Flint Group Narrow Web will provide tangible examples of how converters can expand their capabilities and consider new market opportunities – the wider world of narrow web flexible package printing! On display will be several case examples of packaging constructions printed using some of Flint Group Narrow Webs acknowledged range of UV curable ink series compliant with latest CMR labelling requirements as well as not formulated using BPA chemistry technologies.
High emphasis will be on LED curing technologies that will truly enable converters to embrace the benefits from this technology that lowers energy consumption with at least 50 % compared to other modern UV mercury curing technology.
A special focus will be devoted to provide guidance to converters aiming for inks and varnishes suitable to be used in the growing market segment of "hybrid presses" - where all various digital print technologies can be combined with UV Flexo, UV screen or other types of embellishment techniques
The acclaimed colour matching service - VIVO Colour Solution -a groundbreaking new innovation that is the most versatile easy to use system tailored for the Narrow Web industry- will be demonstrated. "We will have live demos of the ability to translate any kind of digital colour target, into an ink formulation that will enable converters to get colour right the first time, saving 1000's of Euros monthly in reduced press downtime, improved productivity, reduced material waste and greatly approved consistency and print quality. Further enhancements of VIVO Colour Solution will be making a world debut on Labelexpo 2019, claims Niklas Olsson.
