Chroma EVO for Rigid Desborough


One of the UK’s largest independent box and container manufacturers continues to invest in the latest converting equipment. In November 2015 the new Chroma EVO 1700 was installed to feed an automatic flatbed die cutter Bobst SPO 1600. Rigid was looking for a simple machine to feed a flatbed die cutter, with state-of-the-art technology, at a good price. The Chroma EVO, Celmacch’s entry-level flexo printer, is definitely the best solution for a 2-color, high-graphics printer since it is able to deliver top technology and low ownership cost.

Chroma Evo embodies the perfect union of quality, superior engineering technology, and affordable price, qualities that have been stirring the interest of big multinational companies and satisfying the needs of smaller firms looking for an affordable investment. Chroma EVO is equipped with advanced technology, but at the same time, is very user friendly and intuitive for the operator.

Chroma EVO provides all the devices necessary for high graphics printing!

The line is equipped with fully-independent servo drives, a direct drive feeder driven by rolls and the new upgraded vacuum transport system with extremely precise belts, complete with adjustable suction system depending on the sheet size with automatic control. Other standard features include the carbon fiber chambered doctor blades, and automatic wash-up ensures reduced water consumption and quick job changeover. The Matthews fast lock system with double plates, angular skew correction and centreline allow the operator to mount the printing plate in a very short time and reduces machine set-up time. A transfer station between the last print unit and the die-cutting section prevents the printed surface from making contact with the belts in order to avoid rubbing and to control the quality thanks to the sheet ejector.

Chroma EVO is definitely the machine which offers the best value for money and reduced ownership costs, while at the same time, the most advanced technological solution.
