Dear Valued customers,

 

Time flies, and 2017 is already well underway. I hope you and your company are on a path to a successful and profitable year.

 

In 2016, we demonstrated “Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer” at drupa, and the concept has been proving itself at several customer locations, bringing improved Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) to these companies.

 

Today, we are looking forward to exhibiting at Labelexpo in Brussels in September, and we hope you will join us there. This is a special venue for us, since Asahi Photoproducts Europe began operations in Brussels, our home city, in 1974. During Labelexpo, we are planning some very exciting events for you and our distributors to add even more value to your Labelexpo attendance.

 

Stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile, we are pleased to continue our dedication to Japanese Quality as we enhance Asahi’s unique set of products and services to better serve your business.

 

I look forward to meeting you at the show.

 

Sincerely yours,

Akihiro KATO

Managing Director

Pinning technology for clean transfer

Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer a flexographic plate technology specifically engineered by Asahi, features low plate surface energy that transfers all remaining ink to the printed substrate. Compared to conventional plates, this reduces press-cleaning stops, creating a significant profitability improvement. These plates deliver very high resolution with fine screen rulings and minimum dots fading out to zero, allowing a broader total colour gamut to be achieved, providing more design flexibility and enhanced graphic quality.

Plates with Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer deliver:

  • Clean transfer of ink resulting in fewer cleaning intervals and press stop downtimes.
  • Print consistency from start to finish with sharp definition of printing text and graphics.
  • A kiss touch printing pressure setting for greater plate longevity.
  • Cost savings by improving overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) by up to 30%, resulting in an immediate ROI.

Fixed colour palette printing

Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer is ideally suited for Fixed Colour Palette printing using a fixed set of 4 to 7 inks and requiring precise plate-to-plate registration. Experts estimate that fixed colour palette printing using seven colours can match as many as 90% or more of the 1,838 named Pantone spot colours.

Fixed Colour Palette Printing benefits include:

  • Virtual elimination of the need for press wash-ups with reduced job changeover times due to the use of a fixed set of inks.
  • Reduced waste, including less substrate waste during job changeovers, with less material ending up in landfills.
  • Improvement in colour consistency, within each job and from job to job with increased predictability as compared to the use of spot colour inks.
  • Cost reduction across the supply chain with fewer SKUs for brand owners and significantly reduced ink inventories for converters.
