Uteco presented new gravure press and made two sales during open house

End of November, Uteco organised a rotogravure open house for selected key account customers, brand owners and partners like Enulec.  Both days were entirely dedicated to the rotogravure flagship of Uteco Group: the Next 450. Both days were opened with an initial presentation of the machine, held by Alessandro Bicego, Rotogravure BU Manager, as well as creator of the Next 450 project and Andrea Caselli, Uteco Southern Europe Sales Manager & Product Marketing Coordinator. Afterwards, a short tour of the Technological Excellence center ConverDrome accompanied those present at the gravure press. Here, viewers were able to see the machine in operation.
During the demonstration, 12 micron PET film was printed at a speed of 450 m/min, followed by fully automated washing of 4 printing units. The job change was done in 10 minutes, followed by a new 7 colour job producing less than 100 metre start up waste, thants to the automatic pre-registration system. This second job was printed on 30 micron LDPE at 300 m/min speed.
During the event, Uteco signed an agreement with an Italian printer for the sale of the Next 450 machine in ConverDrome and the recently launched narrow web gravure press NXS 300.
