The EUROFLEX is KYMC's most advanced next generation (2011) High Speed Gearless CI Flexo Press built on a vibration dampening Mono-block heavy duty platform. The Mono-block frames are 4" thick for 8 and 10 colors for speeds up to 1500 FPM.
Euroflex the latest European standard gearless flexo press is argueably the best value to quality gearless press in the market, pairing modern European components and design with smart Taiwan technology at affordable equipment that allow you to stay in the competitive edge. The press is equipped with advanced automatic register preset system as well as the automatic print pressure setting for reduced waste.
The Euroflex integrates a new generation computerized job management system which incorporates auto deck position control, auto print sleeve ejection system and auto wash system, makes Euroflex one of the fastest change machines in the market. The reduced set up time also minimizes waste making it ideal for both short and long production runs.
All major components on the press come from European suppliers such as Central Drum, servo drives, PLC and controls etc, guaranteeing reliable machine performance for long term.
The EUROFLEX is built with the same precision and technology from our experience building the gearless and CNC while making additional improvements. All printing stations are controlled with a high degree of accuracy to ensure excellent printing quality and a good price/value ratio on your investment.
Most of the press components are either manufactured in the US or available through US subsidiaries such as Rexroth/Indramat and PLC programmable controls by Simens. The Euroflex complies fully with OSHA and CE standards.

Monoblock & Deck Positioning
The modern monoblock design is made from thick 4" single block molds that minimize traditional block sections. The mass sections run the length of the CI drum and decks to significantly reduce vibration at all speeds while facilitating quick change over windows.
In addition, stablizing printing deck bars are solidly joined between either side of the monoblock design to additionally decrease vibration to a minimum for the most accurate registration at higher speeds.
Deck positioning is precise to 1 micron through direct coupling servo motors, with simultaneous sleeve changes of the print and anilox rollers including an automatic push out feature for quick change overs helpful for short runs. Motor cross bars are eliminated by the individual deck motors, AC servo, that directly connect to the ball screws via couplings.
Fully Servo and Direct Drive CI
Euroflex uses a Direct Drive Central Drum via torque motor from Rexroth/Indramat, for extreme precision to the direct AC servo drives (Indramat) on both the plate and anilox sleeve mandrels to guarantee the best print register tolerance during running.
Full servo drives on each print stations and are controlled through industrial network system, providing extreme accurate control on print registration and impression control.
Large diameter sleeve mandrels are used to insure vibration (bounce) free operation. Carbon fiber mandrels are available. The print sleeves will automatically push out on this press.
Zero backlash of deck position control for impression setting. Printing and anilox mandrel movement is achieved through high precision circulating ball type feeding screws, activated by four motors for each station.
Deck motors, AC servo, are directly connected to the ball screws by couplings. Supports of both printing and anilox air mandrels move on high precision linear guides. The liner guide is pre-loaded without any backlash, to avoid any lock-down needs. Anti-impact safety device is employed.
The Euroflex uses both an automatic pre-register and setting system by Eltromat using the webvideo Star 2000 Modul fast flexo Profibus-interface for reduced waste.

Auto Impression Setting
The Euroflex uses both an automatic pre-register and auto impression setting system by integrating the Eltromat star 2000 system for reduced waste. The auto set technology automates the ink deck setting for plate and anilox rollers simultaneously, saving hundreds of feet of waste during press start up.
Modul fast flexo auto set tech, Profibus-interface:
- Fully-automatic impression setting of anilox and plate rolls
- Simultaneous setting of all printing units
- Connection to the press via PROFIBUS
- Measurement of specially combined mark pattern (CI register and fast setting)
- Measurement of mark pattern at several positions possible
- Fully integrated and optimized sequence of ink deck setting with length and side register control.
Modul image lock:
- Intelligent trigger sensor
- Optical trigger sensor for perfect stabilization of the displayed print image
- Motorized traverse
- Automatic pre-positioning
- Reflection bar for stabilization of the web in the area of the setting.
The final print position can be saved for repeat production. The drives will be activated for "Home searching" automatically after the saved print position is recalled.

Touch Screen Control
Central control and monitoring system with clear structured graphic for easy operation. Machine functions are PC based industrial network controlled, software in Windows platform, user friendly touch screen operation available in 5 different languages. Remote control consoles are placed on each side of the printing section for easy and convenient of operation. All the parameter setting on each console are automatically synchronized updating to the central data base.
Vapor Capture Cabinet
The Euroflex comes standard with a modern enclosed CI printing cabinet/room for solvent vapor capture that complies with worldwide environmental requirements for minimum odor plan operation.
KYMC continues their innovation with their quick wash system for efficient cleaning of doctor blade chambers, anilox rolls and ink hoses. This system uses much less solvent than any other system on the market. The system can also be used with water base inks.
The base canister system is a seperate unit to accomodate your floor layout needs while minimizing downtime.
Remote Diagnosis and Service
Instant service is critical to your business productivity. KYMC recognizes this by installing a modem on every press we manufacture for quick diagnosis and troubleshooting/servicing adjustments when available.
Dual High Efficiency Dryer
The dual circuit, dual zone drying system is standard on the press, providing, high drying capacity for both in-between colors, as well as the final oven. This is to help ensure there is complete ink drying during high speed production. For additional reduced energy costs, expent drying air can be recirculated with a slovent concentation monitor fitted in-line to ensure safe operation.
KYMC continues their commitment to maintain the highest up-time by enclosing the electrical into a cabinet located on the mezzanine deck with dedicated air-conditioned units.
In addition, spacious area has been allocated for easy maintenence and problem solving with numbered PLC cabling/corded networks. All wiring coply with CE regulation, electric components are supplied from reputable brand name European and Japanese suppliers.
Flying Splice Turret Unwind/Rewind
KYMC's turret flying splice unwind/rewind with European phantom axis compact design offers full speed splicing. The touch screen operation guarantees smooth splicing during reel change over. Tension controls on both unwind and rewind are fully automatic through PLC control.
The best value gearless press in the market with quality based on decades of proven technology for today's demanding market.
