SPGPrints has appointed Omigraf based in Warsaw, as agent in Poland to represent its rotary screen printing division for label applications.

Omigraf’s founder and owner, Andrzej Turski, has been representing several leading machine and material suppliers in the graphics printing industry in Poland for the last 23 years. The agency will provide label converters with a fast, local supply of SPGPrints rotary screen equipment and consumables, as well as providing technical consultancy, training programs and maintenance. 

‘We are very excited to further demonstrate our products in the Polish market, which is a very important market for SPGPrints,’ said Jerry Willems, area sales manager, label printing at SPGPrints.

Rotary screen printing can be used in-line with flexo, offset, gravure and letterpress to create effects such as gloss, matte and tactile varnishes, vibrant colors, metallic, high opacity white as well as braille dots and anti-counterfeiting. 

SPGPrints’ Rotary Screen Integration (RSI) printing modules allow easy integration into existing label presses. The company’s pure nickel rotary screens include the re-imageable RotaMesh and reusable RotaPlate. These offer stability and strength for high-speed production and their multiple reuse brings long-term cost and time savings.   

To develop and dry RotaPlate rotary screens for narrow web applications, SPGPrints developed the RotaPlate Dev&Dry system. This tool completes a CtS system and improves the quality of the conventional process in an automated, fast and ergonomic way. The RotaPlate Dev&Dry has now also been installed in Poland and the customer has successfully integrated the machine in their pre-press process.

Omigraf succeeds Maxima, the agency headed by Joanna Brzeska who retires in January 2021 after 34 successful years.
