Flexo: fruitful encounters

More than three hundred took part in Flexo Day 2011, which was held on November 16th and organized by Atif (the Italian Technical Association for the development of Flexo-printing, as part of Assografici) at the University Carlo Cattaneo in Castellanza. Updates on products and techniques in the fields of preprinting, printing and management were many and substantial. We mention Attilio Boccardo’s, that covered the Guidelines on correct flexo processing (with new versions available of the documents on quality control systems, the conditions for a correct assessment of colors in trials and prints, the reproduction material); Enzo Colapinto, RadTech’s representative in Italy and IST’s managing director, on the formulation of inks for flexo and UV offset, food safety testing and, above all, their proper use according to the type of support and application; Andrea Dalla Valle with his interesting and detailed examination of the flexo printing work cycle, starting from the correct preparation of the machine; Carlo Carnelli of Color Consulting on the progress and the advantages of a digitalised transmission of information covering color measurement and the new features introduced by the new Pantone Plus selection; Marco Tortelotti of Rossini SpA who presented the automatic drum washing system “Rossini Evolution”.
