Sunimprof Rottaprint has decided to invest in the new FujiFilm FW-FP plates after a successful beta testing, which contributed to increased productivity and reduced the environmental impact of the printer’s production lines.
The Romanian converter has relied on FujiFilm Flenex FW-L plates since 2016, however, after successful beta trial of new version named FW-FP and corresponding plate processor decided to expand the use of FujiFilm products in the factory.
‘Our clients have many and varied demands, and we always look to ensure our flexographic solutions are capable of delivering to the standard that they expect of us,’ said Alin Neag, prepress manager at Sunimprof Rottaprint. ‘Whether it’s self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves, wrap-around labels or flexible packaging, our 268-strong workforce strives to supply the perfect product in the quickest possible time. We place very high value on customer service.’
According to the company statement the new plate and plate processor has helped to grow the business while maintaining an environmentally friendly operation.
Fujifilm’s new plate is due for commercial launch later this month. It features all of the benefits of the established FW-L2 plate on top of added solvent resistance, reduced curling effect and a thicker polyester base of 188µm.
‘We are always looking to see how new products can work in our facilities and help us to continue to provide the most efficient service. The new Flenex FW-FP plate has produced very impressive results and we are now looking to move our entire water-washable plate production over to it,’ added Neag.
Nils Gottfried, segment product marketing manager at Fujifilm Graphic Systems Europe, commented: ‘We’re delighted to see the impact that Fujifilm’s flexo plate technology has had on Sunimprof Rottaprint and, following their investment in our new Flenex FW-FP and plate processor, we’re looking forward to helping their business to continue to evolve.’
