Onyx Stack Gearless

The gearless central impression flexographic press ONYX represents a great success for Uteco as it features excellent printing quality, great ease of operation and very quick job changes. Uteco’s philosophy of direct coupling of the CI and plate cylinder motors continues to provide ideal printing quality in the ONYX model with the integrated electronic servo system.

Furthermore ONYX features a very simple and quick sleeve change system for both the plate and the anilox sleeves. ONYX can be supplied in three different models:

  • Press reaches a maximum printing speed of 400 m/min (1312 fpm).
  • “Prismatic System” allows for quick sleeve changes.
  • Direct drive of plate sleeve mandrels and CI drum (gearless technology) and digital CT net guarantees a high register quality.
  • Automatic wash–up system.
  • Can be configured with inline flexo or gravure units for special lacquering and coating or inline lamination.
  • Large printing repeat model available.
