The Heliostar S and the Miraflex C are two new printing presses made available for package printing by Windmoeller & Hoelscher Corp.

This rotogravure press offers cost-effective printing of flexible packaging materials, such as plastic films or laminates. Maximum printing width is 51 inches with a print repeat of 36 inches.

The Miraflex C (pictured) offers a sleeve type nip roller before the first printing deck, which allows the nip roll to be changed from film to paper or to tube production quickly and easily.

The new flexo press can be supplied with eight or 10 colour decks with printing widths of 39 inches to 57 inches. The maximum print repeat length is 1,640 ft/min.
