NEO XD LR

Open for solvent-based, water-based, EB and UV-LED inks

The new NEO XD LR HYBRID, that was first presented at drupa, is the first flexo press that is prepared for production with solvent-based, water-based, UV-LED and EB ink systems on many different printing substrates. In the event of changes in the market, the press configuration allows alternative dryer systems to be retrofitted. This gives users maximum flexibility and cutting-edge technology. With up to 12 printing units, printing lengths of up to 1,200 mm, a maximum printing width of 1,650 mm and a maximum printing speed of 500 m/min, this CI system, which has been further optimised in terms of automation and ergonomics, is suitable for a wide variety of requirements in flexible package printing.

The option of upgrading the press with additional individual printing units using flexo or gravure printing technology extends its performance range. True-to-register printing, varnishing, coating or laminating in recto and / or verso printing are thus possible.

Product Information

The first true hybrid press for flexible package printing

Through its configuration in the area of the printing units and the option of retrofitting alternative dryer technologies, the NEO XD LR is the first true hybrid press prepared for processing solvent and water-based, UV-LED or EB inks. The consistent use of one inking system as well as combinations of different inking systems on the central impression cylinder and in in-line follow-up aggregates is possible for many different printing substrates. This gives users maximum flexibility and cutting-edge technology.

A newly designed safety concept with transparent, secured doors made of protective glass improves working safety, accessibility and handling. New design solutions make the changeover of anilox roller and printing sleeves easier and faster with large web widths and printing lengths. Some of the set-up operations can be carried out while production is running. The wide range of automatic reel stands makes customer-specific press configurations possible.

Touchscreen panels for entering data and commands can be moved from one working level to the other, thus facilitating the interaction between man and machine.

The "pipeless" doctor chamber is highly appreciated by users, as it allows unrestricted access. Setup and cleaning processes are thus made significantly simpler and faster.

AIF Auto Impression Flexotecnica

The "AIF" auto impression setting system allows fast production startup without special print marks. Setup waste is reduced to less than 30 m.
