Flexo printing machines have become more popular in the last five years because they are more environmentally friendly. With a range of advanced features, it is the ideal choice for the production of business tickets and high-grade self-adhesive labels. It has a range of advanced features that make it ideal for producing commercial tickets and high-grade self-adhesive labels.

Features of DOMI flexo printing machines

  • Use of ceramic anilox rollers: One of its key features is the use of ceramic anilox rollers, which are essential for efficient ink transfer to ensure high-quality printing results. The unwind and rewind units are finely controlled by magnetic particle brakes and clutches, with the option of upgrading to a sophisticated Japanese Mitsubishi automatic tension controller for even greater accuracy. Each printing unit within the machine is capable of 360° circumferential adjustment, providing unrivaled flexibility and accuracy to the printing process.
  • Separate infrared drying unit: To increase productivity, each unit is equipped with a separate infrared drying unit to simplify the drying process and ensure fast production without compromising on quality.
  • Multi-functional die-cutting station: In addition, the machine includes a multifunctional die-cutting station that allows for simultaneous printing and die-cutting, thus optimizing workflow efficiency.

From feeding the cylinder material to the final reel, the Flexo printing equipment completes the entire process of printing, varnishing, infrared drying, laminating, and die-cutting in a seamlessly integrated manner. Over the past five years, the flexographic press has gained great popularity, largely due to its environmental friendliness.

Digital printing machine

The digital printing machine has been growing in popularity over the last two to three years, largely due to its excellent personalization features. In today’s market, there is a growing demand for tailor-made and unique prints, and the customization features offered by digital printing equipment are exactly what people are looking for.
