Ident 175 Converting Press


The Ident 175 Rotary Converting Press is without a doubt the most popular machine in the range manufactured by Ident Machines Ltd. The machine is built robustly to exacting standards, is easy-operable and versatile.

Modular design of the 175 machine allows interchangeability of its units with any other Ident manufactured units of the same web width.

Key benefits of this machine are:

- cost-effective tooling;
- quick setups and changeovers (due to user-friendly interface of the controls);
- easy manageability (mostly no lifting equipment is required as all the units with very few exceptions are below 20 kg in weight).
