The AccraSeam™ FC is a servo-driven, fully-continuous shrink sleeve seamer with two-position unwind and rewind turrets. With flying splices at full speed that generate only four meters of waste, the ASFC allows for maximum production without compromise.

Equipped with fully-automatic table with seam positioning, the ASFC allows the operator to enter the layflat width and seam location - then will automatically adjust.

The layflat quality check system provides reports for each roll, giving your customer the quality assurance they demand.

The NUVAFLEX® 32 SERIES inks have been designed for today’s Label & Packaging printers. These inks enable fine screens to be printed using high LPI/low BCM anilox rolls, while minimizing film weight. Benefits include adhesion to difficult films, low viscosity and free flow rheology, low odor, minimal plate swelling and speeds of over 700ft per minute. NUVAFLEX® 32 SERIES inks are also silicone and wax free. This enables trapping, hot stamping, thermal overprinting, lamination, durability and maximizes true natural bonding.
