Allstein Press

Post by Richprints »

We are a packaging printer looking into purchasing a new wide web (67") flexo press. Can anyone give any feedback on Allstein CI presses?

This past June 6, I "celebrated" 43 years as a flexographer. This is the first time I have heard of Allstien. That said, I don't know them all, so it's not an indictment against them.

I had a look around their web site. One encouraging thing is that they are German machines. That usually means robust and effective.

I also looked at a YouTube video. They look like they know what they're doing.

I have a handful of clients that have purchased extremely inexpensive flexo presses from China and India. They are paying dearly for it. The construction shortcomings are obvious. The Allstein appears to be very well constructed.

Thanks Frank, I also have been in flexo more than 40 years and had never heard of Allstein either.

When Bobst acquired Fischer & Krecke, some of the laid off engineers and personnel started Allstein.
Their first company location was in Bielefeld, the same town where F&K, now Bobst is based.
Frank is right, they know what they are doing. Long experience

I can't tell you any details, but I have a client with a Tresu. It is, by far, the most incredible, serious beast I have ever seen, in a good way. I can't speak to operating it, but I appreciate what it does.
