Stork Prints opens tech center in Netherlands

August 1, 2006

The Stork Prints Group has unveiled a 2,300 square meter Technology Centre at its world headquarters in Boxmeer, the Netherlands. The center represents a significant investment in rotary screen printing research, development and training facilities.

The center’s five rotary screen printing lines will make it easier and faster for label printers, graphics industry converters, textile manufacturers and industrial coaters to test new ideas and applications, without having to lose production time or employee hours at their own sites. It will also enable Stork Prints to conduct its own trials, with support from industry partners.

The graphics printing lines include an RSI (Rotary Screen Integration) line with a three-meter hot-air and curing system. Amongst others it will be used for trial runs of RFID antennas. A 10" wide four-color press for narrow web test runs includes all units in the RSI program – theEasyFit and RSI Compact for labels, and a full specification RSI unit for a wider range of substrates, including solid board. Another feature is the Codimag two-color semi-rotary screen press, which emphasizes the collaboration between Stork and the French press maker.

With the full programme of RotaMesh and SpecialScreen cylinders available at the center, customers have the freedom to test the performance of the press with their chosen inks, pastes and substrates, supported by Stork’s technical engineers.
