The portfolio of the German manufacturer of machinery and systems for the manufacturing and converting of flexible packaging includes machines for film extrusion, printing and converting. During All in Print China 2018, Windmöller & Hölscher will demonstrate the Miraflex flexo press and the Dynastar gravure presses. (Hall N2 Stand A129)
The Miraflex offers optimized accessibility, improved ergonomics and sustainability combined with intuitive operation. The rear frame and the tunnel – the area between the printing unit and the rewind unit – have been redesigned. The automatic cleaning of the impression cylinder along with the Turboclean Advanced E inking unit and wash-up system with special electric pumps for pulsation-free ink circulation are only two examples of the numerous innovations that the new machine offers. Furthermore, the Miraflex also features the latest Vision assistance modules to enhance the machine’s intelligence and provide the operator with maximum control over the machine.
With the Dynastar, Windmöller & Hölscher presents a new-generation gravure printing machine for flexible packaging, specially developed for short and ultrashort print runs. The press is characterized by a job changeover time that is half that of the quick-change gravure printing presses commonly used today. Due to its compact design, the eight-colour version of the machine only requires floor space of around 22 x 4 m (72’ x 13’) with a hall height of 4 m (13’). The optional combination with a loan cylinder concept further increases profitability. The Dynastr is designed for print widths of 650/820/1100 mm (26”/32”/43”), a print length range of 320-700 mm (13”-28”), and a speed of max. 300 m/min 984 fpm), and can be fitted with 6-12 colour decks.
