The TH 8130 is designed for screen printing and flexo printing onto flexible tubes or sleeves. The combination of two printing processes allows printers to take advantage of the strength of each printing process: flexo printing for half-tone printing of stunning photo-realistic images and screen printing for printing vibrant solids and pin sharp texts. Reliability and speed make the TH 8130 ideal for 24/7 production.
The machine stations are built around a 22-station heavy duty rotary indexing ring. Each of the station on the indexing ring has a station head that takes a mandrel. A station head has its own servomotor that rotates the mandrel.
The machine has eight printing station, each printing station can take a Flexo printing unit or a screen printing unit, and these units are interchangeable.
