For two consecutive years, Emirates Printing Press (EPP) has printed its luxury desk calendar with OMET Varyflex V2, using a sophisticated mix of printing technologies on different layers. This year, the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA), U.S.A. and European Flexographic Industries Association (EFIA), U.K awarded The Luxury Desk Calendar 2018, dedicated to the ‘Dubai interiors’, in the ‘Self-promotion’ category. “Highly consistent from page to page,” the judge said, “with very remarkable image sharpness and ink coverage.”
The 2018 version stimulates the complex mix of high-end printing and added-value finishing which can be combined in-line. OMET is associated with EPP with two rotary flexographic printing machines: one Varyflex V2 flexo and one X6 hybrid. While narrow web flexo presses are normally associated with the use of paper and film based pressure sensitive label stocks, the luxury calendar is an example of how flexo has improved and can be used for high quality reproduction on a variety of substrates including paper, film and foil. Omet has by and large been a leader in new technology implementations and operative efficiencies on narrow web flexo presses.
