OnyxRACE is our new Flexo CI Press as best fit for medium and long runs, providing the ultimate in sustainability and automation combined with great ease of use for the operator. Technological innovations are taken to the next step by enhancing performance in terms of versatility and sustainability.


  • The most productive: 600 mpm max printing speed, 1650 mm max material width, equipped with our Active Start, the best tech for automatic pressure setting and register setting.
  • The most sustainable and efficient: ESG oriented flexo machine thanks to the innovative Active Pack Technologies, the ultimate techs for energy saving and consumable material reduction. Active Pack enables savings up to 300k EUR per year for energy consumption and consumable material.
  • The most compact in the segment: Extremely minimal operating space and total footprint of less than 80 sqm, combining high performances with a limited space occupancy in than plant.
  • The most robust: Bounce Void technology makes the printing process very robust, minimizing vibration and guaranteeing valuable robustness over time.
  • The most versatile: printing with all type of substrares and inks type. Equippable with our Downstream Units (DSU) for special applications.
  • The easiest and safest to use: an operator-centered machine. The Dynamic Pack technologies help make the machine even more operator's friendly.
  • The most automated: set to reach new automation levels with SleeveBOT® technology, our patent robotic technology for automatic sleeve changeovers.

OnyxRACE: setting the pace for sustainable printing, a testament to robustness for value over time

OnyxRACE is available in two configurations: 8 and 10 colors, and with two different repeat ranges: one version features maximum print repeat of 850 mm, while the second version goes up to 1200 mm.


The most productive for medium and long runs, with a printing speed of up to 600 m/min and a maximum material width up to 1650 mm.


ESG-oriented flexo press: OnyxRACE's goal for full sustainability focuses on minimizing environmental impact with the Active Pack, which consists of several technologies. Active Pack enables savings up to 300k EUR per year for energy consumption and consumable material.


Equipped with the best technology on the market for job startup: Active Start, which takes less than 3 minutes for automatic pressure and register setting, generating less than 8 meters of material waste.


The function of optimizing energy consumption in the drying phase is later carried out by the Active Dry system: the drying power is adjusted according to the printing characteristics (ink coverage) previously identified by Active Start. The Active Dry enables saving up to 50% in energy consumption during drying phase.


The new Active Dry-T also manages to identify the ideal tunnel drying temperature by collecting information derived from the print set-up process, such as substrate type, thickness and width.


The Active Ink complements the Active Pack by allowing pumping cycles to be adjusted according to the printing characteristics identified by the Active Start enabling the reduction of solvent consumption by up to 40%.


 Attention to operator well-being and safety is then provided by the Dynamic Pack.


The most compact on the market for medium and long runs: extremely small operating space and total footprint of less than 80 sqm.  


The most robust thanks to Bounce Void technology, aimed at full control of vibrations during the printing process and ensuring consistently exceptional printing. It is our testament to robustness for value over time!


The most versatile, supporting multiple substrates types for a variety of end-use applications. Morevoer, the machine can be equipped with different configuration kits: Water based kit, Water+solvent based kit, Paper & Cartboard kit, Tropicalization kit, Aluminium kit, Altitude Kit.


The new OnyxRACE can be configured with the addition of a extensive range of downstream units (DSU) able to sustain different special applications and substrates: Our new different types of DSU: Roto, Flexo and Hybrid Roto+Flexo, leading to different types of finishings, such as funcional, embellishment, printing and adhesive.


The level of automation is sublimated by the SleeveBOT®, our robot for automatic sleeve changeover which stands out in the market thanks to our patented gripper system allowing adaptability to any sleeve size.
