Bondoufle, France, 15 September, 2017: Codimag (11C10) invites printers to experience the speed, quality and simplicity of its Aniflo label converting technology and pre-press workflow during Labelexpo – with options to arrange private trials on the company’s VIVA 340 Evolution press, in addition to public presentations, at the stand.
In the “AnifloLive Experience”, Codimag will demonstrate, in real time, the ability to print a label within 30 minutes of receiving the file. Printers may schedule an exclusive appointment to observe Codimag process their own PDF file in an automated workflow that includes colour management (using Esko Equinox software), colour proofing, plate-imaging, press makeready and printing.
Codimag’s Aniflo technology, featured on the VIVA 340 Evolution, combines offset quality, flexo simplicity and digital flexibility. Using waterless offset inks and plates, an Aniflo unit comprises an offset unit and a simple anilox delivery system that supplies a uniform ink amount across the web.
Those wishing to take part are advised to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. PDF files, to be sent by 17:00hrs CET on Friday 22nd September, should feature a minimum label size of 305mm x 305mm, with embedded images of minimum 300dpi and text outlined. Each participant will receive a bottle of French wine, and have the chance to win a special prize.
Benoit Demol, managing director, Codimag, comments: “Aniflo offers an end-to-end workflow with supporting software that enables a printer with even limited experience in offset to achieve precise, predictable results quickly and easily, and compete for short and medium run jobs. By staging the Codimag AnifloLive Experience, we intend to provide hard proof of this possibility, which is demonstrably benefiting label printing operations serving consumer goods markets worldwide.”
Aniflo’s high-definition, chemistry-free plates can be digitally imaged by CtP processors within three minutes for outstanding print quality on all commonly used label substrates. With fewer moving parts, and based on semi-rotary technology, Aniflo has low consumables costs and is easy to set up. The only part that needs changing is the plate, even for format alterations. Aniflo’s superior stability allows extended gamut printing, reproducing over 90 per cent of the PANTONE® Colour range without ink changes or consequential washing.
At Labelexpo, Codimag will unveil new enhancements to the Viva 340 Evolution. An improved human-machine interface transfers prepress data for label printing with minimal manual input in minutes. Advanced software allows automated register synchronisation and connectivity with elements in the customer’s IT environment, such as prepress solutions and ERP systems.
Codimag will also demonstrate its Viva 340 Combination press, a modular hybrid machine that can be configured according to customer needs. The Viva 340 offers integrated in-line finishing processes to enable added-value label production in a single-pass. The Viva 340 press demonstrated at Labelexpo will feature five Aniflo stations in combination with rotary screen, an enhanced flat-bed foil embossing combo unit, and flexo varnish. New features include a shorter matrix path to the rewinder, minimising the chance of web-breaks, and automated web guidance and camera inspection.
