Segezha Packaging installed a new 10-colour printing machine in Denmark

Segezha Packaging (SP) installed a new, state-of the art 10-colour printing machine at its production facility in Aalborg, Denmark. The machine was delivered by Expert (Italy) earlier in 2017.

The new flexographic printing press equipped with web cleaner function allows the removal of paper dust before printing, as well as with other paper & ink saving features, which make the machine a valuable addition to SP Denmark production facility.

According to the announcement, following a special training program for the printing specialists and required technical adjustments, the flexographic press is now fully operational.

“The new investment will significantly expand the plant’s printing capacity as well as meet increased demand for high-quality flexo-printing among our clients. Following the market trend toward more complex printing requirements, our aim is not only to fulfil the customers’ high expectations but to surpass them every time.”
