Tresu announces sale of multiple-unit Flexo Innovator press to the lottery sector

Tresu announces the sale of a multiple unit Flexo Innovator flexo press to an international printer of lottery game cards. Lottery and games card printers have to meet a wide variety of regulations and print requirements for the growing number of games types around the world. Flexibility and versatility are major factors in this specialist application with widely varying run lengths, numbers of colours, coatings and finishing techniques needed in various combinations.

With its modular design, the Tresu Flexo Innovator handles water-based and UV inks, and may include variable printing and station-to-station drying systems, along with a range of finishing operations, in a single pass. Automated ink supply systems with sealed chamber doctor blades featuring TRESU’s pressure-control technology reduce waste and setup times, while ensuring print quality at speeds of up to 800m/min.

Additionally, the Flexo Innovator’s inline configuration facilitates the production of tamper-proof games cards with clear and coloured coatings, inkjet coding and marking, and the option for perforation, creasing, die-cutting, foiling and other game and security enhancements.

“The Tresu Flexo Innovator provides a strong combination of performance benefits to lottery game providers seeking efficient, productive solutions for developing and producing innovative games with complex features,” says Ronni Nielsen, vice-president, Tresu Solutions. “This latest sale is a further endorsement of the Flexo Innovator concept. Tresu has a 70 percent share of the global lottery and games card market and we are gratified that this sale continues to support our leadership position in this dynamic sector.”
