Sam Yamamoto of Asahi, said, “At the show, our experts will be helping the visitors better understand how Asahi AWP plates can improve environmental sustainability, overall equipment effectiveness (OEE) and organisational profitability without any compromise on quality.”
 
According to Asahi, Clean Transfer Technology is a technology which enables clean ink transfer and prevents ink accumulating on the plate surfaces and shoulders in screen areas and thus resulting in fewer cleaning intervals and reduced press downtime.
 
Asahi will also talk about fixed colour palette printing, which uses a up to seven inks and thereby eliminates the use of spot colours. 
 
Yamamoto explained, “Because it uses a fixed set of inks, there is no wash-up required between jobs, and combo jobs are made easier. Also, there is significantly less waste in the printing process, improving throughput and productivity.” 
 
“This is the future of flexography, especially in label printing where digital printing has made significant inroads; it favourably positions flexography to compete with digital printing for the short run jobs,” Yamamoto added.
 
Labelexpo Southeast Asia 2018 is scheduled from 10 to 12 May 2018 at Bitec, Bangkok.
