February 1, 2010

The nine-color flexo press is fitted with inline solvent lamination.

Italian press manufacturer Omet, has concluded a sale with Polymer, a producer of printed packaging in Costa Rica. The Omet VaryFlex-F1 press, due for installation at the end of the year, is a nine-color flexo line fitted with inline solvent lamination.

According to Steve Leibin, sales manager of Matik, the US company that represents Omet in the Western Hemisphere, the inline solvent lamination “is significantly more efficient than laminating offline because it reduces overall set up times and increases throughput. In addition, waste levels of adhesive and substrate are reduced, and there is a lower demand for energy and labor.”

Established 65 years ago, Polymer has five plants located across Central America and manufactures a range of approximately 3,000 plastic packaging items for the industrial, consumer and agricultural sectors. Speaking for Omet, Sales Director Marco Calcagni says: “We are delighted to have secured this order from such a prestigious company. It indicates that the resources we dedicate to innovation are appreciated by converters that need cutting edge technology.”
