Böttcher Systems will show off its full range of solutions on its stand at PacPrint 2021, with a display it says will support all ‘four pillars’ of its business - carton packaging, printing with hybrid UV and Light Emitting Diode inks (HUV-LED), flexible packaging and commercial print. The result is a showcase which will be a real drawcard for visitors not only to PacPrint, but to the co-located Label & Packaging Expo.
A focus of the show for Böttcher will be innovative solutions aimed at helping businesses reduce makeready times while also improving their sustainability record, says Managing Director, Mitch Mulligan.
“Böttcher’s ECS ‘Easy Cleaning System’, for instance, was designed with this in mind,” he says. “These easy-to-clean inking rollers incorporate special polymers and additives in the rubber to reduce the adhesion of the ink to the roller surface, effectively improving ink transfer whilst also enhancing the washability of the roller train.
“This not only saves time, but means you can significantly reduce your wash consumption, typically by 30-50%. These ECS rollers are available for all drying technologies and in a range of durometers to accommodate printers’ and press manufacturers’ preferences.”
As well as the special roller coverings, the ECS system now also includes washes with enhanced cleaning power, including the Mistral ECS which will be launched at PacPrint.
“To make this product, we took our highest-quality conventional wash and made it even better,” Mulligan says. “New materials not only improve its ability to dissolve and remove ink from rollers and blankets, but increase the proportion of biological components in the wash, helping businesses reduce their environmental impact.
“With businesses in this region among the most eco-conscious in the world, we believe PacPrint is a fitting place to launch the best wash Böttcher has ever made!”
Tailor-made solutions for flexographic and rotogravure printing will also feature on the company’s PacPrint stand, with the proven CAMBIUM sleeve for plate mounting among them.
“Valued by independent printers and packaging groups for their geometric and mechanical stability and low weight, CAMBIUM sleeves are now available internationally through the Böttcher Group with our worldwide production and sales companies,” Mulligan advises.
