HELIOSTAR II A gravure printing presses
With the new HELIOSTAR II A, W&H extends its range of gravure printing presses for the broad spectrum of packaging films. The new, easy-to-operate and extremely cost-efficient gravure printing press series is designed for the use of axial and hollow cylinders and can be configured with up to 12 printing units. In the width range of 1000 – 1300 mm and print length range of 450 – 920 mm, the requirements for the printing of usual packaging films were systematically met. The efficient inking and drying systems are designed for maximum printing speeds of 400 m/min. As energy carriers, thermal oil, hot steam and electric power can be used. The job changeover technology enables complete changing of the slide-in carts with impression cylinder, ink supply and inking roll as well as separate changing of the impression cylinders without an ink change. The unwind and rewind units are designed for maximum winding diameters of 800 or 1000 mm.
