Winpak Installs North America’s First CrystalCleanConnect

Winpak Ltd., Winnipeg, Canada, is the first in North America to install Asahi Photoproducts’s CrystalClearConnect automated flexo platemaking system at its Winpak Films business unit in Senoia, Georgia. 

This automated system was co-developed with Esko and Kongsberg. 

With CrystalCleanConnect, press-ready plates are reportedly prepared in a single step, reducing operator interventions normally required in a 12-step traditional plate production.

Winpak Ltd. is a $1.2 billion packaging company that manufactures and distributes packaging materials and related packaging machines. The company uses solvent-based inks in the production of wide web flexible packaging. Its products are used primarily for the protection of perishable foods and beverages, including thermoformed cups and lids, flexible films, meat trays and covers, and other packaging comprised of flexible and rigid substrates. The company manufactures several solutions for healthcare as well. Winpak operates twelve production facilities in Canada, the United States and Mexico.
