The machine has a production speed from 30,000 to 300,000 pieces / hour.
The caps are fed to the machine via a gravity cap feeder and the continuous motion of the central drum ensures perfect concentricity of the printing on the caps irrespective of the speed. Drying is achieved by a high power Ultra Violet device.
Cap diameter changeover is enabled by quick-change of the central vacuum wheel ensuring the operation is simple and easy and is carried out in minimum time. A new pre-print option allows a base colour to be applied to the cap before printing. This enhances the secondary print decoration colour density.
The automatic piece-counter, integrated by MOSS before unloading the closures to boxes, ensures precise counting of all the printed closures and also controls the automatic changeover of boxes to be filled. Vision-Inspection camera devices are available as an option.
Moss also have launched a new technology DDS - Digital Decorating System which can apply high quality digital graphics to a wide range of plastic containers. This technology is suitable for round buckets, elliptical and square buckets, tubs, flexible tubes, aluminium closures and similar articles.
Moss has been manufacturing printing machinery for decorating plastic products for 40 years, and manufacture technologies such as silk screen, dry offset, hot stamping and digital depending on the application.
Moss is represented in Oceania by HBM Plastics Technologies.
