Aquaflex adds a 16” web width to its ELS Servo line

April 22, 2008

Aquaflex announces the introduction of the new ELS Servo press with a 16” web width.

Aquaflex announces the introduction of the new ELS Servo press with a 16” web width. Originally available in 10” x 13” web widths, the new 16” ELS Servo is even more capable and offers a greater product range including larger flexible packaging, the company says.

Mac Rosenbaum, vice president for F. L. Smithe, said, “The first ELS 16” was built as a custom adaptation for one of our customers. It required new engineering to extend the web width and optimize overall performance. The new ELS 16” performed superbly so we decided to add the 16” to our standard ELS Servo line.”

The company says the ELS Servo, with its precise registration and superior reproduction at speeds of up to 750 fpm, offers servo performance at a price comparable to mechanically driven presses in its class. In addition to traditional label stocks, the ELS Servo handles a wide range of unsupported films.

Rosenbaum continued, “The ELS Servo is a very flexible platform—its core design is very adaptable to special applications. With the addition of the 16” model, this popular platform is right-sized to become an industry top performer.”
