Standard technical characteristics

  • 24-station rotating turret with indexing movement;
  • hinged roller-holding heads for easy opening in order to facilitate plate and roller changing and cleaning;
  • accurate register for axial and peripheral plate adjustment; these can be carried out even when the machine is running;
  • rollers on ink fountain controlled by a 3-phase A.C. motor, with frequency converter, in order to ensure adjustment of a precise quantity of ink;
  • all the gears have inclined teeth to ensure a positive control and avoid shadows on the decoration;
  • central printing drum with ceramic coating;
  • 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;
  • lacquering unit;
  • pre-starter device for containers during printing to control rotation speed;
  • 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 loading and unloading devices;
  • flame pre-treatment with electronic flame detection;
  • on-mandrel drying of print and lacquer through UV lamp with electronic control.

Optional Devices

  • connection to automatic feeding systems, i.e.: – pin accumulator; – ODT device;
  • electronic pre-treatment;
  • dust cleaner and static electricity remover;
  • device for lacquer automatic feeding with control of temperature and viscosity;
  • hot-air blower for matt lacquers;
  • remote technical assistance;
  • screw-on capping device;
  • quick release mandrels which do not require the use of tooling;
  • additional printing head (device TOI) for “out of machine” change-over.
