Flint Group Narrow Web unveils new products

Flint’s stand at Labelexpo Europe 2019

During Labelexpo Europe 2019, Flint Group Narrow Web will demonstrate its latest advances to Vivo Colour Solutions, showcase the newest inks and coatings for food packaging applications, and unveil recent developments in its UV LED curing portfolio, including its Dual-Cure technology. Also on display at stand 5C28 will be several examples of flexible packaging constructions as well as prints made from Flint’s full portfolio of UV curable inks.

VivoColour Solutions became commercially available to Flint Group Narrow Web customers in early 2019. Since then the web-based system, which is designed to increase the converter’s color accuracy and reduce press downtime and substrate waste, has been expanded to include 180,000 ink formulations and pantone references. Additionally, Vivo Colour Solutions is now designed to feed formulations directly to ink dispensing equipment. These advancements help converters meet every possible color matching demand from designers and brand owners, says the company.

Flint Group Narrow Web will also introduce its latest developments, including Dual-Cure capability, to its UV LED ink and food packaging compliant portfolios. UV LED technology can increase a converter’s press productivity and lower energy consumption, therefore delivering significant savings. 

Henrik Bernquist, product manager, explained: ‘The UV LED technology (lamps and our inks) enables higher printing speeds, quicker job changes and less waste, 50 percent reduction in energy consumption, and importantly, a reliable and consistent cure. This is particularly important when printing products for food packaging. Additionally, our Dual-Cure offering means that converters who have presses with both mercury and LED lamps need only one ink series for both kinds of cure. This simplifies the inventory management for our customers.’

Niklas Olsson, business development manager, said: ‘Our mission at Labelexpo is to help converters expand their capabilities in the world of narrow web printing and find new revenue streams and business inspiration. With our unique product portfolio and our deeper understanding of our customers’ needs, we are dedicated to becoming the “go-to” advisor for the label and packaging industries. We offer a complete range of the latest inks and advanced color management services for any narrow web printing technique, and take great pride in the high and consistent quality of our press-ready products. We are pleased to attend Labelexpo Europe in its 40thanniversary year.’
