Simple Enhancement for Your Flexo Press Process

Carriage System as a Stand-Alone BUILT-ON Solution

DISTORUN® is a compact, stand-alone BUILT-ON transfer unit and works independently of the printing press control system. The module is placed on the rail system of your flexo press, with the web speed of the printed substrate being recorded via a rotary encoder. The cold transfer product is placed on the unwinder shaft with its cardboard core, and then clamped and fed to the printing press via deflection pulleys. This allows you to finish continuous decorations and single images without having to modify your labeling machine.

Our Cold Transfer DISTORUN®:

  • Processes both continuous designs and single images
  • Utilizing free areas saves film
  • Variable positioning on the rail system possible
  • No machine modifications necessary
  • Synchronized with the printing press
  • Equipped with modern servo control and sensor technology
  • Up to three rolls can be controlled simultaneously
  • Acoustic and visual warnings before the film runs out
  • Special widths on request
