Visitors to the forthcoming Euro CanTech event - 19th – 21st March, Milan, Italy - will be able to hear about the latest developments from Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation. The company works closely with printers throughout Europe to convert its industry-leading Printec offset blankets into products that can be used during the production of metal cans.
Matthias Horn, Regional Sales Director EMEA (Europe Middle East Africa) for Trelleborg’s printing solutions, says: “Trelleborg’s offset blanket solutions are used in every imaginable printing situation, from the production of magazines to metal decorating and from general commercial output to the most demanding specialty printing. The market for printing on to cans, such as those for beverages, continues to grow and Printec is a key brand in this sector. It’s synonymous with excellence in the field of highly demanding packaging and beverage can printing.
“In each European country we work closely with the major printers of aluminium cans. It’s a highly specialized, niche sector where the players demand significant flexibility and quality from the various elements that come together to produce the aluminium cans that will eventually carry the household names we all know so well. Printec is one of those vital ‘names behind the scenes’ that help to enable the major drinks corporations create the products they want to see on the supermarket shelves.”
Printec blankets can be supplied in any shape or size, for use in the production of single, two- or three-piece cans. The formula of the self-adhesive has been developed to precisely meet the needs of can printers.
“Euro CanTech provides an excellent opportunity for the various players in this industry to get together and hear about the latest technology. We look forward to welcoming visitors to our table.”
