K’2013 Düsseldorf (booth no. 4 B52) – 16th-23rd October 2013
4-colour rotary dry offset printer suitable for the decoration on the top flat side of plastic caps used for water plastic bottles or soft drinks.
This new printer integrates the range of MOSS printing machines especially manufactured for plastic caps top decoration.
The plastic closures during their passage throughout this printer receive the following operations:
orienting and channelling to loading device; loading on the cap-holder wheel which has a continuous rotation; removal of dust and static electricity and then flame treatment; 4-colour printing plus UV curing; unloading; individual camera printing quality inspection; piece counter to fill the boxes with the exact number of closures pre-set in the system.
MO 3062 can print 1250 ppm (75.000 pph) and it has to be considered as the MOSS “entry level” printer, unlikely from the highly sophisticated model MO 2062 that may offer higher productivity, respectively 2.500 ppm and 5.000 ppm, according to its configuration, as well as the unique PRE-PRINT application.
K’2013 will offer also the chance to see in operation the new laser printing system (logos, codes, promotions, and so on) to print inside one-piece caps that cannot be decorated by the traditional offset system MOSS manufactures, MO 3000 STI, which is more suitable to decorate two-piece PP caps, due to the risk of possible contamination.
