K Printing Proofer

This proofer features interchangeable heads for maximum flexibility. High-quality proofs using gravure, gravure offset or flexographic inks are produced instantly using the K Printing Proofer. Featuring electronically engraved printing plates and variable printing speeds of up to 40m/min, this is an essential tool for all those involved in the manufacture or use of liquid inks. It is ideal for R&D and computer color matching data, quality control and presentation samples. The K Printing Proofer is very easy to clean as all parts are solvent-resistant.

Features

  • Variable printing speeds of up to 40 meters per minute enable the use of press viscosity inks
  • Any flexible substrate can be printed or laminated
  • Excellent printability is ensured with a fine micrometer control
  • Multiple inks may be printed simultaneously for comparison purposes
  • Very easy to operate and only occupies a benchtop space of 15.7x19.7''/40x50cm

Gravure

Ink is transferred from an electronically engraved printing plate directly onto the substrate, which is attached to the rubber impression roller. Doctor blade and roller adjustments are made via micrometers, allowing repeatable settings for future tests.

Flexo

Using the flexo head, ink is transferred from the printing plate to a plain stereo roller and then onto the substrate. Adjustments are made by micrometers. Plain or step wedge plates are available, corresponding to the various densities required for flexo printing.

Gravure Offset

The flexo head is employed and fitted with a plain rubber roller to transfer ink from the plate to the substrate. A unit supplied with the flexo head can therefore be used for both techniques, with the possible addition of an alternative stereo/offset roller and printing plate, if required.

Laminating

Both wet and dry laminated samples can be produced on the machine, using the gravure head with K-Lam laminating accessories.
