M5 Excellence at Labelexpo Brussels
Nuova Gidue demonstrates its Digital Flexo method of automating changeovers of the plate cylinders on the new Combat M5 Excellence UV flexo press. Operators place the plate cylinder for the next job behind the one that is running on each print station. On job changeovers, the press slows and each print cylinder is sequentially ejected ready for automatically loading the next cylinder. The Print Tutor system automatically adjusts each plate for register and print pressure as the press ramps back to full speed. This is guided by system of cameras on each print station.
