Value sits in the sweet spot of quality, productivity and sustainability, and it is exactly our mission to deliver this value to Cyrel® users.”
Philip Wolstenholme, managing director of Wipak UK, pointed out, “we are clearly very pleased to have won this print award especially considering the degree of difficulty and complexity of the design, which was achieved and controlled throughout the whole production run at speed. We are committed to the DuPont ITR sleeve system, Cyrel® Round, and value the quality and process advantages this brings to not only this award winning print but to all designs produced here at Wipak UK.”
DuPont™ Cyrel® Round is an easy to use hardware and consumable solution that delivers a continuous print flexo sleeve optimized for precision printing and improved productivity. Peter Mulvenny, who is the Marketing Manager of Labelgraphics, a label printer, that is well-known for its testing and ambitious beverage labels, added, “We were over the moon to get the first place award for the best flexo job previously printed by another process - again this shows how well the flexo technology is progressing and the quality of printing and clarity we can achieve from DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST platemaking equipment and materials.”
All DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST plates have the benefit of very quick access and do not require any solvents or additional drying requirements. Besides, Flexographers of all segments are taking advantage from the productive, economic and quality benefits of a fully digital workflow.
