SCHELLING AG Adds New Accent UV Coating Plate

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Press release from the issuing company

SCHELLING AG is based in Rupperswil, Switzerland, is a one-stop supplier of high-quality packaging and displays made of cardboard and corrugated cardboard.

The entire field of print enhancement and finishing – especially coating – is crucial for SCHELLING. It is becoming increasingly important for all printers involved in packaging and advertising. For high-quality coatings, SCHELLING needs the very best plates. Imaging used to be outsourced – resulting in high costs and long processing times. However, SCHELLING wanted to speed up delivery and increase flexibility in order to keep up with the levels of service and responsiveness expected by its customers.

The two companies Lüscher and MacDermid realised that there was a mismatch between the expectations of printers and the market offering of coating plates. They worked together to develop the Accent coating plate. This innovative solution was made possible by the unique combination of the plate and the recent availability of CTP imaging systems that work at 405 nm with industrial high-performance UV lasers.

When SCHELLING heard about the new Accent coating plate, they were quick to act. The plate is exactly what they were looking for – an in-house solution offering the highest quality. Everything was already on place so the coating plate could be perfectly integrated into the production process. An XPose! UV has already been in use for several years. The plates can be imaged without the need to upgrade the CTP system, with the same precision and register accuracy as offset plates. It was also possible to produce coating plates in a more environmentally-friendly way – a positive side-effect for SCHELLING, which places such a high value on environmental protection and preserving resources.

The innovative Accent coating plate from packaging specialists SCHELLING AG is a world premiere. In-house imaging and production of coating plates improves efficiency and flexibility, reduces total operating costs over the long term and gives the end product that special “accent” or touch.
