India’s largest flexible packaging convertor Uflex, purchases Edale 10 Colour FL3
Based in Noida, India and established in 1985, Uflex is India’s largest flexible packaging company. Delivering substantial manufacturing of packaging films and products and providing an end to end security solution to customers in over 140 countries.
As an existing Edale customer having already purchased an Edale around 6 years ago, Uflex have once again invested in Edale, this time with a 10 colour 350mm web width FL3 flexographic press including IST UV drying system including 3 hot air dryers, motorised print impression, anilox pressure and cross register control system, a rail mounted peel and reveal module and a vacuum delivery table.
Edale’s Sales & Marketing Director Darren Pickford, who works closely with Edale’s Agent Amitabh Luthra, MD of Printers Supply Company, comments:
“This new press order from Uflex is a testament to Edale’s continued commitment to the Indian market and is a valued addition to our growing machine install base within the region. We are proud that a company of the size and stature of Uflex values the support and quality of equipment offered by Edale, we are excited to continue working with them and look forward to being part of their continued growth”
Uflex acquired the FL3 to produce security labels and it was important to find a solution that would deliver sustained quality and ensure high reliability. Edale’s unique experience in vacuum collating conveyors was a huge benefit when making a selection.
To guarantee reliability and repeatability, Uflex has also selected to motorise the x and y register as well as all the pressure settings, which will allow the future upgrade to Edale’s AiiR technology. AiiR (autonomous inking, impression and print registration) uses precision camera technology to improve registration accuracy, while automated print pressure control reduces wastage and set-up times. By fully automating print and registration processes, the level of operator intervention can be reduced, leading to fewer errors and a more consistent, higher quality final product.
