We take great pride in the performance and engraving consistency produced by our time-served engineers, laser operators and finishers.
The narrow-web category provides a unique set of challenges and an endless range of finishing, coating and decoration options which drives our appetite for product development. More recently embracing the industry trends towards hybrid flexo-digital presses and the adoption of LED curing technology.
The key benefits of our combination engraving (also known as Fluid UV) cover both solid and tone work and include:
Our 60º engraving (also known as Fluid HEX) is far from conventional. In that it can be used for process and solid work on a broad range of substrates. It’s point of difference includes:
As High Definition print is becoming the norm in the narrow-web world we have developed an engraving solution for this purpose. A 61º engraving (also known as XPRO) is ideal for both process and vignette print. Used typically with high resolution plates our robust cell peaks and channelled cell walls offer a range of benefits including:
Our patented engraving (also known as GMX Anilox®) has been designed to address the challenges when laying down special and heavy coatings including varnish, adhesive and metallic inks. A versatile and unique engraving that is protected under patent no. EP3408097B1, among others delivers the following benefits:
High Opacity White engraving (also known as HOW) was developed in partnership with a plate, ink and tape manufacturer. With the shared aim of delivering a quality opaque white for narrow-web application. Conventional thinking has been replaced with an anilox that gives you total control. We can offer 4 different volume levels to suit the text and solid density required. A summary of the key benefits include:
Our High Opacity Colour engraving (also known as HOC) removes the need for a backing white to achieve dense, opaque and strong colours. Developed in tandem with the High Opacity Whiteengraving it enables printers to lay heavy coat weights to achieve the required opacity across the full colour gamut. Summary benefits:
