Optima2 is mainstream wide web printing press designed for high speed printing, fully automated and equipped with short run features. Is designed for WIDE WEB segment such as food packaging, frozen products, hygiene product packaging & diapers, paper cups and wrapping, paper and plastic bags…
Improve your change-over time and waste
The number one challenge for printers is short-runs. Therefore we designed Optima for easy changeovers. Optima is equipped with Smart Platforms, web is easily accessible at any point and mainly Optima is equipped with several automated features that minimize time and waste during change-overs.
Register & Impression setting
ARUN represents an unique off line solution which combines advantages of a plate mounter with fully automated device for plate topography & register measurement. The fully automated system in Optima2 flexographic printing press sets all active printing decks into impression and register in couple of minutes with zero ink and material waste.
Be sure you print with the best quality
Thinking about print quality, we had to place into right balance the following physical properties – mass (the more the better), rigidity (design which stands strong) and dumping properties (the right materials). The result of this effort is named Advanced Bounce Control and is the key factor to the highest print quality achieved by our printing presses.
Single block frame
Printing unit frames are key press parts developed and designed with great emphases on optimal dynamics, rigidity and damping. Printing unit frame consists of two cast-iron single-block side frames with inserted drum mounting where the complete side of the print module is cast, annealed, machined, painted and assembled as a whole. This concept is unique in wide-web flexographic printing presses, in combination with in-house production and quality control guarantees the maximum accuracy needed for high quality printing.
Advanced Bounce Control
Our state-of-the-art in-built Advanced Bounce Control system represents cutting-edge technology that reduces bouncing at high press speeds to optimise print quality when using HD plates. This advanced system combines elements within the printing process with brand new engineering and enhanced technical features. These include composite mandrels, single block cast iron print unit frames, innovative mandrel housings and a brand new sliding/positioning printing deck design.
Gain flexibility via future upgrades
We believe that printed package is not enough in the current world of packaging. Packaging needs more than just a good look. Therefore we developed a flexo press that is ready for implementation of in-line technologies that would bring additional added value to flexible packaging. Optimas modular design provides a maximum level of press customization to specific needs any time during press life time, not only during first order phase. It allows a flexible feedback to the current market demands and to implement in-line lamination, slitting, perforation, or upstream/downstream units with minimal additional costs. These units bring an additional added value to the flexible packaging, for example over printing varnish or a special coating.
Save money on running costs
When designing Optima we put great emphasis on saving running costs and operator friendliness. Optima cotains many smart features, which at the end boost overal efficiency. Unique Cartridge is an example of such approach. Ink Cartridge - the system offers printers a means of reducing ink costs on printing jobs where expensive spot colours, special effect and metallic formulations are required. These high pigment inks are expensive consumables and reducing ink volumes and residual waste permits printers to maintain profit margins while meeting end user price demands. The system is unique to SOMA and a first in CI press development and design SOMA.
