THE recent installation of two more Kuen Yuh Machinery Company (KYMC) flexo presses, in Adelaide and Melbourne, takes the Taiwan company’s installed base of flexo and gravure presses and laminators in Australasia to 26.
According to Ian Guanaria at KYMC agent Aldus Engineering, both installations were the DFC stack machines, one going to Stacey Konstas’s Polybag in Adelaide, the other to Peter Williams’ PGA Laminations.
A KYMC servo motor drive central impression (CI) press was also installed late last year by an undisclosed client, its fifth KYMC machine, Guanaria said.
Polybag purchased the new press to increase capacity and provide flexibility to meet increasing customer needs while PGA Lamination's purchase was based on the need to increase web width capacity. Its new DFP-2100 is double the web width of the older press resulting in greater productivity and economies in production.
Guanaria said Williams had visited KYMC in Taiwan to have the press tailor-made to meet his particular needs.
“PGA operates in a specialist niche market and the new DFP allows them to provide quicker deliveries and maintain their prominent market position.,” he said.
The KYMC DFP press was available in two, four and six colours and was ideal for light gauge films, with one side, or both side printing and many options resulting in an extremely versatile and economical machine. Aldus (02 9809 0363).
