The Discovery of Bellissima Was a Breakthrough for the Business

Press release from the issuing company

Using ECG helps us to reduce job set-up times, and the number of plate changes significantly. Using ECG alongside Bellissima, we can achieve constant print speeds and superior HD quality throughout the entire print run while also keeping make-ready time and waste to a minimum

Petropack sought a solution to complement its existing print production without needing to make a large capital investment. "Our main challenge was to match the quality produced by rotogravure, but at a lower price point and with shorter lead times by using flexo."

"We identified the need to be agile and remain competitive in our market to retain and win business; we had to improve productivity and process stability while not increasing costs - this always seemed unattainable to us." Comments Gustavo.
"Working closely with our trusted suppliers, Fotograbados Lynch and MacDermid Graphics Solutions, we found the solution to our problem!" states Ariel Botti, Inks, Mounting and Planning manager, Petropack.

"In the past, we had experienced problems with high lpi screens; however, when Lynch and MacDermid presented us with an innovative solution in Bellissima (300-400lpi equivalent) on MacDermid Graphics Solution LUX ITP 60 plates, we immediately saw the potential to address the market demands of shorter runs while also reducing our costs."

The discovery of Bellissima was a breakthrough for the business. "We received print samples of Bellissima on wide web flexibles and recognized that we had found a technology in flexo that would allow us to rival that of gravure production. It would also allow us to utilize our existing fleet of flexo printing presses, making the adoption process easier and cheaper to implement without the need to invest in any additional or specialized equipment. It was very simple!” Concludes Ariel.
