PEI Bag, Prince Edward Island, Canada, has purchased of a new CI flexographic printing press: a Koenig & Bauer XG LR CI eight-color press.
A 2006-purchased Italian Galaxy gear-driven eight-color will be removed to make room for the new Koenig & Bauer XG LR. At the end of this phase, PEI Bag will be operating two flexo printing presses from Koenig & Bauer. The new eight-color XG LR will print a large portion of PEI’s larger repeat bags, but the firm will continue to use the 2010 press for its other for smaller repeat jobs. Management foresees the new XG LR producing 50-60 percent of the firm’s work due to its high speed, increased flexibility, and faster automated wash-ups and clean-ups, according to the company.
PEI Bag’s XG LR highly automated CI flexo press is configured with eight print stations and a printing repeat length of 1,250 mm.
