The AMACO rotary printer R400 is designed to print on high speed packaging machines.
The rotary printer is powered by an electronic controlled stepper motor. The speed of the print cylinder is synchronised with the web speed by means of an incremental revolution counter. So even different web speeds do not influence the superior print quality.
During the standstill of the packaging machine the stereo picks up the ink from the ink unit. Printing is done while the web moves through the printer. The Photopolymer stereo sticks to the print cylinder magnetically, therefore easy to exchange. A diaphragm pump keeps the ink recirculating. Parameters for the operation of the printer are put in by a laptop, so they can be checked at any time.
