The road to KYMC Press and the results
After years of running Indian make Flexo Presses, Flexure team was looking out for the next investment into a sophisticated, well-proven press that can deliver high quality results on a wide range of flexible packaging materials. KYMC was known to Flexure since a long time and having heard success stories of Indian customers with KYMC Presses, Flexure was keen to explore the possibilities. After witnessing a KYMC Press running High-quality commercial jobs with speeds in excess of 200mpm at KYMC’s well known customer in India, Flexure was convinced of the press stability, capabilities and its potential which was exactly what they were searching for. A well proven press coupled with total local support from KYMC India team assured Flexure peace of mind to go with an investment for their first imported press.
The KYMC Press was delivered and inducted into commercial production within a short span of a week and has been running at the highest performance levels since over 2.5 years. With the rich experience of Flexure team in Flexographic Printing coupled with KYMC’s sophisticated press design, Flexure could explore opportunities in print markets they had previously not explored and could establish a niche for themselves. With dedicated efforts to explore the full potential of the KYMC Press and Flexographic technology, Flexure could achieve highest print quality results with screen ruling of over 175 LPI while reverse printing on PET and BOPP, which even established converters fail to attain with their high-end machineries. Standardizing 150 LPI for all print jobs is an achievement in itself along with successfully using 175 LPI for high-end jobs is a testament to the efforts, vision and ability of Flexure team. The right printing machine with standard High-Quality materials including Plates, Inks, Tapes and an in-depth understanding of Flexographic Printing technology has helped Flexure to achieve results which are outstanding and remarkable from the Indian Flexographic Industry point of view.
Flexure continues to service its customers in the Food Packaging, Textile, Agriculture and Healthcare industry with excellent printed results which are environmentally friendly than most other technologies like rotogravure printing at the same time being visually appealing and at-par in terms of print quality. As a part of future expansion and newer investments, an 8 Color High-performance Central Impression Flexographic Press from KYMC shall be soon added into Flexure’s fleet of Printing presses.
