Rail-Mounted Rotary Screen Unit Enhances Capabilities of OMET X6
OMET specializes in on-demand solutions suitable for customers’ needs in order to improve their efficiency and their competitiveness. One example is the possibility of positioning the rotary screen-printing unit on a rail instead of placing it on the printing station. This avoids losing one flexo station and helps to save space.
Printers that produce complex labels need to use all of the colors provided in the machine configuration, adding the screen-printing unit as an additional printing group. By positioning it on a rail, printers can avoid the loss of a station that can be used for flexo printing. Additionally, less space is required in the production workshop because there is no extra length required.
The silk screen printing group is completely independent, both electronically and drive-wise. It has an integrated chilled impression cylinder and an independent UV lamp. It can be moved anywhere on the rail system inside the machinery’s track, including before or after other finishing units, such as hot foil or cold foil. Thanks to a special rail system, the unit can easily be moved from one position to another just by sliding it and without removing it from the machine.
This is just an example of a creative solution developed in collaboration with a client to solve specific needs with the aim of being more competitive. Machinery designed with personalized configurations lead to strong advantages for printers in such a competitive market.
