Gearless servo flexographic printing technology

At PCMC, we have taken our servo driven technology to a whole new level. The ELS-MAX has taken technology from both inline and wide web CI presses and combined that technology to produce a fast changeover inline press that holds extremely tight register to PCMC’s historical standards. Printers will save up to 50-75% in both waste and setup time by having the capability to store and recall virtually every setting on the press. Stored jobs can also be shared between multiple presses with just a touch of a button.

The ELS-MAX is rated to run solvent ink along with our standard water-based and UV inks and offers the ability to quickly change press parameters to make it run extremely efficient on many types of material.
