The three winners were honored and awarded at the TLMI booth.

TLMI held an award ceremony for the winners of its press guard competition. Participants of the competition, narrow web press operators, were asked to submit designs for a flexographic press guard that aims to assist in injury prevention. The contest encouraged the generating of new ideas  to advance current standards as well as to explore the designs that already exist.


The Gold Medal winner was Daniel Meza of McDowell Label and Screen Printing, Plano TX, USA. Meza was awarded a check for $5,000. James Biefield of Brady Corporation, Milwaukee, WI, USA, was the Silver Medal winner. He recieved a check for $3,000. Chuck Gaulke, also of Brady Corporation, took home the Bronze Medal and a check for $2,000.


"We've been working at developing these guards for five years and have outfitted over 700 machines," said Gaulke. "This is fun, and it's nice to be recognized."
