Baldwin To Unveil Ultra-Wide FlexoCleanerBrush At SCE


St. Louis, Missouri based Baldwin Technology Company Inc. will showcase a new generation of innovative tech- nologies for optimized corrugated high-graphics pack- age printing at SuperCorrExpo, taking place August 8 to 12 in Orlando, Florida. Anchoring Baldwin’s booth (#2001) will be the new ultra-wide FlexoCleanerBrush (126 inch- es/3.2 meters), a fully automated, state-of-the-art flexo plate-cleaning system. Visitors also can learn more about Baldwin’s FlexoDry, an energy-efficient IR (infrared) drying solution, and its LED-UV curing technology, all of which increase print quality and productivity, with operator safety and sustainability in mind. The FlexoCleanerBrush is Baldwin’s flagship solution to enhance print quality and improve worker safety in cor- rugated printing. The system automatically removes dust and contamination from the plate in seconds during pro- duction, without stopping the press. It also performs full end-of-job plate cleaning and drying in fewer than four minutes, enabling increased uptime and sustainability. A carbon fiber core keeps even the ultra-wide FlexoClean- erBrush to a minimal weight, and ensures cleaning is sta- ble, uniform and consistent throughout the plate’s width. Because the system is fully automatic and spans the en- tire width of the plate cylinder, the FlexoCleanerBrush im- proves safety by eliminating routine operator contact with the machine, while also reducing the risk of cylinder nip injuries and contact with wash agents. Also on view in Baldwin’s booth, the FlexoDry is a ful- ly integrated IR drying system, specifically developed for corrugated flexo printing presses. It reduces energy con- sumption by up to 30 percent over standard IR dryers through patented Diamond IR™ lamps. The system deliv- ers improved drying results because of a unique optical design that produces higher intensity for enhanced color definition, and reduces or eliminates marking altogether, allowing for high-speed and full-confidence printing. Additionally, Baldwin will showcase LED-UV technolo- gy, designed by its AMS Spectral UV division for wide-for- mat flexo corrugated box printing. This technology offers more than a 60 percent reduction in power consumption compared to traditional UV systems—in an ultra-compact lamphead that fits at the end of the press or between print- ing units. Flexo inks, coatings and varnishes specifically formulated to cure when exposed to LED-UV light provide a high-value decorative solution, offering offset-like qual- ity and vibrant color, as well as full-gloss, spot and matte coating effects on a wide range of corrugated stocks. Plus, LED-UV curing can increase the throughput of the machine over water-based aqueous coatings that may re- quire slower press speeds to dry conventionally. The tech- nology provides instant on/off, speed-related power, min- imal heat, zero ozone and zone-width switching to further reduce energy consumption.
