This year, the 7th edition of the Dubai International Print Award (DIPA), honouring talent, innovation, and excellence in their regional printing industry, had this year received a record number of entries from eight countries.
RAQAM International was awarded the Gold Award for Best Print of Narrow-Web Flexo Print. They were picked from among 400 entries by an international judging panel.
“It is RAQAM’s aim to provide optimized solutions with leading edge technology, and to that end the Nilpeter MO-3300S combination press fits perfectly”, says General Manager Khalid Aziz Shah. “This Award tells us that we have reached our goal. Our MO-3300S is very flexible, and we configure it to fit every job, all done in superior and consistent quality”.
Since 1998, RAQAM International has offered label and barcode solutions in the Middle East and Asia. From their base in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the company specialises in commercial labels, ATM receipts, kiosk printouts, parking tickets, and cash register rolls.
Innovation is Key
Khalid Aziz Shah goes on to explain that usually it is very hard to achieve a fine dot with flexo, especially in highlight printing, but with the MO-3300S RAQAM International found the best solution for obtaining fine dots from 0-100%, and the press has given the company access to markets for more sophisticated and embellished labels, without increasing printing costs.
“We always welcome innovation, new techniques and new technologies, and in that aspect, we rely on Nilpeter as our press supplier. Within short, we will add a Nilpeter CASLON Digital InkJet Press to our production”, Khalid Aziz Shah concludes.
