At the heart of Codimag’s presses is Aniflo technology that offers the quality of offset, the productivity of flexo and the flexibility of digital.

By using an anilox inking system, problems usually associated with offset are eliminated: no ink/water balance issues thanks to waterless offset; no ink key settings; no ghosting. Combined with fast-set up, low plate and ink costs, a fully digital workflow and print speeds of up to 85m/min, CODIMAG’ Aniflo presses are an attractive alternative to both traditional flexo and digital printing.

Versatile press options

Codimag produces three presses based on Aniflo technology. The VIVA 340 Evolution press is a stand-alone option suitable for printers with offline finishing capabilities. The VIVA 340 and VIVA 420 presses offer the same features and capabilities in 340mm and 420mm widths and can be configured with inline finishing options that can include hot-foil, flatbed foil, fluted foil, flexo varnishing, lamination, screen printing and die-cutting.

A worldwide footprint

Codimag have a large base of machines installed all over the world. Codimag is able to sell directly or with its own agent network in many countries.

With 350 years of cumulated experience in the Codimag team and more than 450 Aniflo units installed worldwide, this technology offers a strong differentiation and a competitive advantage for the converters, thanks to offset quality, flexo productivity and digital flexibility.

“This technology can address the challenges faced by many markets in many countries. The tenacity of Marie-Audrey is a chance for Codimag and even more for our future customers, in France, Europe and Worldwide!” Benoit Demol concluded.

About Aniflo Technology

Aniflo combines offset quality, flexo productivity and digital flexibility. It features an offset unit, with offset plates and a simple anilox delivery system that brings a uniform ink amount across the web. With the lowest operational costs, Aniflo is an economical choice for high-definition quality short, medium and long runs on any commonly used substrate – filmic or paper. Plate costs and imaging times are very short: all plates for the press can be prepared within about 15 minutes. Because it is intermittent, fewer consumables are needed, making Aniflo suited even for very short work. The high-definition capability and superior stability means Aniflo can print in extended gamut, like digital machine, without the inconvenience of high ink costs, click charges or planned obsolescence.”
