VRDA Flying Flexographic Imprinter
The VRDA Flying Flexographic Imprinter is ideal for quick version changes such as masthead or dealer listing changes via the flexographic printing method in-line with rotogravure printed materials. Servomotor drives accelerate the incoming plate cylinder into speed match and register with the web before our unique control system changes printing sides with virtually no lost copies. Impression and inking nips are adjusted independently for precise, repeatable set-up. Faustels unique deck lock-down system allows on-the-fly ink and impression adjustment while still maintaining complete rigidity and anti-bounce properties. Available for aqueous or solvent-base inks. Convection dryers also available.

Flexomatic Variable Repeat Flexographic Register Printer/Coater
The Faustel Flexomatic Variable Repeat Flexographic Register Printer/Coater can be used as a flexographic printer or flexographic coater. Because of the ease of changing both plate cylinders and anilox rollers that is a key feature of the machine, it can even switch back and forth between these two applications. It is available for solvent, aqueous, or radiation curable inks and coatings. It can apply overcoats or in-register spot coats or flexographic printing. It is ideal for variable repeat (cut-off) applications and can be built to any width.
- Used with ink or coating
- Stand-alone drive and controls
- Servo-drive printing cylinder registration control
- Fixed or variable repeat
- UV or EB curing configuration
Variable Repeat Gravure Printer/Coater
The variable repeat gravure printer/coater is designed to apply a coating in pattern form and in-register with a pre-printed substrate. Gravure cylinder diameter can be changed to accommodate different print lengths. Supplied with coating pan and trailing doctor blade for best performance with pattern engraved gravure coating cylinder. A servomotor drive system responds to feedback detecting position of pre-printed image to keep coating in close register throughout run. Can be supplied in-line with printing or die-cutting equipment, or as a stand-alone coating line.
