Marte 8 colors gearless

Born in 1975, Bfm – who celebrated his firts 40 years in 2015 – has been focusing from the early beginning on the innovation and on a wide production range; today the company keeps on his constant process of machines’ up grade and of continuous technical improvement, thanks also to the cooperation with important and well known partners .

For example, in the flexo printing machines field: starting from the first gearless machines, bfm is working together with Bosch Rexroth, world leader for the automation in the printing and converting markets; with Bosch were shared the initial decisions, about the automation platform.

The use of the axes control platform “Codesis for Printing”, combined with the digital drives IndraDrive, was the best option, within the tested ones, for the printing synchronism management. And the brushless motors “IndraDyn S” give the best performances, in setting precision and reliability.

The continuous improvement process, however, is never ending: every machine shows some improvement, coming from the market indications and the customers’ feedbacks. So, the last 8 colors Gearless flexo machine, mod. Marte, was provided with a new inspection system “full web” 100% and with an improved closed chamber doctor blade, with “easy hand” system for blade and gasket switch; of course, with the aim to speed up the job change with a reduced material waste.

All innovations are developed to follow up the last market trends: reduced consumption of materials and power – high efficiency in the jobs’ switch – top printing quality.

The Marte printer, before the last developments, was already provided with helpful features such as: own sequential split rolls of each printing deck at the stop of printing process,this system allows to unload the ink from the cliché before the machine stops, avoiding the deposit -formation that could alter the quality processing and require manual cleanings ; full motorized printing groups, with electronic control; quick change system of sleeves, plates and ceramic anilox, in the machine (CANTILEVER SYSTEM); automatic unwinder and rewinder – NON STOP – revolver type, with motorized loading/unloading equipment ; SMART system for the register setting at job switch.

The printer is supplied with an advanced automatic washing system for the printing groups, to allow the complete cleaning in about 10 minutes, using a small quantity of solvent.

In addition to the Gearless series of Central Impression machines, bfm can provide the customers with a wide range of geared machines: CI or stack, off line or in line, also combi or customized, from 1 to 10 colors.

Venus 6 colors gearless

6 colors with motorized printing groups and "sleeves change" in machine

The "Venus" is a rotative Flexo Printer of high precision with the characteristic of the central drum, that guarantees a good quality of printing even on very thin and elastic materials.
Primarily used for works 6+0, it allows to perform printing of quadricromie of high resolution with centesimal precisions of register.
It is mainly used for the printing of plastic materials: LDPE, HDPE, BOPP, PP, PVC.

The strong structure allows to use it also for the printing of paper, with a speed of production up to 300/350 mt/min.

All Models are composed with horizontal printing groups and Doctor Blade chambers completely motorized, that allow to perform all the regulations of the movements, also staying in front of the videocamera of printing control.
The translation of the anilox and portaclichè cylinders has been realized with stepping motors, steel prismatic guides and ballscrew.
Also the longitudinal-transversal registers have been motorized with stepping motors.
All the movements are checked through by the operator with the device "UFO" with a precision of 0,01 mms.

Each printing group is driven independently, and it is provided with electronic sequential split rolls at the stop of printing process and electric ink grinding unit.
They are provided with electric ink pumps circulation complete with stainless steel tanks.

The employed technical solutions of construction, and the "CANTILEVER SYSTEM" for the change of "SLEEVES" both anilox and portaclichè, have allowed to reduce drastically the changes of work .

The "Venus" Printer is completed as follow:

Automatic edge guide before printing stations
Automatic edge guide before re-winding stations
Heating system by electric batteries
Electric or pneumatic pumps for ink
Videocamera for printing process control
Chiller for temperature control of central drum

The "Venus" printer according to the specific applications, can be provided with the following accessories:

Inversion diagonal system (triangle) for 6+6 on 50% of material
Inversion diagonal system (triangle) external of the machine - for 3+3 on 100% of full material
Washing system for ceramic anilox & Doctor blade system ( automatic and/or semi-automatic)
Heating system by Gas, Gpl , Diathermic oil
Electronic Viscosimeters for solvent

On request possibility of printing repeat lenght from 500 to 1200 mm with Model VENUS PLUS
