Decrease the total cost of ownership of your equipment!
Obviously, the more you decrease your production costs, the more margin you have!
In a competitive market, you have to :
- reduce the set up costs for each job (reduce waste and set up time to the minimum, reduce tooling costs)?
- increase printing speed?
- get the longest lifetime of your equipment?
- maximize the production output you can achieve with one machine?
- decrease working hours costs?
Guess what? Aniflo technology is the answer to all this points!
With 3$ per plate, and maximum 6 colours per job needed, with just few minutes to change job, with up to 85 m/min in production, with lowest cost of consumables (inks, substrates), Aniflo is the most cost efficient solution on the narrow web market between 300 m and up to more than 10 000m run length!
Let’s do some maths
You have to print medium run job, let’s say 150 000 labels and 6000 m long. With the VIVA Aniflo, the total production cost is 6% below compared to flexo, and the total production time*, is 20% less compared to wet offset.
*total production time including set up, total production cost including pre press, amortization of the machine, waste, working hours, consumables.
65 € less compared to flexo. Small money ?
If you print this kind of job all year long, on a two shifts basis (16h per day) and 240 days per year, you are saving 125 000€ per year compared to flexo!
And if you are printing shorter run, the savings can be still higher! See article below.
Reach the exact result your customers demand!
Aniflo is stable, so Aniflo is predictable!
Proof = press is no longer a dream, but an easily achieved goal!
Before going on press, you know what the result will be. Thanks to the Anilox inking system, you deliver an exact quantity of ink, along and across the web.
And no need to change the anilox if you want to adjust the density, simply change the temperature to change the viscosity of the ink. In few seconds you’ll see the result, without wasting more than few printing formats! And no need to adjust ink/water balance, it is waterless offset!
Let’s see how life is without Aniflo
With a flexo press, in order to achieve the right color, you may have to change the anilox, depending on design and application, pre-press... then adjust pressure for good result
With a wet offset, it is sometimes even more complicated, by setting up ink keys, ink water balance... You are wasting time and money just to get the color your customers expect !
With Aniflo you get the exact color you want !
Whatever is the way you are printing, either in direct pantones or in Expanded gamut printing (see our article mixing the inks or mixing the dots?) you know, before going on press what would be the result!
And if you need to adjust ink density, simply adjust temperature in the anilox. You adjust then the viscosity of the ink, thus adjusting the result, without changing anilox, nor wasting time or material!
No ghosting, no inertia, no rubber rollers, no ink key settings... that's the magic part of Aniflo ! Discover more in this short video below.
