Standard technical characteristics

  • 8-station rotating turret with indexing movement;
  • hinged roller-holding heads for easy opening in order to facilitate plate changing and plate and roller cleaning;
  • accurate register for axial and peripheral plate adjustment; these can be carried out even when the machine is running;
  • fine adjustment for tilting the printing head in accordance with the taper of the cups; fully automated by control motors;
  • roller on ink fountain controlled by a 3-phase A.C. motor with frequency converter and electro-magnetic clutch in order to ensure the adjustment of a precise quantity of ink;
  • all the gears have inclined teeth to ensure a positive control and avoid shadows on the decoration;
  • electropneumatic device for printing head lifting to prevent printing on the mandrel when a container does not come into printing position (“no container – no printing” device); another device is activated together with “no container – no printing” device, this device is called “no container – no inking” and it disconnects all form rollers from their plates in order to avoid an excess of ink on the container printed just after an empty mandrel;
  • pre-starter device for the container during printing; the same device also checks the rotation speed;
  • plate-holding rollers with mechanical clamping;
  • central printing drum with ceramic coating;
  • electronic synchronism (electric shaft) between brushless motor for indexing turret driving and brushless  motor for Printing head control;
  • control of all machine and accessory functions by a PLC with digital Bus Field system;
  • speed variator with 3-phase motor and electronic control of number of revolutions by inverter;
  • automatic feeding device (denester) with overhead inclined shelf;
  • restacking unit with mechanical piece-counter;
  • flame pre-treatment with electronic flame detection;
  • UV drying with electronic control.

Optional Devices

  • electronic pre-treatment;
  • dust cleaner and static electricity remover;
  • electronic piece-counter;
  • magnetic plate-holding rollers;
  • remote technical assistance.
