SOMA (www.soma-eng.com), a leader in flexographic printing technology, is excited to announce its participation at the upcoming drupa 2024, the world's leading trade show for printing technologies. At this prestigious event, SOMA will be exhibiting the Optima2, its ten-color flagship flexo press that combines proven performance with the latest cutting-edge technology.

Attendees will have the opportunity to witness the Optima2 in action, with two live demonstrations scheduled each day. These demos will not only highlight the press's high-speed capabilities, running very demanding designs at speeds of up to 600 meters per minute, but will also showcase SOMA’s Advanced Bounce Control technology—a testament to the company’s commitment to innovation and quality. Furthermore, SOMA will showcase the impressive intelligence and automation built into the press, which facilitates error-free job changeovers—features that enhance operational efficiency and reduce downtime.

In addition to the Optima2 flexo press, SOMA will present its automatic plate mounter, the S-Mount, designed for quick and precise plate mounting, and the PLUTO III.2 slitter rewinder, featuring an integrated waste management system that underscores SOMA’s dedication to sustainability and efficient production.

SOMA is proud to introduce the recently launched Intelligent Printing Unit (IPU), a pioneering solution in flexographic printing. The IPU, designed to integrate seamlessly with SOMA Optima2 flexo printing presses, enables single-pass operations that dramatically increase the efficiency of package print production. This includes the application of various barrier or functional coatings, as well as heat/cold seal capabilities.

While drupa attendees will witness the advanced capabilities of the SOMA Optima2 flexo press and other state-of-the-art equipment, SOMA is also excited to introduce the PROXIMA flexo press. As the newest member of the SOMA family, PROXIMA embodies the synergy of simplicity and sophisticated technology. PROXIMA offers an economical and efficient printing solution focused on operational comfort.

SOMA invites attendees to visit them at Hall 15, Stand A01 to see these advanced systems in person. More information is available at www.soma-eng.com. Registration for live demos is now open at https://soma-eng.com/drupa-demo.
