Edale to introduce new flexo press and gearless print head


UK-based Edale (stand 7M60) will showcase two new products: the FL-350, a versatile label, film and ticket printing flexo press, and a new gearless flexo print head aimed at the mid-web packaging printer. Edale will be staging live demonstrations of the FL-350 on each day of the show. The new machine utilizes the latest servo technology and is claimed to achieve high print quality whilst reducing job change times and set up wastage. It also employs Edale’s Pit Stop Color Change system, enabling operators to complete a full color change in less than 1.5 minutes per station. The FL-350 has a 350mm web width, substrate capacity from 30 to 450 microns and a maximum speed of 200m/min, making it a high performer in all senses of the word. Demonstrations of the FL-350 flexo press will run everyday at the Edale stand.

Although showcasing these two new products at the event, there are other machines in the range that Edale will not be exhibiting this time, but can be viewed at anytime at their showroom in Hampshire, UK. The new showroom and factory facility boasts an Alpha compact press, the modular Beta and the fully servo driven Gamma machine as well as the Lambda, VLS-650 (variable length sheeter) and FDC-510 (flatbed die cutter) converting lines.
