Saudi Arabian printer reconfigures commercial web offset press for flexible packaging

The web offset Vision press at Abaker was originally manufactured for the production of business forms

DG press ServiceS and Abaker Printing Company, Saudi Arabia have come to an agreement to modify a Vision web offset printing press, currently used for commercial printing, to suit flexible packaging.

The decision has been made based on the rapidly changing market of the printing industry in which the demand for packaging, particularly flexibles, is increasing, according to DG press ServiceS.

The Vision press was originally manufactured for the production of business forms. Utilizing the press’ modular design, web tension and flexo modules are to be integrated allowing it to be modified for the production of flexible packaging. As a result, the reconfigured press will combine flexo and offset printing for converting flexible substrates.
