Aniken Graphics, a joint venture between Hamillroad Software, a UK-based prepress software company, and Apex International, a supplier of anilox and metering products, have named Chespa as the ‘phase one’ trade shop for Bellissima digitally modulated screening (DMS) in Austria and Poland.
Nick Harvey, managing director of Aniken Graphics International said: ‘We met with a number of trade shops and have chosen our partners for phase one based on their proven track records and commitment to providing their customers, brands and printers with the best flexo technologies.’
He continued: ‘The partners, which will be announced over the coming weeks, have demonstrated that they are proactively looking at ways to advance themselves and their customers in the market through their investments in new technologies, Bellissima DMS being the latest example of that.
‘Phase one sales of Bellissima DMS involve the use of Apex GTT aniloxes, and MacDermid or DuPont plates as this proven technology solution works “out of the box” and maximizes everyone’s success when used,’ Harvey concluded.
Chespa has developed over 26 years from a small local company to an established group with an international reach via the sites and offices located across most of Europe and the world.
Chespa provides printing inks, photopolymer plates, flat and rotary dies and the prepress preparation and processing of graphic repro. They also supply a wide range of inks, water-based and solvent, and coatings, designed for use in flexo, gravure and digital printing on a variety of substrates: corrugated and laminated papers, coated and uncoated substrates, tissue, envelopes, bags, labels, aluminum foils, PE, PP, PET, PVC. The entire production is supervised by their in-house laboratory research and analysis team.
