R I C H Graphics So why dryers?... The Benefits MAXIMIZED PRODUCTIVITY High Speed Printing, Die Cutting and Finishing In a Single Pass. Improved ink on-press stability OPTIMIZED QUALITY Improved color brilliance and quality through dry trapping. Minimized (or eliminated) tracking, marking, smearing and ghosting. Significant reduction of waste. ALL THAT & SAFETY Sentinel – Automatic Sheet Detection System. VisionMaster – In-Press Dryer Inspection & Monitoring System
5,000 sheets/hr on 1600 mm cylinder = 160 milliseconds of dwell time when exposed to Final Flexo Dryer 10,000 sheets/hr on 1600 mm cylinder = 80 milliseconds of dwell time when exposed to Final Flexo Dryer Water (volatiles) evaporate Ink cells flow together IR Dryer Continuous ink layer Top Liner Bottom Liner Pigment Binder Ink delivered to board from anilox cells Water (Vehicle) & Amines

R I C H Graphics Top Printer Case Studies: White Top 3-Colors Webbox/Pigs Ears: Before Dryers - 4,000 sph / After Dryers – 14,000 sph. Representing a 250% Increase in Productivity 4-Color Vier Jahreszeiten Wine Box: Before Dryers - 8,000 sph / After Dryers – 18,000 sph Representing a 125% Increase in Productivity
R I C H Graphics CEMSA Case Study Run Condition Before Dryer One Pass three (3) colors – 4,000 sheets/hour Stopping EVERY 20 minutes to clean plates and due to marking of the anvil cover - for a total of 20 minutes DOWNTIME every 20 minutes!! 50 Production hours to yield 100,000 sheets. CEMSA installed a dwell station with integrated JB Machinery Final Flexo Dryer on their their 3 color RDC. Run Condition After Dryer One Pass three (3) colors - 5,240 sheets/hour Stopping every 33,000 sheets (6.3 hours) for 20 minutes to clean anvil covers and plates! 20 Production hours to yield 100,000 sheets. An overall increase in productivity of more than 150% Payback based on added press time for Pizza Hut job ONLY < 5 Months!!!!
Productivity Quality Consistency
R I C H Graphics Top Printer Case Studies: Semi-Coated 618 Flexo Folder Gluer installed with two (2) JB Flexo Dryers, after print stations 2 & 4. SEMI-COATED 3-Colors: Before Dryers - Not possible / After Dryers – 12,500 sph An Increase in Product Offerings and New Market Oppotrtunities
