SPGPrints (stand 4C20) will provide a video preview of its c that combines high-resolution digital capabilities with extensive pre-treatment and added value finishing processes, in a single pass, at up 70m/min or 2,980sqm/hr.
The 700mm-wide roll-to-roll press based on Archer technology features up to 10 inkjet positions in a central cylinder configuration, with CMYK plus white standard, using SPGPrints’ own inks that are optimized for the printhead and the machine’s treatment processes.
With maximum resolutions of 1200 DPI, PIKE 700 is claimed to print excellent vignettes while producing consistent color uniformity within 1.5 DeltaE, on both supported and unsupported paper and film materials up to 450 micron thickness. Wide substrate versatility is enhanced thanks to extensive in-line web-cleaning, corona treatment and flexo priming options. Furthermore, the optional integration of rotary screen printing units, seamlessly in-line, enables inclusion of high-impact, ‘look and feel’ effects.
SPGPrints demonstrates its new RotaPlate Screen cleaner, a device which automatically develops and dries all types of screens.
A new addition to the RotaMesh program is a 40-mesh re-imageable seamless nickel RotaMesh screen for glitter effects. Also new is a developer and washing system for imaging RotaPlate screens, providing fast, automated imaging with minimal manual input.
Also on the stand is the rotaLen 7511 direct CO2 laser engraving system for imaging rotary screens with resolutions up to 5080 DPI, and the variLex hybrid CTP processor digital imaging system for flexo, dry-offset, screen and letterpress plates.
