Flexo Concepts has partnered with Brazilian learning institute SENAI-Cecoteg to advance the flexo printing industry in the region.
The Communication, Design and Graphic Technology Center of SENAI, the National Service for Industrial Training, SENAI-Cecoteg works with its partners to assimilate and share new technologies to support the Brazilian printing market. The school provides two primary services: to train and prepare 16-21-year-old students for work in the industry and provide research and consulting support to local businesses. The course of industrial learning in flexographic printing is a distinguished area within the school, being awarded the Professor Sergio Vay prize for quality in flexography eight times by Brazilian association Abflexo – including first place this year – for works printed by the students.
Flexo Concepts has joined forces with the organization to promote the benefits of its doctor blade innovations in Brazil. The TruPoint Orange blade has proved a viable replacement for steel in narrow and wide web applications. It is claimed to resolve a variety of common problems including UV ink spitting, anilox roll scoring and pressroom injuries. Flexo Concepts’ TruPoint Green blade offers a replacement for steel in corrugated graphics applications.
