Our new offset press and slitter will allow us to manufacture an even wider range of environmentally friendly packages.

We recently expanded our production capability with two new pieces of equipment, an 8-color offset press and a slitter rewinder. These cutting-edge devices will allow us to do some pretty amazing things for our customers!

The 8-color offset press allows the printer to use a hexachrome expanded gamut ink set (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, orange, and green) with an additional two colors tailored to the specific artwork. This provides for superior color reproduction, reduced changeover times, waste reduction, ink savings, and reduced washups. This press includes a mechanism that gives AMGRAPH one of the widest widths for offset printing. Additionally, it utilizes a variable repeat for printing flexibility. Electron Beam cured ink technology is employed to eliminate any emissions associated with the drying of conventional heat set inks. This press is a valuable and versatile addition for both cost effectiveness, capacity, and quality with sustainable inks.

The state-of-the-art high-speed slitter rewinder can handle a wider variety of modern flexible packaging designs, particularly new narrow tea envelopes. Its ease of setup, along with its ability to quickly load and unload rolls, makes a just-in-time operation even easier to achieve. The slitter rewinder can be operated in multiple modes including a minimum gap mode for adhesives or cold seals as well as a dedicated narrow width option for narrow web rewind applications.

Mike Drab, our Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said, “We’re always happy when we can bring in additional capacity to better serve our customers. This new equipment is absolutely cutting-edge. We’re committed to being one of the leaders in sustainable packaging, and that means we always strive to use the latest and best technology. It’s part of our commitment to our customers and to the planet.”
