The G-Grafix Flexo Folder Gluer was designed for sophistication and simplicity. This open and close machine offers versatility in both size and print. With features like PC-based computer controls with remote diagnostics and backwards compatible controls, the G-Grafix FFG is ready to increase efficiency and production for your line. Single pass inside and outside printing can be achieved with the G-Grafix FFG with the addition of one or multiple top-printing print units. The G-Grafix FFG is available in three sizes:
■ 9.24 G-Grafix FFG – 950 mm x 2440 mm (37.5" x 96")
■ 12.29 G-Grafix FFG – 1270 mm x 2870 mm (50” x 113”)
■ 16.32 G-Grafix FFG – 1676 mm x 3175 mm (66" x 125")
The TwinBox Slitter is an ancillary machine that can be added inline with the G-Grafix FFG. After a flexo folder gluer produces a 2-up corrugated regular slotted (RSC) or half-slotted container (HSC), the Twin Box Slitter cuts the finished product by slitting it down the middle, creating two boxes out of one fed sheet. Once the boxes are separated, they are ready to be bundled. This process allows manufacturers with a mid-sized BW Papersystems also offers a true mini flexo folder gluer for effective production of small boxes.
The 6.18 MiniPro FFG has been designed to minimise machine stops for order change, by limiting the time needed to printing plate change over.
The Corrusleeve® system avoids the need of opening and closing the line to change the printing plate, in total safety for operators.
Real Servo Drive technology allows for excellent printing register, slotting and die-cutting. The MiniPro FFG features also, as an option, an inline bottom printing unit, which makes this machine one of the only converting lines of its size that can print on both sides of the sheet in one pass.
