Onyx 808

The ONYX central impression flexographic printing press represents Uteco’s state of the art offering to the printing industry.  Equipped with Direct Drive Evo® technology, it features unmatchable print quality, easy operation and extremely fast job changes.

To ensure optimum dot quality, Uteco developed Direct Drive Evo® technology, our true, patent protected, direct drive technology.  The CI drum and the plate sleeve mandrels are flanged directly into their drive motors ensuring that dot quality is not compromised.  PCT® and PTC® technologies are used to enhance print operation during press operation.

The new ONYX series of presses feature Uteco’s latest hardware and software developments that automatically set print register and printing pressures at job start reducing both waste and changeover times, ensuring optimum press performance and maximum return on investment.

With its newly designed “total capture” CI section the ONYX 808 represents the best quality to price ratio available in gearless flexo technology for the flexible packaging market. The press can be supplied in varying configurations; with flexo or gravure in-line units for additional front /back colors, for varnish/lacquers, and or for various types of coatings including adhesives for in-line lamination.
