Canada-based Packaging Technologies is steadily rising its sales figures thanks to the recently installed Heaford MounterProofer which delivers consistently accurate mounting at its Ontario plant.
‘We were getting return on our investment from day one of installation of the first Heaford Mounter Proofer,’ said Sunil Datt, print manager for Packaging Technologies. ‘We run butt-fit jobs and very tight registration of multiple colors. Seventy per cent of our jobs are process color, so the precision of the Heaford technology paid off right away.’
The converter is currently running an average of 5 million linear feet (1.524 million meters) per month, and specializes in mid-web preprints, from low volume to long runs. The company aims to make the print/production process as seamless and efficient as possible by operating a unique complement of production equipment.
According to Datt, PTI has become renowned for the sharpest quality flexo print, and Heaford systems have been a vital component in guaranteeing those standards day after day.
‘All the awards we are winning from North America to Europe speak for themselves. The Heaford equipment is efficient and simple to operate, not to mention robust, and the fact that remounting is practically unheard of in our plant means that we can continually improve. We can keep challenging ourselves, and the flexo process, with more complex packaging print requiring the tightest register on some of the most unsympathetic materials.’
‘We’re immensely proud to deliver that quality to our customers and to know that, hand-on-heart, they have invested in the industry-leading technology that will serve them faithfully for many years to come,’ commented Sally-Anne Heaford, JM Heaford managing director.
