Omet’s X4 flexo press makes its industry debut

September 29, 2011

The new press features short setup times, reduced waste levels, and short circumference plate cylinders to enable short runs.

The new XFlex X4 flexo press made its industry debut from Omet this week in Brussels. The X4 is the younger sister of the XFlex X6 which came out in 2007.

The X4 is a low cost press capable of short runs with a minimum 5.5” circumference plate cylinder, print consistency to reduce waste levels, and short setup times. Twin servo motors drive each each print unit, and integrated pre- and register system (Vision-1) offer automatic register precision.

Omet is running demonstrations on its Varyflex V2 combination press, with 530 mm width and including the Vision-2 high-speed register control system. Also featured is the XFlex X6 430 mm, with full electronic sleeve technology, equipped with different finishing units including a new moveable hot foil printing system that can be located at any point in the press line, as well as a new high performance waste stripping unit.

Also on display is the new Omet offset unit with sleeves, which will be integrated into the XFlex line shortly after Labelexpo.
