SOLEC, POLAND—Mondi Packaging Solec (formerly Frantschach Flexible Packaging Poland) added a new flexible packaging line at its Solec facilities. The €4.5m investment project includes a new Rotomec RS 4004 rotogravure printing press and a Titan SR7 slitter rewinder from Bobst Group as well as a substantial post-burner system for solvent waste.
"The new Rotomec RS 4004 press was chosen in preference to all other equipment currently available in gravure printing, as the perfect solution to meet Mondi Packaging’s specific requirements in short run and high quality gravure printing for flexible packaging substrates", explained Mondi’s managing director Tomasz Krogulski. "This is our first investment in Rotomec gravure printing technology and it followed a successful demonstration of the press last year in the Technology Center at Rotomec’s facilities in Italy."
The Rotomec RS 4004 press reportedly solves the problem of trolley make-ready time with automatic changeover activated simultaneously on all units completed in two minutes. Washing of the printing cylinders and cartridges is performed off-line, close to the press and is much simplified by the fact that the stainless steel trolleys can be completely enclosed inside the washing machine for cleaning. The washing machine is specifically designed for the simultaneous washing of inking parts and the printing cylinder: no parts have to be removed from the trolley. Press design reportedly also allows complete job changeover in less than 20 minutes (excluding colour matching).
