Anderson & Vreeland highlights Screen digital press, ThermoflexX and more


Experts are on hand to explain the fine points of optimizing flexo and digital imaging in production environments.

Anderson & Vreeland is highlighting key software and equipment, which is backed by the company's team of technical experts who are on hand to explain the fine points of optimizing flexo and digital imaging in production environments. Two centerpieces in the A&V booth are the Screen Truepress L350UV inkjet label press and the Xeikon ThermoflexX 30 platemaker.

The Screen Truepress L350UV press uses UV inkjet technology to cost-effectively print short and medium length runs on a full range of standard label substrates at speeds up to 164 fpm. Its performance makes it suitable for modern flexo presses, and it can be configured with workflow and color management software to provide end-to-end label production.

Demonstrating this at Labelexpo, the Truepress is using workflow and color management solutions from Hybrid Software and GMG Color to produce beer labels designed for a local Chicago brewery. A new Anderson & Vreeland white paper has all the details on the process. Print samples and a hard copy of the paper are available at the show.

Because not all jobs are right for a digital press, A&V is also showing the Xeikon ThermoflexX 30, which features a rich mix of operator friendly features and controls. The ThermoflexX 30 is just one member of a line of state-of-the-art platemakers that enable customers to produce high-quality digital flexographic and letterpress plates at resolutions of up to 5080 dpi.

Flexographic printers can also see three different water-wash systems. The Ovit Flexomatic plate washer, the Orbital X Water Wash System, and WhirlAway, each of which help ensure the cleanliness critical to providing top quality flexo printing.

And finally, there's the AV Flexologic SAMM 800 semi-automatic mounting system, which takes over plate positioning to speed up workflows and help ensure consistently accurate plate mounting for both cylinders and sleeves.
