A combined offset and flexo sleeve rotary press for top-quality printing on multiple substrates for the label, flexible packaging, folding cartons and security/transactional documents markets.
UNIVERSAL has a system of interchangeable light offset sleeves which are patented by Rotatek worldwide. The sleeve technology gives unbeatable ease and simplicity in changing multiple formats. Whereas changing jobs merely requires removing the sleeves, which avoids the material breaking.
Not only is it easier and faster, but it is also a much more cost-effective way of printing in different formats, because, using this technology, you only need to change two light sleeves. Sleeve technology, which has contributed greatly to the development of flexo printing, is now also a reality in the offset world.
Apart from Universal’s very high offset quality, and flexibility of changing formats and speed of changing jobs, it has the advantage of a lower pre-printing cost (offset plates are cheaper than flexo plates or rotogravure rollers).
