Printing and Converting
Uteco Converting S.p.A is a leading manufacturer and supplier of equipment in the field of flexible packaging. Established in 1985, we have grown to become the largest Italian manufacturer of flexographic presses. Innovation has always been a key-point at Uteco, not only in the design and creation of leading edge equipment, but also with the ability to tailor machines to the specific needs of converters in any corner of the world. Our designers and production executives are constantly looking for new ideas and manufacturing processes to exceed customer’s expectations. Uteco quality is therefore built in from the initial design of each machine and throughout all manufacturing steps.
Uteco’s wide range of flexographic presses allow us to match our customers’ requirements with the perfect press from our wide and extensive range of products. We offer our customers cutting edge innovations and patented technologies that will ensure the quality of the printing will meet or exceed any available in today’s marketplace. Simultaneously, we also focus on developing and implementing new technologies aimed at increasing productivity and reducing waste.
Since 1990 Uteco has produced rotogravure printing presses for applications including flexible packaging, printing on aluminum, security applications, wallpaper, PVC, wood, foil, labels and sleeves.
In 2003 Uteco introduced a new range of electric line-shaft rotogravure presses. Thanks to experience and technical knowledge developed in the field of gearless flexo presses these machines now offer significant technical developments such as direct drive on engraved cylinders shafts, Synchro Web® or Strechreg® for printing of thin and stretchable materials such as 25-30 µ polyethylene.
Uteco’s coating and laminating machines were first introduced in the early 1990’s. Uteco has concentrated its production on special high performance coating machines equipped with automatic winders, the possibility to combine various coating trolleys as well as both horizontal and vertical drying hoods. Uteco completes its line of coating machines with two simple and compact modular models which can be upgraded at any time to accept laminated materials of both solvent less adhesive type (Rainbow) as well as water, solvent/solvent less based combined in one machine only (Mistral).
The Special Machine Business Unit includes rotogravure presses, roto-offset machines, coaters and laminators and machines for special applications even outside flexible packaging.
Uteco have been producing since 1990 rotogravure machines for various applications like flexible packaging, aluminium printing, security field, decorated paper, wood grain, labels and sleeves.
Starting from 2003 Uteco have introduced the new range of electrical shaft rotogravure presses that, thanks to the experience and the technological know-how developped in the geraless flexo presses, have been granted with technical solutions of high level.
