K Lox Proofer

ˑ The most simple tool to make a sample that is very similar to that made by general flexographic printing.
ˑ A sample by flexographic printing can be created. This saves the time during which actual equipment is stopped for testing.
ˑ Manual and automatic models are available.

K Lox Proofer

Features

ˑ Its compact size is ideal for problem solving on site.
ˑ An accurate and reproducible press proof similar to that by flexographic printing can be created immediately by applying flexographic ink or other liquid coatings to an object to coat.
ˑ It is easy to use with quickly replaceable rubber and an anilox roller, and cleaning is easy.
ˑ The film thickness can be controlled with an engraving anilox roller.
ˑ Tests can be performed with small amount of ink, which reduces the waste of expensive materials.
ˑ An anilox roller can provide up to 400 lines/inch.
ˑ Coating width: 115 mm
ˑ Printing ink: Flexographic ink (water-based, solvent-based, or UV)
ˑ Printing sheet: Paper, film

Demo Examples

Creating Samples of Flexography Colors

We created color samples by putting flexographic ink on liner paper.

Hydrophilic/Hydrophobic Pattern Printing

Using this equipment, we created samples of flexographic printing by hand coating.
