Gearless technology in 10-colour press boosts production.
The Theorema 10 Stealth Gearless press is faster, at up to 350 metre/minute, than its eight-colour predecessor and offers advanced electronic features, with highly accurate registration and superior print quality, rivalling results previously only achievable by the rotagravure process.
The new press uses an innovative, electronically controlled gearless system that replaces gears with direct motion transmission to the printing cylinder, anilox and central drum--featuring A/C motors with independently adjusted digital drives.
Print repeats can be electronically adjusted by up to +/- 2%, without modifying the sleeve diameter. Repetition of parameters for memorised jobs, automatic printing deck positioning and register adjustment have helped boost production efficiency at the Lincoln plant. Waste at start-up has been minimised, while machine set-up and job changeover times have been reduced.
Much of the work created on the press is for the competitive frozen food industry, which requires overlaying of line and process colour to give perfect depth of colour.
