By using proven Apex components and a building block concept, the C-40 can be supplied with pre-treating systems which include both corona spot-treat or flame treat. A variety of print technologies can also be integrated within this machine. In addition to being able to offer up to 4 colors in the dry-offset configuration, this machine can also be supplied as a 1-color rotary gravure printer, 1-color rotary hot-stamper, up to 4 colors FlexApex, or a combination dry-offset and FlexApex printing machine.
A variety of different curing units can be incorporated to offer either infrared, convection, or ultraviolet curing applicable for the client’s appropriate inks and product requirements. Medical devices of varying styles and sizes can be printed on this machine, but the C-40 typically handles parts less than 155mm in diameter and 300mm in length.
Apex C-500 Syringe Printers
The C-500 is an index-motion part handling system, supplied with servo-driven 8-station, 12-station or 16-station horizontal dials to suit a wide variety of medical devices and customer requirements.
The C-500 is also of a modular design and, as with other Apex machines, utilizes a building block concept to integrate various features suitable for each application within the system.
