Flex Pack Installs Flexo Wash Plate, Anilox Washers Colombian flexible packaging provider, Flex Pack SAS, has installed FlexoWash technology at its plant in Bogo- ta to help improve the quality of work being produced on its two flexo printing presses. Founded in 2001 and still owned and managed by Carlos Alberto González and his wife Maribel Jácome, the company is vertically integrated offering a variety of services in-house from extrusion to rolling, printing, and valve inserting. Cur- rently around 90 percent of all output is printed, and then supplied to markets as diverse as food and bever- age, household goods, and medical supplies. It was with the addition of its second printing press in 2018 that Flex Pack realized the need to improve its overall production efficiency. Following a visit to La- belexpo in Chicago and a meeting with the FlexoWash team, the decision was made to invest in a PW82WR PlateWasher and an FW992XL AniloxWasher. Accord- ing to González, the machines have transformed Flex Pack’s capability to reduce cleaning times and brought a degree of automation to the production process. Converting technology manufacturer Karlville, Miami, Florida, has decided to specify Vetaphone Corona tech- nology for its range of thermal laminators. The decision to use the Danish manufacturer has allowed Karlville to offer a fully integrated surface treatment solution to its customers that reflects the quality of its own product, according to company President John Price. Positive ID Labels Acquires Dabbon and Banbury Positive ID Labels is set to complete its second acqui- sition in under a week after it finalizes the purchase of Oxfordshire, UK-based Banbury Labels. The Melbourne, South Derbyshire-based business had earlier completed its acquisition of Dabbon La- bels, based in Silverdale, Staffordshire. Positive ID, which also acquired Tiverton, Dev- on-based Limbus Labels last year, offers low-volume, full-color digital and high-volume, full-color flexog- raphic printing to all industries.
