FLEXO Magazine : June2010
FTA TODAY 8 FLEXO june 2010 www.flexography.org • Genetic Transfer Technology, Aaron Lessing, Apex North America • Better Print/Smaller Footprint, Paul Merkel, MacDermid Printing Solutions • Using Ink to Meet Consumer Environmental Demands, Jim Wirth, Toyo Ink Technologies • What’s New With Flexo, Dr. John Anderson, Eastman Kodak • Real World Flexo: No Longer a Cinderella Story— Production of FLEXO’s May cover, Marcelo Marziali, Cenveo MM&T. In another nod to linking FTA’s print offerings with its presentations, Bob Cockeril, Schawk Inc. and Louis St. Amand, McCain Foods transformed the Presentation Theater into the CPC Insight Theater as they detailed the redesign, re-engineering and repackaging of McCain Foods entire product line (see FLEXO May 2010, page 10). In the process they introduced printer partners Rock Tenn and Starflex, stressed brand color management and detailed how it can be achieved across processes—offset and flexo. Their recurring message: “It’s all good.” AwArds & AccolAdes A total of 154 Excellence in Flexography Awards were an- nounced at Sunday night’s banquet where nearly every seat was filled.
