Asahi Photoproducts, a leading flexographic photopolymer plate developer, will showcase its water-washable flexographic plate solutions featuring Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer at Labelexpo Europe 2017, which will take place from 25-28 September 2017 in Brussels.
“At the show, our experts will be on hand to help visitors better understand how Asahi AWP plates can improve OEE and profitability without compromising on quality. Visitors to our stand will also be able to see printed application samples and get advice from our experts about the best plates for their individual needs,” says Akihiro Kato, managing director of Asahi Photoproducts Europe.
Asahi will also inform visitors about fixed color palette printing, which uses a fixed palette of up to seven inks to virtually eliminate the need for spot color inks. Because it uses a fixed set of inks, there is no wash-up required between jobs, and combo jobs are made easier.
“In our opinion,” adds Kato, “this is the future of flexography, especially for flexible packaging, and favorably positions flexography to compete with digital printing for all but the very shortest runs.” Asahi will be located on Stand 5A34 at the show.
