sheikh OBE. “
The new Evo XD from Koenig & Bauer was fired up in Leicester, England in early 2018 and will primarily print flexible packaging.
The U.K.-based Clifton Packaging was founded in 1981. In recent years Clifton has grown considerably which resulted in the company being recognized by the London Stock Exchange as one of the top 1000 most aspiring and fastest growing companies in the UK. The company specializes in high-quality packaging for FMCG markets and the Wet Protein sector. These products are sold throughout the world, including Africa and the Middle East.
Furthermore, the Clifton Group also offers contract packing services and sells food processing and packing machinery including multihead weighers and ancillary equipment.
With its eight printing units, a new dryer generation and newly developed drive and control technology, the Evo XD is tailored to meet high-quality requirements on a wide range of substrates. The CI flexo press has a web width of 1,320 mm and a cut-off of 370 to 1,000 mm. The technical highlights include a highly efficient energy-saving ventilation system in the bridge dryer and the fully automatic AIF impression setting system, which needs no ink during the adjustment process. All of the important automation and control functions are integrated in the new touch screen panel. The press can run at speeds of up to 500 m per min depending on substrate.
