Anchor Printing adds two Aquaflex ELS presses

April 13, 2009

The Michigan converter is expanding its flexible packaging and shrink sleeve business.

Anchor Printing, of Bloomfield Hills, MI, USA, has acquired two new Aquaflex ELS servo presses to add capacity for its growing flexible packaging business. The purchases mark the company’s entrance into servo driven press production.

General Manager Andrew Weitz says, “We have a broad range of printing equipment, including Heidelberg offset presses and an eight-color 30” CI flexo press, plus an assortment of specialized converting equipment. What we didn’t have was extra capacity for the growing flexible packaging and shrink sleeve segments of our business. We knew we wanted to move up to servo technology, so we looked at all the press offerings before deciding on the Aquaflex ELS Servo. We’re perfectionists when it comes to print quality and we were very impressed with the ELS’s ability to hold tight registration on thin film throughout the entire run. In fact, we liked the Aquaflex so much we decided to buy two of them.”
