Printgraph Signed as Exclusive Distributor of TruPoint™ Doctor Blades and QuikWash™ System for Offset Market in Italy
Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Plymouth, MA - Flexo Concepts announced today that it has expanded its reseller base in Italy after signing an exclusive agreement with Printgraph S.p.A. The Italian company will sell TruPoint doctor blades and the QuikWash System directly to sheetfed offset printers.
Used in offset coating applications, TruPoint doctor blades are able to maintain a fine area of contact with the coating roller throughout the life of the blades. This precision gives the printer more control over the lay down of coating on the sheet and the ability to deliver consistent, even coverage. TruPoint blades are also recognized for their safety benefits.
The QuikWash System is an exclusive retro-fit wash-up system that allows a printer to improve the quality of wash-ups and cut the frequency of wash-ups and press wash consumption. The system uses a TruPoint wash-up blade which can achieve a finer area of contact with the roller and complete a wash-up cycle in half the time compared to a conventional wash-up system. QuikWash is compatible with most press models and requires no modifications to the existing wash-up tray.
"We believe that Printgraph will be successful representing our TruPoint line given their history of innovation and distributing well-known, state-of-the-art brands," said Brian Baker, Flexo Concepts Key Account Manager. "I have confidence in them to promote the unique benefits of our products to printers in the local offset market."
