Mark Andy France has installed a six-color Scout in the print training department of one of France’s oldest and well knownschools, École Supérieure Estienne des Arts et Industries Graphiques, in Paris.
Founded in 1889 as a school for book printers with affiliations to typesetting and bookbinding, the establishment saw major changes with the switch from hot metal to phototypesetting. In September 2003 it embraced flexography at the request of French printing companies, who acknowledge the technique as the fastest growing in the print world.
The new Scout, which is fitted with four print units with hot air dryers and two with UV curing, is the first roll to roll press at the school.
“We were under pressure from printing companies to provide training in an area that was developing fast, particularly in the field of package printing, where new substrates were being developed,” says Michel Mathieu, chef des travaux at the school. Among other industry suppliers assisting the flexo program are ANI Printing Inks, Praxair, RotoMetrics, Flexocolor, and BASF.
