FBA recently held a free webinar for members on the new research. Members of the FBA Technical Research Sub-Committee, Jerry Loza of Packaging Corporation of America and Steven Johnson of WestRock, did a wonder- ful job providing an overview of the project, sharing find- ings and explaining how the data can be used. I would en- courage all FBA members to watch the archived webinar at . Mary Drain is the Director of Technical Services at Fibre Box Association (FBA). Reach her at

ARC International Installs New Fibertronic Engraver

Charlotte, North Carolina based ARC International has in- vested in a 5.5 meter (18-foot) laser engraver, which fea- tures the latest technology available in today’s anilox roll markets. The new Fibertronic Control System features the very latest in optical fibres to connect all parts of the laser engraving system. This Fibertronic control system contains all the key electronic and software components necessary to integrate four graphical data input channels. Unlike other lasers in the North American market today, the Fibertronic input channels provide a unique consisten- cy of up to four lasers, with each laser typically creating four to five beams. This means a four laser system can consistently operate with up to 20 beams (polygraphic en- graving). Each beam removes a small amount of material so multiple beams can be programmed to engrave each cell with higher tolerances. This gives the flexo printer much cleaner and sharper images.
