Codimag demonstrates enhanced Viva 340 presses


The Viva 340 offers integrated inline finishing processes to enable added-value label production in a single-pass.

Codimag is demonstrating its enhanced Viva 340 presses based on Aniflo unique printing technology. Featuring an offset unit and plates plus simple anilox delivery system, Aniflo delivers high definition, uniform web coverage, expanded gamut printing and fast imaging/setup times. The Viva 340 Evolution press features HMI advances that minimize manual input, automatic register synchronization and enhanced connectivity with elements in the IT environment.

For high sophisication, Viva 340 combination presses allow integration of rotary screen, flatbed foil embossing and flexo varnishing with LED UV curing. Private trials are available.

Private one-on-one trials are available on the Viva 340 Evolution for converters willing to have their own PDF files printed on the press in real production environment, using Esko Equinox imaging software to provide a real-time experience of the speed and efficiency of the complete workflow.

Furthermore, live demonstrations of the Viva 340 combination press, a modular machine that can be configured according to customer needs, are also taking place. The Viva 340 offers integrated inline finishing processes to enable added-value label production in a single-pass. The Viva 340 press on display features five Aniflo positions in combination with rotary screen, enhanced flat-bed foil embossing combo unit and flexo varnish. New features include a shorter matrix path to the rewinder, minimizing change of web-breaks, and automated web guidance and camera inspection.

The Viva 340 combination press has also been shown with the new air-cooled IST-Metz MBS LEDcure system that offers longer lamp lifetime, reduced energy consumption, elimination of ozone emissions, increased start-up speeds and compatibility with film and paper substrates.

Aniflo combines offset quality, flexo simplicity and digital flexibility. It features an offset unit with offset plates and a simple anilox delivery system that brings a uniform ink amount across the web. With low operational costs, Aniflo is an economical choice for high-definition quality short and medium runs on any commonly used label substrate – filmic or paper. Plate costs and imaging times are very short, as well.
