Denmark • At ICE Europe 2017, the Tresu Group will showcase ancillary equipment, including chamber doctor blades, supply systems and circulators for controlling and automating ink and coating supply in virtually all flexo printing situations.
Throughout the event, Tresu will be exhibiting automated ink and coating supply solutions that, according to the company, enable increased uptime, faster printing speeds, minimal manual input and reduced material waste. The F10 iCon ink supply system regulates ink flow, pressure and viscosity, ensuring a constant, accurate ink density on the printed substrate, without air contamination. This system also provides thorough automatic cleaning, achieving a complete ink change cycle in five to ten minutes.
Additionally, Tresu claims its chamber doctor blade systems bring reduced ink and substrate waste, uniform print quality, increased press speeds faster than 600m/min (1970 ft/min), shorter cleaning times and reduced emissions. Featuring the company’s patented seal system, they prevent leakage and air contamination, ensuring clean, blister-free print results with fast drying characteristics, better reflection and higher gloss values.
When doctor blades need replacing, Tresu’s patented clamping systems enable changeovers in less than two minutes. The chamber programme includes lightweight, corrosion-resistant carbon fibre chambers that offer protection against detergents and adhesives with pH values in excess of 9.0. All converting and coating applications are covered, from closed-cassette chambers for label presses, up to 6000mm-wide (236″) types for corrugated board and tissue printing.
