Marvaco moves to new UV-LED technology

Marvaco has installed new UV-LED platemaking technology and completed the FlexoExpert certification

Marvaco, one of the leading packaging pre-press providers and flexo platemaker for brands and printers, has installed new UV-LED platemaking technology and completed the FlexoExpert certification in all its plate production units in the Nordics.

Marvaco continues its pioneering work by using LED exposure in flexographic plate production, the first of its kind in the Nordic countries. At the same time, the company’s new production unit in Finland has passed its final FlexoExpert audit. 

‘This investment further increases our product quality and environmental sustainability of our production as we move to LED exposure,’ said Marko Valkamo, chief pre-press production officer at Marvaco. ‘The previously unseen new LED technology allows us to move from HD and full HD plate quality to ultra-HD screening in flexo plates.’

‘The full completion of the FlexoExpert certification at Marvaco has unified our operations and way of working between sites. The streamlined production further harmonizes Marvaco’s production quality. For this, I would like to thank our team and the supervisors from the XSYS. It required a lot of work, but we all are happy about the results,’ added Vesa Maukonen, head of the Pori unit at Marvaco.

Paul Campbell, commercial director at XSYS, said: ‘We are very pleased with this continuation of our long-term partnership with Marvaco. We brought in the best technologies and technical know-how to drive the success of Marvaco and promote sustainable packaging printing. Marvaco is a true pioneer in sustainable pre-press production and expanded color gamut printing. This will help us develop even more efficient and environmentally-friendly processes.’
