Capping Machines

In the capping machine the printed tubes get their matching caps and some special extras like welded membranes. It works within a production line or stands alone.

Finished printed tubes are transferred to the capping machine which they leave again with properly set caps. What seems very simple, requires a high level of technique and precision.

The brand new A240 puts the finishing touch on printed and varnished tubes by applying any desired cap automatically. From the first design stages on, emphasis was placed on quick and efficient set up as well as minimum maintenance.

The advantages are obvious:

High speeds with continuous high quality.
Easily adaptable to future demands.
Added features can be retrofitted economically.
Maximum variability due to modular design.

Accumulators are installed between individual production units, compensate different production speeds and thus increase the efficiency of the entire line. Even if single machines are temporarily stopped the accumulator as a material buffer supplies the next machines with tubes or cans.

The advantages are obvious:

Damage to the cans or tubes by extended dwell times is avoided
Less production stops increase the efficiency of the complete line
Tailored machine design for individual requirements

Offset Printers

The Hinterkopf printing units demonstrate their strength particularly if cans and tubes are printed at high quality. They master even the most sophisticat-ed tasks with up to nine ink units – in a precise, reliable and operator-friendly way.

High Tech developed by Hinterkopf

With our high tech Hinterkopf printing units you will profit from our decades of expe-rience in the decoration of cans and tubes. The basis for the best possible solution of any printing task is always our outstanding engineering performance like temperature-adjustable plate cylinders and ink fountain rollers.

It’s the adjustment that decides

If you want the print image to be perfect the correct adjustment is essential. You will set the plate roller with utmost precision axially and radially in a very comfortable way at the front side of the printing unit. Automatic tracking of the form rollers ensures a constant print quality when the penetration depth of the plate into the blanket has misadjusted. Features like exactness and operating comfort are the advantages of the ink quantity control via a programmable logic controller (PLC) by touch screen.

Less wear and tear for longer life

The investment in a Hinterkopf high tech printing unit will pay off twice as you will reach peak values with regard to print quality and service life. E. g. a toothed belt drives the solid printing drum. This drum is supported very precisely. The plate gear wheels run in a closed oil-bath box, separated from the printing area. A proper and clean solution for less wear!
