Flexographic Printing Presses, Equipment, Machines
Flexo presses are letter press printing processing equipment that can print on plastic, acetate film, foil, brown paper, and other materials that are commonly used in packaging. Flexible printing plates made of rubber or plastic are inked with fast-drying inks and rotated on a cylinder, which then transfers a slightly raised image onto the substrate material. This is an efficient, high-speed process.
We provide flexographic printing presses and related equipment from leading manufacturers such as Soma printing presses, and have done so for over 20 years. If you require flexographic machines for inline printing, roll-to-roll printing, single and dual side printing, one color printing, eight or ten color printing, central impressions, stacked printing, or coating and laminating for converting, we can help you source the equipment you need. We serve as a reliable, single point of contact that streamlines the sourcing and purchasing process for our clients in the printing industry. We’re here to help you save time and money by helping you get the new and used flex presses you require with less hassle.
Why Upgrade Your Flexo Presses?
We help many of our clients upgrade their flex printing presses by giving them an easy way to sell their old model and then source an upgraded piece of equipment, whether new or used. We sell used equipment so you can upgrade for less cost. We can also provide late models as an upgrade. In some cases, it’s possible to sell two older model flexographic printing presses to purchase a newer, more advanced flexographic press that outputs at greater speed and produces higher quality products. The elimination of two machines by installing one will also reduce manpower cost, eliminating one production team and reducing the size of the other team and the new press as well. Upgrading an older flexographic machine in this way also means less set up time and maintenance. As a result, you save time, reduce labor costs and downtime, and improve your productivity.
Reducing your set up time is especially important in today’s printing industry. Your customers aren’t looking for high quantity inventory stock on a longer run. Instead, printing runs are shorter and you need to change jobs more often. When set up time takes less than thirty minutes on a new or upgraded flexographic machine, it enables you to produce more and in higher quality. If your current flexographic presses take an hour or two to set up, you’re not staying competitive or producing as much as you could be. This reduced production causes an increased labor cost.
