Live: From photo to print in two hours

Live: From photo to print in two hours

In March, the 17th Image-to-Print event of partners Janoschka, Nordmeccanica, Rossini, Siegwerk and W&H took place in Durban, South Africa, with around 100 participants. One of the many highlights of the successful event: the live demonstration of a job change in flexo printing in record time at Packaging World. In about two hours, a photo of the participants from the beginning of the event was processed in repro and printed by new printing plates live on the MIRAFLEX S in the highest quality.

The image-to-print events stand for the concentrated knowledge of the partners: Exciting talks, workshops and intensive exchange are complemented by visits to production facilities. This time in South Africa as well: The participants were given an insight into market developments, strategies and technical innovations for the global market and in their region in the first part of the event. On the second day, packaging printer Packaging World opened its doors for a live demonstration.

The South African manufacturer commissioned a MIRAFLEX with the W&H EASY-SET automation module just a few days before the event. At Image-to-Print the machine was already running at 400m/min with highest quality. The visitors were able to convince themselves of the record results achieved with speed. At the start of the machine demonstration, a group picture was taken. Only two hours later, the guests admired this in the highest quality printed on film.

With shorter job lengths the time from motiv to finished printed rolls become the important success factor. With this live demonstration, the partners have proven the performance of an optimal flexographic printing set-up: flexible, economical and with the highest quality. Literally from Image to Print in shortest time.
