Bondoufle, France, 16 November, 2017: At Labelexpo Asia 2017,Codimag will show its Viva 340 Evolution on its stand (G50) featuring enhancements on its press based on the company’s Aniflo printing technology. There will also be regular live demonstrations and the possibility to arrange private trials.

Codimag’s Aniflo technology combines offset quality, flexo simplicity 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. High-definition plates can be imaged within three minutes, assuring fast setup times and outstanding quality on all commonly used label substrates. Aniflo’s superior stability allows expanded gamut printing, reaching over 90 per cent of the PMS colour book without ink changes or consequential washing.

Viva 340 Evolution, a dedicated Aniflo press, will feature advances in software, architecture and controls. A new human-machine interface enables transfer of prepress data to print a label with minimised manual input in minutes. New software features allow automated register synchronisation and connectivity with elements in the customer’s IT environment such as prepress solutions and ERP systems.

Private one-to-one trials are arranged on the Viva 340 Evolution for converters willing to have their own PDF files printed on the press in real production environment, using Esko Equinox imaging software to provide a real-time experience of the speed and efficiency of the complete workflow.

Pre-press equipment will be provided by its partner in waterless offset plate, Toray. The AnifloLive demonstrations will highlight the complete pre-press workflow with a Cron CTP offset plate imager and a processor to prepare the plates in live conditions.

Codimag will also share its booth with its long-term partner for UV drying systems, IST-Metz. This will be the opportunity to show the new air-cooled IST-Metz MBS7 LEDcure system that offers longer lamp lifetime, reduced energy consumption, elimination of ozone emissions, increased start-up speeds and compatibility with film as well as paper substrates. The MBS7 UV system is also equipped with the “Hot Swap” function that allows changes from conventional to LED lamps in just a few seconds.
