Thanks to its innovative and original technical solutions, our new press R972 represents a competitive solution capable of allowing a different approach to the short to medium run productions. An accurate use of the automation allows this press to achieve considerable savings in its relevant running costs, with the advantage of reducing the amount of its non-productive down-times:

  • Simplified and faster job change-over operations; faster preparation of parts for new production; thus savings in terms of start-up/running waste
  • Reduction of the ink return at the end of each production resulting in lower running costs
  • Less personnel required (both on the press and off the press)
  1. To operate the press
  2. During part make-ready
  3. During job change-over
