A Great Success for the Future of Flexo

OMET, Durst, Nazdar, Flexografix, and 11 other partners promoted the “Innovation Days” on Wednesday and Thursday May 22nd and 23rd at OMET Americas headquarters in Elk Grove Village, IL, to exhibit industry changing technology.

The Future of Flexo initiative continues with an extremely successful Open House Wednesday, May 22nd and Thursday May 23rd. OMET America’s focus for the two days was to showcase the new technology using the OMET XJet powered by Durst.

Chris Baldwin, Director of Sales and Marketing, kicked off the event by introducing OMET and explaining the partnership between OMET and Durst. Baldwin stated, “Our open house was a great success! It was exciting to share the OMET XJet press with all of our friends and partners”.

Two live demos were running each day to display the outstanding performance of the OMET XJet as well as exhibit the results. The first job demonstrated how close you can match a flexo printed image and a digital inkjet image using Bellissima DMS screening and the RSC technology. Guests attending the demos had difficulty distinguishing the differences between the flexo printed images and the digital printed images. The second demo was even more impressive as they showed a high percentage shrink sleeve job using the OMET XJet Hybrid.

Bob McJury of TLF Graphics gave an outstanding client testimonial stating that, “New business found us” when they added the Durst Tau 330 to their company. Since the addition, TLF Graphics has been able to expand their qualified materials from 30 to 70 in just a few years. McJury finished his speech with a smile, “We don’t have any other supplier that treats us with as much courtesy, respect, and speed as Durst.”

OMET has an outstanding partnership with Ken Pavett, CEO of Flexografix and Tony Parsons, OEM Technical Services Representative of Nazdar which helped ensure the great achievement of the two demos. The success for this open house is also to be shared with the following partners who participated in the event: Apex, Avery Dennison, Durst, GEW, Grafikontrol, Flexografix, Flexowash, Hamilroad, Kocher + Beck, Nazdar, Rossini, Rotometrics, Tesa, Tresu, and Vetaphone.

Un grande successo per l’iniziativa “Future of Flexo”

OMET, Durst, Nazdar, Flexografix e altri 11 partner hanno promosso gli “Innovation Days” mercoledì 22 e giovedì 23 maggio presso la sede di OMET Americas a Elk Grove Village (Illinois), dove hanno mostrato una tecnologia rivoluzionaria per il settore.

L’iniziativa Future of Flexo prosegue la sua crescita con un Open house di grande successo, svolto il 22 e 23 maggio. Il focus dell’evento è stata la dimostrazione delle nuove tecnologie disponibili sulla OMET XJet powered by Durst.

Chris Baldwin, responsabile Sales and Marketing per OMET Americas, ha dato il via all’evento presentando OMET e la partnership con Durst. “Il nostro open house è un grande successo – ha detto Baldwin -. È stato emozionante condividere ciò che può fare la OMET XJet con amici e partner”.

Due live-demo ogni giorno hanno dimostrato le straordinarie prestazioni della OMET XJet e i suoi risultati di stampa. Il primo lavoro ha mostrato quanto sia possibile avvicinare la qualità di un’immagine stampata in digitale ad una in flexo utilizzando le tecnologie Bellissima DMS e RSC. Gli ospiti avevano difficoltà a distinguere le immagini stampate in flexo e quelle stampate in digitale. La seconda demo è stata ancora più impressionante, con un lavoro ad alta copertura di inchiostro su shrink sleeves realizzato con la OMET XJet Hybrid.

Bob McJury di TLF Graphics ha dato una straordinaria testimonianza come cliente, affermando “il nuovo business ci ha trovati” dopo aver inserito la tecnologia Durst Tau 330 in azienda. Da allora, TLF Graphics ha aumentato la gamma di materiali qualificati in pochi anni. McJury ha concluso con un sorriso: “Nessun altro fornitore ci tratta con la cortesia, rispetto e velocità di Durst”.

OMET vanta una grande partnership con Ken Pavett, CEO di Flexografix e Tony Parsons, OEM Technical Services Representative di Nazdar, che hanno contribuito a garantire il successo delle due demo. La buona riuscita dell’open house è anche da condividere con i seguenti partner che hanno supportato l’evento: Apex, Avery Dennison, Durst, GEW, Grafikontrol, Flexografix, Flexowash, Hamilroad, Kocher + Beck, Nazdar, Rossini, Rotometrics, Tesa, Tresu e Vetaphone.
