Visitors got the opportunity to see some of the most challenging designs for flexo printers printing at high speeds as well as the company’s technology in eliminating print bounce, job set-up with zero waste and printing with minimum residual ink through Soma’s patented ink cartridge system using 100 L/cm screen.
Commenting on the show, Soma’s Pavla Kusa said, “drupa was an enormous success for us with five new Optima 2 presses sold worldwide. Many key global players who visited our stand at drupa showed interest in the Optima 2 machine. This confirmed to us that the new machine was a hit with its new, unique technology. Many important customers also visited our Soma Globe Technology and Training Centre for printing trials after the show and we are now working on final negotiations with them, as well as on a number of enquiries for ongoing projects that are very promising. We believe the Optima 2 is the only machine pushing the boundaries of wide web flexographic printing in comparison to gravure because we know that we can print these jobs through the flexographic printing process on the Optima and this is a great feeling for us.”
