Trelleborg’s printing solutions operation will attend Asia CanTech 2019 Conference, which takes place from 28 to 30 October in Bangkok, Thailand, joining in the 20th anniversary celebrations of the exhibition organizer.
The Chao Phraya river in Bangkok will be the landscape marking the 20th anniversary celebration and many important keynote speakers will be attending the conference, talking about trends and future developments in metal decorating.
During the event, Andrea Trevisi, South East Asia Sales Manager for Trelleborg Printing Solutions, will introduce and share the benefits of Trelleborg printing blankets dedicated to metal packaging and discuss how to select the correct solution to maximize productivity and press performance.
Trevisi, says: “The growth of metal packaging represents both significant potential and challenges for printers, whose demands are for efficiency, durability and high printing quality without compromise.
“The printing blanket is a consumable that has to meet the very specific requirements of printing on metal and the offset blanket is one of the most vital elements in producing work successfully and to keep the process efficient.”
As presented at the 2018 edition of Asia CanTech, the Vulcan Pack UV is confirmed to be the most successful and well-accepted solution for the metal packaging printing.
Effectively used in Europe, Japan and in South East Asia, this premium printing blanket allows excellent halftone reproduction in addition to smooth, solid coverage, which is a key requirement of UV printing inks on metal. The blanket ensures good ink transfer while its resistance to edge marking results in an impressive lifetime.
Trevisi, Continues: “We’ve had a tremendous response to Vulcan Pack UV since launching it into the Asia Pacific market, mainly because printers have loved the stability and consistency it provides on the press. Once a customer has fitted the blanket, they appreciate the quality and reliability that Vulcan Pack UV provides.
“As a leading offset blanket manufacturer, Trelleborg is perfectly placed to offer a wide selection of solutions for metal decorating, such as the Vulcan Deco, Rollin Metro and Metal UV. We have also established a network of highly experienced distributors across the Asia Pacific region and they provide first class on-site service and support. What is also crucial, is that we are able to provide blankets at very short notice and this has enabled us to help printers meet increasingly tight and unpredictable deadlines.”
