Product category: Laminating plant
The experience of Uteco engineers in design and special application technologies is applied in these kind of lines where a blend of engineering expertise and technological proven systems are merged together. Beyond the different types of coaters and laminators it is worth to mention:
• Coater/laminators with reverse roll trolley for acrylic glue coating for production of adhesive tape and label tapes. The typical materials are PAPER - PET - BOPP and PVC and the laminated materials are BOPP and LDPE.
• Thermal silicone coating unit with 5-rollers trolley, acrylic glue coating with kiss trolley and Meyer bar, laminating with secondary material. Typical application for labels.
• Special triplex coater lamiator with a “sandwich” plastic net positioned between the alu foil and the film. The final production is the substrate to cover the roof.
• Coater laminator for alu foil/paper for the internal side of the cigarette packages.
The ONYX central impression flexographic printing press represents Utecos state of the art offering to the printing industry. Equipped with Direct Drive Evo® technology, it features unmatchable print quality, easy operation and extremely fast job changes. To ensure optimum dot quality, Uteco developed Direct Drive Evo® technology, our true, patent protected, direct drive technology. The CI drum and the plate sleeve mandrels are flanged directly into their drive motors ensuring that dot quality is not compromised. PCT® and PTC® technologies are used to enhance print operation during press operation. The new ONYX series of presses feature Utecos latest hardware and software developments that automatically set print register and printing pressures at job start reducing both waste and changeover times, ensuring optimum press performance and maximum return on investment.
This press features a modular concept design and it can be supplied even in a "tailor made" configuration but maintaining the characteristics of a standard machine. Topaz GL is a gearless flexographic printing press featuring on-press sleeve change for both the anilox and the plate cylinders. The sleeve change is easy and very quick and the automatic positioning of the printing unit is granted by the latest generation of cnc controlled stepping motors. The ventilation on the upper bridge is very silent thanks to a sound-proof cabin which contains the supply and exhaust fans.
