Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, today reported that Tennessee-based Gateway Packaging Company has chosen to partner with Asahi Photoproducts and its North American Distributor CTGA after an exhaustive benchmarking process in its search for an improved platemaking process. Gateway operates three manufacturing locations serving the United States and Canada and produces packaging for consumer packaged goods manufacturers and industrial packaging for the food, agricultural, chemical and charcoal industries. As a leading high-end printer/packaging converter and the largest pet food packaging provider in North America, Gateway Packaging is continually seeking ways to improve products and solve problems for its customers. By switching to Asahi Photoproducts AWP™ flexographic plates with Clean Transfer, the company has taken another step along its path of continuous improvement. Gateway also installed an Asahi Photoproducts AWP 1116 PD Processor as part of the revamping of its platemaking process. Read full release and download documents ASA_pr17016_gateway 3.jpg

– Xeikon will be joined by the Flint Group’s Narrow Web and Ink divisions at Labelexpo Asia 2017, scheduled for 5 to 8 December 2017 in the Shanghai New International Expo Centre. The companies will be located on Stand G21 at the show. By combining Xeikon’s digital printing expertise with the wide range of conventional narrow web offerings from the Flint Group, visitors to Stand G21 will find solutions that address all label converter needs for self-adhesive and heat transfer labels. In addition to a Xeikon 3500 roll-to-roll digital press configuration, the stand will also feature a ThermoFlexX integrated plate production system for flexo and letterpress.

“There is huge growth potential in the Chinese market for digital label production, and it is an important market for Xeikon,” said Bent Serritslev, Xeikon’s Managing Director of Xeikon Asia Pacific. “With the broadest range of digital label printing solutions in the market, Xeikon has doubled its market share in China over the last two years, a growth rate we expect to continue. This expectation is validated by the fact that Xeikon customers are experiencing strong volume growth on their digital presses, indicating there is no shortage of volume suitable for digital production.”
