Daco FLX350 1 Colour Flexographic Label Press


The Daco FLX350 flexo label press is a compact, versatile converting line for labels.   The machine is available for flexo printing applications or the converting of media from pre-printed digital, inkjet, flexo and gravure printing presses.

Easily apply spot or flood coat UV varnishes, the ‘FLX350’ can also be configured with an optional laminating station to give ultimate flexibility for digital finishing applications.

The flexo print/coating station utilises the latest in servo drive technology and with software written by Daco allows for quick and easy setup.  With the environment and paper costs in mind, the print to die register is accomplished with the use of minimal substrate.

Even with the machines compact size, the FLX350 has a 700mm (27.5”) unwind and rewind with automatic tension control ensuring that roll changes are kept to a minimum.  A smaller optional rewind is also available for digital converting and plain label / slitter rewinding functions.

The flexibility of the ‘FLX350’ platform enables a converting line to be configured for most applications.
