AB Graphic (stand 6A37) will present its new flatbed screen printing unit for the Digicon Series 3, with a ‘significantly’ increased running speed.
The new module has full rotary web motion whilst still using a flatbed screen. The quality of UV curing is said to be improved by the rotary web motion, ensuring consistency along the whole web. Motorized lateral and skew adjustments for the screen image position, plus on-the-run servo adjustment of the squeegee and scraper position, are said to make for easier set-up. The physical size of the module has been reduced by over 20%, while the repeat area has increased to 410mm in the web direction, making it compatible with the Big Foot 50 hot foil stamping unit. A chill roller option is avaialble for delicate substrates. Also new is in-line integration of a Digicon with nonstop turret rewinder with 100% camera inspection and workflow link.
