The new Impact Fusion-F system provides a unique flexibility of choice in consumables thanks to separate water and solvent supply in both Coldset and Heatset applications. Quicker and more precise cloth feeding contributes to reducing waste and optimizing the use of consumables. Improved and more flexible solvent distribution ensures a precise dosage, which is vital for quick and efficient cleaning. The Fusion-F blanket cleaning system offers multi-position, state-of-the-art technology as a precise and economical method for cleaning one or two blankets with a minimum of effort and cleaning agent. The combination of simple design, high reliability and efficiency makes the system ideal for Newspaper and Semi-commercial presses. Baldwins global approach to product development ensures that local variations and demands are always taken into careful consideration.
The FlexoCleanPick is a compact cleaning unit designed to optimize the quality and productivity of flexographic direct print on corrugated board. By wiping with “kiss touching” over the plate, the system keeps the image areas of the plates/stereos clean, paper dust and debris will be picked up and the risk of “hickies” is minimized.
With the Flexo Clean Pick there are no stoppages for plate cleaning required, since it allows to print while cleaning. No waste is created during that process.
Fluid supply is available for cleaning of plates with higher effectivity if required.
To protect the cleaning head from damages by jammed boards on the cylinder, a special break away design of the head is implemented (patent pending).
With todays demand for higher quality Flexographic printing in corrugated packaging, the need to maintain clean plates throughout the printing process has dramatically increased. Packaging buyers are demanding more sophisticated products with higher quality printing from their Flexo printers. Using the knowledge acquired as a leader in Automated Blanket Cleaning Technology for 50 years, Baldwin has developed a unique patented Automatic Plate Cleaning System that enhances print quality by delivering clean and dry plates automatically after each cleaning cycle.
The FlexoCleanerBrush performs automatic cleaning in under 4 minutes. The Cleaning process can be started at any time during or at the end of a print job, during which the press remains closed and coupled.
After the cleaning and drying process is complete, the print run can be restarted or the plates can be removed from the press and stored on the shelf, and no additional manual cleaning or drying is required.
