PCMC’s Fusion C now equipped to run Gelflex-EB® inks
Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) has announced that its Fusion C is now capable of running Gelflex-EB® CI flexo printing inks at 400 meters per minute.
The marketplace for high-speed CI flexo printing continues to grow, with flexible packaging printers requesting higher-speed presses with greater efficiency. Gelflex-EB® CI flexo inks and Energy Sciences Inc.’s (ESI) EZCure® Electron Beam (EB) are now able to meet customers’ demands on PCMC’s Fusion C, which is part of a series of flexographic printers that significantly reduce energy requirements by utilizing low-power consumption components, designs and operations.
Gelflex-EB® ink technology offers printers a cost-effective path to gain high-resolution print quality that removes more than 90 percent of solvents. It is safe for food packaging and can be used in both traditional reverse-print laminations or as a surface-print ink on multi-layer monomaterial recyclable structures.
