ABOUT AV FLEXOLOGIC
A family business with a history of 50 years
AV Flexologic is part of the Color Control Group, a privately owned group of companies in the Netherlands, owned by the Otten family. At AV Flexologic we treat our customers as partners and we create solutions based on their needs.
We have been recognized with the prestigious FTA Technical Innovation Award 2023 for RoboCELL, our latest prepress solution. After 8 years of R&D, we unveiled with the world our patented technology for a fully automated prepress. And now, in 2023, our RoboCELL was designated for its exceptional technical achievements, resulting in significant time saving in the prepress workflow, risk reduction (no manual operator intervention) and improved quality (seamless taping and no sleeve damage).
We are honored to receive the EFIA UK Gold Award - Technical Innovation for our RoboCELL. Our award-winning RoboCell is the culmination of all our robotic devices. It allows the RoboSleeve, RoboTape, and FAMM to work in tandem and provide a fully automatic workflow. With this, you gain all the benefits of each separate machine, such as eliminating tape waste, eliminating sleeve damage, and no more operator-related press downtime, to name but a few.
"When we got to a point to select an individual technology, we felt that the SAMM mounting machine was the best possible solution". They decided to buy not one, but two machines for both their locations following visits to AV Flexologic customers. " We are now yielding 50 to 60 plates per shift, whereas before it was 20 to 30."
"Of course I would recommend AV Flexologic because it's a reliable partner and it's a very good product. In the future I see a lot of opportunities. We will still keep mounting on the MOM because we are very happy with it. I don't think we will shift to another. "
"We have invested in a new mounter because it can mount faster and the quality is very good. So, our customers are very happy with the printing plates. On the Flatmount, you can mount 30% faster than on a round machine. It is also possible to get a Quality Report for the customer. So, the customer can see for himself that everything is correct."
“AV Flexologic is the global leader in prepress solutions. Period. Bryce partners with industry thought leaders and works with them to develop solutions the industry isn’t even thinking about yet. With the innovative RoboCELL, AV Flexologic has established an even larger lead over their next distant competitor.”
"Investing money in the SAMM 2.0 1300 was a great decision! The SAMM 2.0 is a perfect combination of innovations that ensure better quality and higher productivity. Thanks to incredible precision of the SAMM the productivity in the prepress department is very high. The SAMM 2.0 mounts plates extremely fast, it takes only from 60 to 40 minutes for a 10 colors job. Besides, it’s operator independent and very easy to use."
How to apply tape using the cutting knife and tape holder
The cutting knife provides a seamless and easy tape application without damaging the sleeve. It is equipped with a ceramic blade with adjustable width, therefore the knife cuts through the tape but not the sleeve.
VPP: Virtual Proof Print - Digital proof print of corrugated flexo plates
The VPP provides a digital proof print after scanning each mylar. After that, it created a PDF with scanning results. The VPP prevents press downtime related to mounting plates upside-down while it is easy to spot misalignments.
