Baldwin Showcases Innovations for Corrugated Flexo Printers at ConneXion

Baldwin Technology Company Inc. will showcase its key innovative technologies for optimized corrugated high-graphics package printing at the ConneXion virtual expo, taking place from June 1 to 8.

In Baldwin’s virtual exhibit, visitors will experience fully automated flexo plate-cleaning systems, an energy-efficient IR (infrared) drying solution and LED-UV curing systems, all of which increase print quality and productivity, with operator safety and sustainability in mind.

The FlexoCleanerBrushTM is Baldwin’s flagship solution to enhance print quality and improve worker safety in corrugated printing. It automatically removes dust and contamination from the plate in seconds during production, without stopping the press, and it produces virtually no waste. It also performs full end-of-job plate cleaning and drying in fewer than four minutes, enabling increased uptime and sustainability.

Because the FlexoCleanerBrush is fully automatic and spans the entire width of the plate cylinder, it reportedly improves safety by eliminating routine operator contact with the machine and reduces the risk of operator contact with wash agents and cylinder nip injuries.

The FlexoCleanPickTM system is an industry-leading innovation designed to automatically remove hickeys—typically caused by paper fibers, dust and ink contamination, and other causes of printing defects—from the plate during the print run without stopping the press or requiring operator skin contact with wash agents. The system lightly touches the plate with a dry microfiber cloth to remove the hickey-causing particles, enhancing print quality and productivity without any waste.

The FlexoDry2TM is a fully integrated IR drying system, specifically developed for corrugated flexo printing presses, that reportedly reduces energy consumption by up to 30 percent over standard IR dryers via the use of patented Diamond IRTM lamps. The system delivers dramatically improved drying results through a unique optical design that produces higher intensity for enhanced color definition, reducing or eliminating marking altogether, allowing for high-speed and full-confidence printing.
