Arwed Löseke Paper Processing and Printing GmbH, has recently upgraded its printing operation with a BOBST M6 LED hybrid flexographic printing press utilizing Asahi AWP-DEW CleanPrint water-washable printing plates and UV inks.
Löseke is a fifth-generation family owned business with a large machine park, including a 10-color rotogravure and a 10-color CI flexo printing press. The company was founded in Hildesheim in 1883, has about 250 employees, and is currently managed by Managing Director and owner, Ariane Löseke.
In addition to the new Bobst M6 inline flexo press, the company also acquired an Asahi AWP 4835P water-wash plate processor and an Esko CDI XPS plate imaging system in order to bring flexo plate making in-house.
By implementing its new extended gamut 7-color LED hybrid flexographic printing press with AWP CleanPrint water-washable plates and fixed color palette capability, the company said it reduces long job change over times and is also able to reduce the inventory of spot color inks for the printing press.
