AMECO Rotogravure Proofing Press

Product Description

Using small quantities of standard press inks and substrates of proofer both checks the cylinder engraving quality and the same time produces a representative print to submit to the customer for approval before making the print run. Range of press sizes available to suit every sector of the gravure printing industry from narrow web security printing through packaging printing to wide web decorative and publication printing.
All presses are designed with long term reliability and safety factors being given a high priority. Numerous options are available to both enhance print quality and increase productivity.
Product Features

Versatility

Wide range of application from max. 1500 mm proofing length and max. 1000 mm printing face width machine to max. 6000 mm proofing length and 4200 mm printing face width machine. Designed for proofing non-shafted cylinders. Kit available as option for cone adapters.

High Precision

Strong construction using high precision mechanical components as well as high end suppliers for operational reliability, high precision proofing process and low cost maintenance.

Quality

Use of high end hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical components in order not to compromise quality and reliability.

Automatic Press setting system for ease of operation and repeatability. Central control of automatic press setting is available if machine is interfaced with the cylinder production control system.

  • Hydraulic drives: All linear and rotary drives on the machines are hydraulically powered. The hydraulics are integrated with the PLC controls through a series of relays and proportional valves.
  • Shafted & Sleeve Cylinders: Presses can be constructed for handling shafted cylinders, sleeve cylinders or both.
  • Integrated Cylinder Cleaning: Both shafted and sleeve cylinders are rotated by and integrated hydraulic Motor
  • Automated Pre-Setting: These systems have been developed to assist in achieving standardization/repeatability of proof print quality. By programming the machine to make all the calculations for the various press settings for different sizes of engraved cylinders, the individual press operators” personal interpretation of these required values is eliminated.
  • Electro Static Assist: This system is available to customers proofing on paper who wish to reduce or eliminate the effects of “missing dots” when printing on non-calendered surfaces.
  • Common Features: PLC Control System, EU Safety Compliant
