The modular concept of the 20SIX allows the machine to be customized to specific requirements. If, for example, more drying capacity is required for jobs with a high level of ink coverage at high speeds, an additional drying module can be installed on the bridge.
The design of the printing frames combines extreme rigidity with perfect ease of operation. On the one hand, it enables high production speeds even with the most delicate graphics, and, on the other hand, effortless sleeve, intermediate mandrel and anilox sleeve changeovers through the frame 'window'. Optional auxiliary equipment helps to facilitate the handling of large format cylinders and sleeves.
All the components of the 20SIX platform involved in printing are designed for precision in the µm range. Thanks to servo drive technology and high-precision mechanical guides, the 20SIX presses can handle impression adjustment, i.e. the setting of the anilox roller relative to the plate cylinder and of the plate cylinder to the substrate, with a resolution of 1 µm. Superior anti-vibration properties guarantee process consistency across all run lengths and production speeds.
The automatic shafted duplex winders enable to carry out a fully automatic bi-directional reel splice at maximum machine speed. The efficient technical solutions that optimize the use and recovery of electrical power enable an important reduction in the level of energy consumption.
