ASAHI PHOTOPRODUCTS RECOGNIZED WITH PRESTIGIOUS EFIA GOLD AWARD
 
EFIA SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING AND PRODUCT INNOVATION AWARD NOTES SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVED OEE AND REDUCED WASTE COMPARED TO CONVENTIONAL PLATES

Asahi's unique Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer was recognized with a 2016 Gold Award for sustainable manufacturing and product innovation by the European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA). Asahi’s technology enables kiss touch printing that delivers improved ink transfer, reduces ink filling at the mid-tone area thus reducing dot gain, and results in fewer cleaning intervals and less waste for improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
 

“We were thrilled to be recognized with this prestigious award.  The test press run we performed delivered unequivocal results that validate the value of Asahi plates in an environment where flexographic printers are under increasing pressure to both deliver improved efficiencies and reduce their environmental footprint. It is gratifying to have the judge’s agree that Asahi plates with Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer are contributing to the ability for flexo printers to meet these market demands.”

- David Galton, Sales director of Asahi Photoproducts Europe


Correct-Touch Graphic Arts would like to congratulate Asahi on this achievement.  CTGA is proud to be the exclusive U.S. distributor of Asahi's line of ground-breaking Flexo Plates.
 

AWP-DEF
Water Washable Flexo Plates

Providing superior results compared to traditional technologies and even outperforming the latest generation of digital flexographic printing plates. The AWP™-DEF plate delivers a level of graphic reproduction with more complete ink transfer and a wider tonal range. With its solvent-free platemaking process, there is no need for high temperature processes and the result is a perfect, dimensionally stable plate that ensures high quality print registration without color shift.
AFP-TOP
Premium Digital Flexo Plates

Designed primarily for wide-web film printing applications, the AFP-TOP plate gives the printer a broader color gamut with soft tonal shades fading out to zero. With superb press stability characteristics, it is able to consistently reproduce and print small dots and is able to print vignettes that run to zero. It delivers an average cost savings of 18% due to improved overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) as compared to standard digital flexo plates.
AFP-TSP
Flexo Plates for Paper Printing

The AFP-TSP medium-hard plates are tailor-made for paper and higher quality corrugated board applications with water-based inks. TSP plates are compatible with water, solvent and most UV-curable inks, enabling all converters to benefit from Pinning Technology for Clean Transfer. These plates also facilitate homogeneous ink transfer in solid and line work, and better control of ink trapping when different colour inks are printed on top of each other.
