According to Uteco, the Sapphire is also ideal for integration into analogue printing processes.

The press prints both paper and plastic substrates at a max speed of 300 m/min and a width of 400 mm.

Uteco has also developed the Sapphire Evo which combines the capabilitiy of flexo and gravure printing with the Kodak Prosper S-Series digital printing heads. A broad variety of configurations is available on request.
