New €4M Investment | Rotogravure Capacity Expansion

It is a great pleasure to announce a new milestone for our company: the installation of the RS 6003 HS state-of-the-art rotogravure printing press at our Stadiou plant in Kalohori, Thessaloniki. The 4 million euros investment is expected to significantly increase our rotogravure printing capacity, while further strengthening our company’s commitment to high quality and exceptional service.

The new BOBST RS 6003 HS press is 1 meter wide; it has maximum printing capability of 10 colors on a multitude of substrates and it is equipped with fully automated systems for cold seal and lacquer application. Definitely the most impressive feature of the new machine is the very high production speed, which reaches 600meters/minute, offering increased productivity rates. The press has annual production capacity of up to 110.000.000 m2 and features advanced technology and automation capabilities.

The inking system of the new machine has been designed for consistent and uniform inking with a High-Speed Meter (HSM) roller system that ensures accurate and uniform ink distribution across the print width at high speed. One of its most advanced integrated technologies is the BOBST Registron S 6100 control system, which ensures register control and printing quality consistency several times faster and more effectively than conventional systems. At the same time, the efficiency of the ventilation system and the optimized airflow in the dryer ensure minimum levels of residual solvents in the packaging material.

The new production line will be fully operational within the first half of July 2019, when the final integration procedures and successful trial runs are expected to be completed. With the mission to set higher productivity and printing quality standards, this new addition to our rotogravure machines fleet will further increase the flexibility and efficiency of our company’s service. We pursue a capacity expansion plan, based on investments in cutting-edge technology and equipment, suitable to meet the most demanding requirements and customer specifications. We continue our dynamic growth, continuously confirming our commitment to offering exceptional flexible packaging solutions and efficient, fast and high-quality service for our partners.
