For more than 25 years Iconotech’s OptiFlex printing process has provided packagers with simple, fast and flexible printing systems for batch printing corrugated cases, die cuts and multi-wall kraft bags. The cost savings generated by the OptiFlex process can be very substantial thanks to several key features: Users have total control of graphics, barcodes and text on every print job. Changes are quick and simple - no plate costs or lead times. Consolidating SKUs into common case sizes drives down the cost of corrugated. Using generic cases eliminates scrap and obsolescence. Printing systems give years of service with minimal maintenance.
OptiFlex is a direct contact printing process using a nontoxic, pigmented ink and a very thin, disposable fiber-backed Mylar film as a “print plate.” Print layouts take minutes to create and changes take seconds in standard labeling software. Layouts are output to a thermal imager to produce a high definition print stencil that provides a large 11” x 32” (280mm x 812mm) print field accommodating graphics, barcodes, logos, and product information. The combination of the thin print medium placed in precise, direct contact with the substrate and the non-fade, pigmented ink renders high quality print. Users get a preprint look and a superior choice to flexography for short runs of 2500 cases/bags or less with a maximum print output of 3600 rsc cases/hour.
All Iconotech printers use the same OptiFlex process. Users can start with an entry level machine, choosing a feeding system appropriate for their throughput and print media – RSC cases, die cuts, trays or kraft multi-wall gusset or valve bags – and add the appropriate material handling components they need for maximum efficiency and productivity. Iconotech’s OptiFlex process and equipment puts control back in the manufacturer’s hands providing them with the advantages of flexography but at an enormous savings for small batch runs.
