The individual solution for every application
The COLOR-Print series with width variations in 520 mm, 720 mm and 760 mm can be configured exactly to your desired application purpose in the area of labels, folding boxes, continuous forms, mailings, sheet forms, security printing, package leaflets, sticky notes, general job printing or newspapers in the coldset procedure. This saves money and time for elaborate conversions later on, because your printing machine will be able to take on its allocated role in the product workflow from the beginning. The track speed in role-to-sheet are 250 m/min (820 feet/min), in role-to-folder is 300 m/min (985 feet/min) and in role-to-role 350 m/min (1,150 feet/min).
Impressive inking unit with AIC automatic ink control
The computer-controlled inking unit is specially designed for the versatility of production possibilities. Two ink application rollers and a combined ink/water roller as well as an ink circuit system for each printing tower ensure brilliant colour saturation. The automatic inking unit temperature control incl. ink fountain roller is the foundation for constant ink slide and ink vibrator adjustment. The automatic inking unit washer system integrated as a standard feature enhances ease of use and makes a quick order change possible. By default, the machine has automatic ink control (AIC) with a pneumatically operated ink vibrator. The individual ink keys are positioned centrally via a separate control panel.
Exchange of cassettes
A special cassette exchange system reduces setup times to a minimum. The 3-cylinder slide-in cassettes with plate, rubber and counter-pressure cylinders as well as the filing punching and lateral perforation cassettes can be easily exchanged. Thanks to the pneumatic/mechanical mounting method of the slide-in cassettes, a format change can be carried out in seconds, without the need for tools. A special aspect of this is that the format change is perfectly accurate, thanks to zero point positioning.
Flexo printing units and rotary die cutting systems
Of course flexo printing units can be integrated in the COLOR-PRINT. Generally these are used in the first position after the unrolling to apply an adhesive surface or opaque white, as well as in the last position for lacquering across the entire surface or in individual spots. Flexo printing units can be delivered both with printing plate seating as well as with sleeve cylinders. The last flexo printing unit is partially also used to administer glue to apply a laminate across the entire surface.
The COLOR-PRINT can be equipped with rotary die cutting systems. The high-precision rotary die cutting systems are usually fitted as bearer-to-bearer printing presses. Upon request, EDELMANN Printing Machines can also include OEM aggregates, working together with the client to select these. Special removal and collecting systems are available for through-cutting, particularly in ticket and cardboard box applications. Scrap web removal takes place either using a waste rewinder (max. 700 mm) or a web waste removal system available on the market that are integrated by EDELMANN Printing Machines on request.
Tool stations for job printing, labels, packaging and forms
Whether you are dealing with continuous forms with filing punching, edge punching, lateral and longitudinal perforation as well as zigzag-folding or self-adhesive labels with label die-cutter and web waste removal or brochure description with longitudinal and lateral fold – EDELMANN Printing Machines has the right solution for any application area. It is not particularly worth mentioning that a cross-cutter with and without strip cut-outs and rewinding with or without insetters is of course also offered. The receptacle holes and connections are already present ex works for all available options. This means that almost any conceivable option variation can be added later on.
In general, the COLOR-PRINT has three removal types, role-role with maximum 1,270 mm diameter, role-fold and role-sheet. However, versatile special applications require optional removal types, in particular the format-variable scissor-cutting cross-cutters for individual sheets of 4″-28″, DIN A4, DIN A5 or the non-stop small-role winder mechanism. Both versions, both role-sheet as well as the fully assembled small role, are offered by EDELMANN Printing Machines.
Almost unlimited application possibilities
The COLOR-PRINT type series, available in 520 mm, 720 mm or 760 mm widths, is suitable for practically anything produced off the role. The main applications are for medium-sized and higher print runs of 50,000 to 1,000,000 copies, with a 24“ print format. The straight web guide roll in the version with 3-cylinder printing unit inserts that permit the use of UV end drying, the COLOR-PRINT is also especially interesting for printing on coated paper and thus for general job printing. The machine has also already been sold in the book printing applications market.
