The Sovereign Decorator is a high-quality can decorating machine designed to effectively, attractively decorate beverage cans at high speeds. According to the manufacturer, it reduces changeover time for manufacturers producing high volumes of cans in short runs, while minimizing spoilage and saving ink. The system uses up to eight colors to enable beverage can manufacturers to offer brand owners more sophisticated, distinctive designs, according to the company; further, the oscillating rubber offer smooth and even printing. Print rollers' oscillating speeds can be individually fine-tuned to allow the inkers to work with any ink color or viscosity. Other features include linear bearing spindle disc design that applies consistent mandrel-to-blanket pressure to the can surface, anti-ghosting rollers, and programming capability that allows for use of inks and graphics in a library of printing recipes (which assists in speeding up label changes).
