Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica is launching the Evo XC, a new high performance compact CI flexo press, to its line of Evo models.

Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica has introduced a new high performance compact CI flexo press – the Evo XC – to its line of Evo models. The eight-colour press boasts one of the smallest footprints in the industry and is available in two different versions with a maximum repeat length of up to 850 mm and printing speeds up to 400 m/min.

“We developed the Evo XC to enable efficient printing with environment-friendly water-based inks not only on paper, but also on plastic films. This small-sized machine can be an additional press to an existing wide-web machine converter in order to achieve a new level of cost-efficiency,” says Preston Neetzel, sales director-flexo of the Web & Specialty Press Division at Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica.

The Evo XC flexo press features: A new intelligent HMI with 24-inch touchscreens for job data input and control of the press functions; a WashTronic system designed to optimize the inking supply and allow the ink to be changed more quickly; PrintTronic automatic impression settings to control print impression positions with less material waste and increased production uptime; and a doctor blade chamber.
