CHINA UNIVERSITY DELEGATES VISIT DUPONT™ CYREL® TECHNOLOGY CENTER WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, USA
Beijing University, Institute of Graphic Communication, is one of the leading academic institutions for printing and packaging education in China. Prof. Xu Wencai*, together with Prof. Ma Erjun, recently visited the DuPont Cyrel® Customer Technology Center in Wilmington, to participate in a comprehensive technology update with DuPont experts on flexographic photopolymer technology and applications.
In China, rotogravure is the established printing technology for packaging applications. As China’s economy continues to grow rapidly, the demand for packaging increases accordingly. This growth will require the latest technologies, including the emerging flexography. DuPont hopes to influence the transition from rotogravure to flexography by sharing expertise and knowledge with China’s leading academic institutions.
In Wilmington, after a general introduction to the world of flexographic technology, the visitors received the latest updates on the Cyrel® DigiCorr system, the newest system for high quality corrugated printing. Corrugated is a large and growing flexogrpahic application in China. The visitors also learned about Cyrel® FAST round, which is the solvent-free technology soon-to-be offered on a broader scale throughout China.
The DuPont Cyrel® team was delighted to host the distinguished visitors from China and looks forward to sharing its knowledge and applications expertise in the future. “DuPont is pleased to help expand the knowledge and use of flexography in China,” said “Mr. Flexo” Mark R. Mazur, the Digital Prepress Consultant of DuPont.
*Prof. Xu Wencai is also president of the China Rotogravure Association and vice president of the China Flexography Association
