Flexo Proofing Products

Prepress proofing solutions for flexo printing

Our mounter-proofers are designed to be fast in operation and easy to use. Available to suit a range of print form combinations, they facilitate a superb level of mounting and proofing accuracy.

Protect your sleeves and your operators whilst achieving clean cuts/joints on your flexo plates and tape with our range of cutting systems
Apply tape faster, more precisely and more consistently with our range of operator friendly tape holders and applicators
Press manufacturers are working tirelessly to reduce start up waste through accurate pre-setting. We have a range of solutions to match your mounter to your press pre-setting system
For manual mounters without motorised cameras, LED display showing positional data in the X axis significantly aides operator set-up negating the need of a tape ruler
A table, powered pneumatically to advance and retract as required. Options to hold the rear and/or front half of the plate during mounting (this avoids the need to protect the rear half of the plate mounting tape on the sleeve with silicone release liner)
Improve efficiency, consistency and remove the risks of air bubbles often associated with ‘hand rolling’ using our silicone foam lay down roller. This applies an even pressure across the full width of the sleeve for both tape and plate application

Mounter Proofer

A range of mounter proofers to mount and create a physical proof of the plates and the register prior to long production runs. Proofing uses acrylic/paste ink on paper.

  • Available in manual or servo-motorised models
  • Available for sleeve or cylinder versions
  • Facilitates high mounting and proofing accuracy
  • Heaford has over 25 years’ experience in mounter proofers
  • Web widths up to 1800mm(71”)
  • Repeat from 300mm(12”) to 1500mm(59”)

Associated Products

  • Sleeve exchange unit
For manual mounters without motorised cameras, LED display showing positional data in the X axis significantly aides operator set-up negating the need of a tape ruler
Significantly reduce job set up and repeatability when mounting multiple plates. Plate positions can be input, taught, or imported. Recall or edit jobs quickly from the database of stored jobs

Flexo Proof Press

SDF

Eliminates the need for on press approvals. Produces real production proofs using the same substrates, inks, sleeves, plates & anilox rollers as your press. Allows your press to focus on revenue generating production work. Proofs are comparable to production press samples and off-press prototype designs.

  • Uses production substrates, sleeves, production plates, anilox & inks
  • Proof can be analysed to accurately measure density and dot gain
  • Ability to proof within 95% of production proof
  • Compatible with solvent, water or UV inks, including PMS inks
  • Variable proofing speeds
  • Accurate adjustment and measurement of impressions
  • Control of anilox to plate & plate to substrate pressures
  • Also available for narrow web cylinder version
  • Web widths up to 1750mm(69”)
  • Proof length up to 5000mm(197”)
