Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) hosted iMpact 2013, a symposium for the flexographic printing industry, on January 16, 2013. The event was held exclusively for PCMC's flexible packaging printing customers and unveiled PCMC's advanced printing press, the ELS MAX.
iMpact 2013 welcomed more than 150 visitors to PCMC’s global headquarters in Green Bay. “PCMC’s iMpact show was first class all the way through," said Paul Teachout, Technical/OEM manager, Harper Graphics Solutions, adding, "and your press is incredible!"
Guests enjoyed an opening day presentation and words from Steve Kemp, president of Paper Converting Machine Company, highlighting the leadership principles and practices that drive PCMC. Participants learned how PCMC differs from the average manufacturing company and strives to secure its reputation as a great American machinery company.
The event also showcased PCMC’s new ELS MAX in-line flexographic printing press, which unites in-line and wide web CI press technology. The ELS MAX was designed to be the first truly gearless midrange flexographic printing press available in the industry today. The ELS MAX is fast and efficient, offering 24”, 28” and 32” web widths capable of running up to 1000 FPM with up to a 30” maximum repeat. Plate and anilox sleeves further increase changeover speeds, and the ELS MAX is designed with Rockwell control technology, ensuring customers of its trustworthiness and reliability.
Visitors agreed that PCMC has exceeded market expectations with the new ELS MAX press. “The press was awesome…totally amazing," added Mike Willeford, president and CEO of Wind Walker Label.
