Xiamen Yingsheng installs Heidelberg flexo press

The Chinese company Xiamen Yingsheng, which specialises in Aseptic liquid packaging, is planning to install a Heidelberg Intro flexo press to expand its production.

Xiamen Yingsheng invested some €40 million to establish a brand new production facility in 2012, which produces 6 billion packs per year. This investment included a Gallus Intro, and the company is now ready to double its print output, having ordered a second Intro at the end of last year, which is due to be installed later this year.

Heidelberg rebranded the Gallus web-press folding carton and paperboard division as Heidelberg Web Carton Converting back in 2014 when Heidelberg acquired Gallus, leaving the Gallus brand to concentrate on label printing.

The Intro is a web-fed inline device aimed at the folding carton market. It’s available in print widths from 560 up to 1650mm and runs at 600mpm. It takes paper and carton up to 800gsm or 1020mm thick and can be used to produce folding cartons, liquid packaging, lottery tickets and flexible packaging. It boasts automatic preset parameters to limit start up waste, as well as servo-controlled printing units and electronic register controls for optimum print quality. The inline arrangement makes sleeve changes reasonably fast and its possible to prepare unused printing units while the press is running. 

It can be used with water, UV or solvent-based inks. The press can be configured with a range of converting options including laminating, cold foil, screen printing, embossing, digital and gravure printing. It can also be combined with an integrated flatbed or rotary die cutter as well as a slitter. 

Xiamen Yingsheng has opted for seven-colour presses for CMYK plus two spot colours with the seventh unit available for an additional spot colour or special effect, which is a common set-up in the liquid packaging industry. The presses print to Aseptic paper material at a width of 1340 mm and a maximum speed of 500mpm.

Mr Li, vice general manager for Xiamen Yingsheng, says: “We are very convinced that this further investment is another step on our further growth and continued partnership with Heidelberg WCC.”
