The next big thing in Flexo & Gravure: The Polymount Film Cleaner
20 July 2015
The concept of the Polymount Film Cleaner
It’s simple; The Polymount Film Cleaner cleans your printed film and enables you to reuse this film for the next set-up of a new print job. Instead of ending up with thousands of meters of waste set-up film we have developed a machine, which allows you to reuse your set-up film over and over again. Cleaning your set-up substrates is also beneficial even if you don’t want to reuse it but choose to recycle it instead. Clean film with no ink remaining will obtain a higher resale value compared to printed film.
We are currently in the final stage of the development and we will soon be thoroughly testing the Polymount Film Cleaner in a real printing environment.
The Polymount Film Cleaner will be available commercially in the first quarter of 2016.
The self-adhesive Twinlock sleeves: A hit with French Flexo print firms

In the past half year, two of the three largest flexible packaging film producers in France have installed Twinlock sleeves on their newest machines. Both printers have tested Twinlock extensively and concluded that printing with the self-adhesive Twinlock Sleeves is necessary to keep the competitive advantage in the future.
They will not only save a good amount of mounting tapes (expected € 100.000 per year), the mounting department will be more efficient and the print results will be more consistent.
The Twinlock sleeves are now in operation for several months and exceeded all their expectations.
