Amcor Flexibles Cumbria invested in <a href=”https://www.hirano-tec.co.jp/en/manufacturing/equipment_04.html#:~:text=A%20gravure%20coater%20is%20a,substrate%20to%20form%20a%20film.”>gravure coating technology</a> in 2013 so that it would work with our short-run, 8-color Flexo printing process. Customers are now furnished with a variety of perks, including colourful choices in cold seals, coatings, and lacquers that can be applied in patterns or 100% to enhance better appearance and performance.
Further, this equipment is attached to the short-run High Definition Flexo printing asset. That improves the potential to offer captivating and wonderful designs with even better use than previously produced packaging materials. The capacity of Cumbria to offer in-line gravure applied coating to both high-quality flexo printing and gravure printing from a single place is enhanced by this.
To add to Amcor Flexible Cumbria’s might in the industry, they have invested in a high-tech and advanced High-Density PolyEthylene (<a href=”https://www.acmeplastics.com/what-is-hdpe#:~:text=High%20Density%20Poly%20Ethylene%20(HDPE,%2C%20cutting%20boards%2C%20and%20piping.”>HDPE</a>) extrusion facility. Through a partnership with manufacturers of cereal products, Amcor can focus on the provision of packaging material that protects products from mineral oil residuals by applying internal coatings such as Amcor Vodex.
The provision of such co-extruded packaging solutions has improved customer satisfaction by enhancing a customer’s experience when opening the product. Perhaps the most important factor is the added benefit of safe consumption.
Amcor is in a position to offer reduced lead times, greater speed to market, and comfortably balance seasons of high demand through the close working relationship and similarity in business operations and systems in both sites.
