Web Offset A Great Flexible Packaging Production Solution

Web Offset a great Flexible Packaging Production Solution

Goss International joined with ESI in introducing VPak Offset Press Demonstration Week from October 13 – 17, 2014 at the Goss Packaging Technology Center in Durham, NH.

The advantages of electron beam web offset are numerous and meet the two major challenges currently facing the flexible packaging printing industry today, according to Peter Walczak, Goss Director of Product Management for Packaging Presses.

These challenges include the demands for shorter runs, faster job changes and the confusion surrounding the term, ‘short-run’.

“The rise of digital presses for flexible packaging printing moved the term ‘short-run’ far below what conventional flexible packaging converters have traditionally produced,” said Walczak.

With profitability as a main concern, web offset presses with electron beam technology transform short-run jobs into sustainable, profitable and highly productive ones. They also feature higher speeds, wider web-widths and can produce more colors than digital presses.

Walczak knows that the traditional flexible packaging sector is under a lot of pressure but has confidence in the current opportunities:

“At present, the whole packaging market is in a state of change driven both by brands and consumers, but it is an exciting market with a bright future for those able to embrace that change.”

At Vpak Offset Press Demonstration Week, people saw firsthand the benefits of the Goss Vpak Web Offset Press coupled with ESI’s EZCure-CR eBeam system. Contact Energy Sciences at 978-694-9000 or Goss International at 603-343-7359 for future events and additional industry information.
