Gravure Flexographic Systems

Dri-Tec’s inline convertible Gravure/Flex stations are engineered to compliment and increase production versatility with new or existing companion equipment while taking up a minimum of floor space.

Multi-Function Production Requirements

These field proven inline systems precisely match the existing control parameters of the press and are capable of handling all multi-function production requirements which include registration, tensions, velocity, position and temperature control etc.  

Flexo or Gravure Printing

The Gravure/Flex station can be configured for either flexo or gravure printing and can even be customized for register cold seal applications.  The system also provides the advantages of online communications and modem diagnostics for speed of life customer service response time.

Combining Processes

This inline Gravure/Flex station is designed to print the back side of the primary web from the printing press in precise register with the preprint and finally deliver the web back to the companion equipment’s rewind unit. By combining these processes costly out of line individual processing is avoided and higher more efficient production is achieved.
