Charlotte, N.C. – Juan Bermudez, Sales & Service Manager for Latin America at global anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America, shared his comprehensive insights on flexo printing with corrugators during an October conference.
Held at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Guayaquil, Ecuador, the two-day program focused on providing the audience of interested corrugators with improved understanding of basic and advanced flexographic printing practices and insights on inks.
Bermudez said the comments, concerns and questions he heard expressed by corrugators at his presentation are signs that interest within the Latin American market in flexo technology and applications remains strong and growing.
"From my perspective, corrugators in Ecuador and the whole region are more aware of the many advantages of flexo over other processes and are eager to apply our anilox know-how to enhance printing quality," Bermudez said.
Bermudez, in his day-long presentation, outlined the many practical issues associated with flexo printing processes. He discussed how various flexographic options work in combination, the fundamentals of their use and the likely impact corrugators should expect on their finished products.
Also this year, Bermudez spoke about the impact of anilox rolls on flexo printing in Bogota, Colombia, during Andina Pack -- one of the largest flexible packaging trade shows in the northern portion of South America.
