Aniflo, the Digital Alternative

Very low plate costs, 10-minute plate making, low waste, and short make-ready make the Codimag Viva 340 with it’s ANIFLO “keyless” anilox offset system the ideal solution for short-run label production.

The ANIFLO is a very unique offset printing unit on which ink is delivered by an anilox in order to get a constant and regular ink volume. The ANIFLO is the right mix of flexo and offset technologies to eliminate variables (such as ink key control for example) and stabilize the print process, reducing waste and make-ready time.
With offset quality and anilox stability, the ANIFLO allows process stabilization and control, color management becomes more reliable.
