Multinational packaging and paper company Mondi has opened an flexo printing line at its plant in Gronau, Germany.
The ten-color flexo press will address the increasing demand for advanced printing options for films and laminates in the hygiene industry.
It is also intended to offer greater flexibility in feminine care pouch wrapping designs and film choices.
With the flexo press, Mondi aims to offer customers a highly efficient printing service with inline siliconization, which removes the need for release paper, and inline embossing solutions.
The printer features updated sleeve technology and can apply effect inks and matte additives to deliver ‘premium-looking’ films.
The investment will allow Mondi to deliver flexo printing services alongside its existing rotogravure capacities.
The company’s team in Gronau worked with staff at its plant in Jackson, Mississippi, to install and operate the new line.
