Highly flexible, fully customisable press for high volume runs

The FL5 + RDC is a high productivity printing and converting system for cartons, scratch cards and labels where there are infrequent job changes.

The fully servo driven system allows for easy and repeatable setups in both the printing and converting sections. The rotary die-cutting technology (RDC enables high speed production of both sheets and die-cut product whilst maintaining the versatility of a one pass production).

Edale is open and willing to work with customers to customise the configuration to meet your exact requirements, whether this be a change to a single module or the complete line. Our modular design and flexibility allows for many additional features, including but not limited to: laminating, cold foiling, hot foiling, screen, reverse print, cut to sheet or reel to reel configurations. This flexibility means that the FL5 + RDC can be configured for a wide range of applications such as: single pass cartons, single pass scratch cards, paper cups, sleeves and much more. Single pass production significantly reduces work in progress, number of operators, space requirement, waste and delivery times whilst also increasing overall efficiency of traditional multi pass production methods.

The FL5 + RDC gives you:
  • Increased productivity
  • Single pass production
  • Modular design- allows for future
  • Full servo driven technology and full motorised adjustment allows quick and repeatable set up
  • Autonomous closed loop register maintains accurate registration in both x and y directions reducing the need for operator intervention
  • Advanced HMI gives unlimited job storage function allowing for detailed job data to be used for fast and accurate job set-up
  • The rail system allows for additional options such as laminating, reverse print, foiling and screen to be easily moved between print units.

Three Gold Awards in a row

Our customer iTek Packz is known for its awards for Excellence in Flexography and Innovation, and for the third-consecutive year running has been awarded gold for Flexography, Narrow Web and they also received the highly acclaimed ‘Best in Show Award.’

They have been given high praise from the FTA judges for their winning entry, for Narrow Web, process, paperboard, which was a vibrant soap carton. The judges stated: “Lots of action in the carton, and it couldn’t have been executed better. Great screen work, great trap, and great register. The printer’s use of gold cold foil worked out very well. And the overprint varnish textures add measurable diversity and depth.”

iTek Packz also received a silver award for its narrow web, process, metalized for their production of a highly embellished, brandy box. The judges commented that it was flawlessly executed.   All these award-winning cartons were run on an Edale Press.

iTek Packz commented: “We are very proud that for the third year running, we have been recognised by the FTA. To receive the ‘Best in Show’ and Gold and Silver Awards has been a great honour for our business.
Our Best in Show carton entry was produced for a customer who wanted 6-7 colours, gold matte foil, and varnish and other effects. We are delighted to have achieved the quality required using our technology and print capabilities, which in our opinion is the best in the industry.”
