MicroMax – Flexographic Rotary Printer

Micromax is a flexographic printing system, designed to integrate with horizontal form-fill-seal machines. It can print your complete package - eliminating the need to purchase and manage pre-printed packaging material.

Greydon revolutionizes multi-color in-line printing with the MicroMax series of flexographic rotary printers. This Patented technology combines the best of Rotary print quality with the simplicity and design of the platen press.

The design and print orientation allows for exact print registration and precise two-color alignment. The MicroMax also features removable Teflon-coated circulating inking systems with bottle feed for quick color changes and fast and easy end-of-day clean-ups.


Features and Benefits

  • One or two color printing, with low cost per print.
  • Crossweb print orientation - the servo-driven print drum is rolled across the material web while the parent machine is stationary. This creates a more compact system and enhances print position accuracy.
  • Safe water-based inks produce excellent print quality with no harmful substances to worry about.
  • The ink fountain and anilox roll one complete unit, allowing easy fountain removal in less than 30 seconds for cleaning or color change.
  • A companion digital printhead handles variable information such as date/lot codes, compliance logos and UDI/DSCSA barcoding.

Solutions For:

Senior Leadership

Your Challenges:

  • You need your teams to introduce more efficient manufacturing techniques to maintain margins.
  • You notice a lot of waste of time and materials in your production operations.
  • Occasionally, production is disrupted due to late delivery of customized packaging materials.

Our Solutions:

  • Installing a Greydon inline printer can help make your packaging operations more efficient, improving productivity and margins by eliminating the need to purchase, store and manage preprinted packaging.
  • A Greydon inline printer can address many of the wastes of lean manufacturing, such as overproduction, excess movement and inventories.
  • Using the MicroMax printer on your packaging line allows your staff to order plain, unprinted materials, which is much simpler (and less prone to disruption) than managing multiple SKUs of preprinted materials.

Operations Management

Your Challenges:

  • The need to constantly improve efficiency and reduce downtime.
  • Ensure compliance requirements for UDI or DSCSA are met, including printing the correct GS1 Datamatrix barcodes as required by the standards.

Our Solutions:

  • Using a MicroMax printer on your packaging line often means that there is no need to change the roll of blister foil when changing jobs - usually, just the print plate needs to be changed. This makes setups faster and reduces the need to move rolls of material to and from the storage area.
  • While UVMax is a mechanical flexographic printer, it includes a digital companion printer, usually with thermal inkjet (TIJ) technology. This addition handles printing variable data, such as date/lot codes and compliance barcodes.

Operators & Technicians

Your Challenges:

  • Many packaging machines are complicated and time-consuming to set up, causing frustrations for everyone on the packaging line.
  • Management tends to pressure you to constantly reduce downtime.

Our Solutions:

  • When your company installs a Greydon inline printer, setups become simple because you often don't need to change the roll of packaging material for each new product.
  • A MicroMax printer means that cumbersome rolls of material are not always having to be retrieved from storage and then replaced at the end of a production run. This saves time (avoiding downtime) and makes reconciliation of materials much easier.
