Fotograbados Lynch Becomes First Bellissima DMS Partner for South America

Press release from the issuing company

Cambridge, UK – Aniken Graphics, a joint venture between Hamillroad Software, a UK based prepress software company, and Apex International, a global leader of anilox and metering products, is proud to announce Fotograbados Lynch as its latest licensed Bellissima partner.

Lynch has served the packaging and labels industry for over 30 years, establishing itself as a leader in the manufacturing of high-quality flexographic printing plates while also is committed to introducing disruptive technologies and processes in the Argentinian market, working with suppliers engaged in delivering more environmentally friendly products and solutions.

Lynch constantly invests in new technologies and innovations to offer its customers state-of-the-art solutions which drive converter business forward. This approach has led it to become the first licensed Bellissima DMS partner in the South American flexographic market and the exclusive plate-making partner in Argentina.

"We are very pleased with the Bellissima DMS results. Our clients have started to request that the technology is used because of the high-quality prints we can achieve, which promotes the transition from rotogravure to flexo easier than before. As a result, we decided to formalize our partnership with Aniken, which in combination with our technological platform including LUX ITP 60 plates from MacDermid, will bring a higher level of differentiation for our customers: converters and brand owners." said Mr. Diego Zarlenga - manager of Fotograbados Lynch.

“The use of GTT anilox has been a standard for customers in Argentina, and is the base platform for the use of Bellissima DMS to deliver flexo print in a stable and consistent manner," comments Denis Niubo, commercial director for Apex International in Latin America.

Printers wishing to test the technology can inquire through www.bellissimadms.com or can contact Apex International or the trade shops for their specific region.
