RK’s FlexiProof 100 and FlexiProof 100/UV offers a high speed, operator-friendly machine for the production of proofs using water, solvent or UV flexographic inks. It is an essential tool for all those involved in the manufacture and use of flexo inks. Ideal for quality control, presentation samples, R&D and computer colour matching data.

With the UV attachment this will enable users to accurately simulate UV printing for all prepress applications, and address problems such as pinholing, adhesion, absorption, gloss, shrinkage, wetting, etc.  An LED UV head is also available.

The main components of this innovative machine are identical to a standard flexographic press.  FlexiProof 100 utilises a doctored ceramic anilox roller and a photopolymer plate, and, with a maximum speed of 100 metres/min, realistic printability testing can be undertaken on all types of flexo substrates.

A scaled down but exact version of a full sized flexo press, this machine eliminates the need to use a production line printing press for pilot runs.
