Renato Lusa Srl invests in two Uteco rotogravure machines, looking to the future


Renato Lusa Srl is an italian company that, for over fifty years, has been working successfully in production, processing, and marketing of flexible food packaging. Thanks to the passion and competence of the Lusa Family, the company grew rapidly, becoming one of the most successful companies in its field, in Italy and abroad.

Always aware of the new market demands, Renato Lusa Srl believes in the importance of investing in ever-new technologies, to offer its customers innovative and advanced solutions, with a particolar attention to the environment.

The Company has been successfully collaborating with Uteco Converting Spa for a long time. After the positive experience with the various flexo machine purchased over the years (the latest was recently purchased), coating & laminators and rotogravure “E-Press 8 colors”, successfully installed in 2006, Renato Lusa Srl recently aquired two new generation 10-color rotogravure machines:  Next 450, also suitable for water-based inks, and NXS 300, the new born machine in Uteco.

Introduced to the market during the last Uteco open House held in September, the NXS 300 is a modular and super-compact narrow-web machine, suitable for short runs. This machine prints up to 300 m/min and is chatacterized by the innovative and efficient “Cube®" drying system, that allows excellent performances combined with low noise and Energy saving.

The machine is equipped with the frontal "Dual trolley", a new and versatile solution that allows extremely fast job changing . With this system you can change the cylinder, the inking system, or both at the same time. These solutions include the automatic positioning of the doctor blade and ink tray too.

The Uteco technology will allow Renato Lusa Srl to look to the future, serving the growing demands of the market, with increasing quality, versatility and efficiency. The rotogravure Next 450, with the possibility of using new water-based inks, will also provide technical and environmentally-friendly solutions.

Both machines will be installed soon, in a new ultra-modern facility, totally built in 4.0 key.
