John Warwick, president of KPG Corp., s aid, “KPG is delighted with the industry ’s response to SMAG tech- nology and KPG’s partnership with a company offering outstanding, break- through technology. We anticipate an enthusiastic response from ambitious printers visiting the SMAG booth, those with a sharp eye on consumer growth and strengthening their position within the marketplace.” Lohmann’s mounting tapes meet higher QuaLity DemanDs no. 1558 Working with printers to help them meet the more demanding needs of customers, Lohmann has enhanced its existing line of DuploFLEX® mounting tapes by providing more solutions for a wider variety of printing parameters. By offering the flexibility of three specific thickness ranges and minimizing the thickness tolerance within a roll, print- ers can be assured of a decisive advan- tage over their competition by creating high quality print jobs, especially where tight registration is required. Foam flexibility in the DuploFLEX 3, DuploFLEX 4 and DuploFLEX 5 range vary from soft for high quality process print to firm for heavier ink coverage needs. These foam mounting tapes are finished with a double-sided flexible PE reinforcement, thus reducing dot gain and supporting greater consistency versus the more typical mounting tapes that use a laminated PET film. Thick- nesses cover 0.015in., 0 .017in. and 0.020in. ranges, giving printers more selection control for their printing needs and going above the standard range. mark anDy unveiLs new performance series press no. 319 Mark Andy has launched newest ad- dition to its Performance Series product line—the P5.

(Visit booth 319 to find out more). Repeatable settings and limited op- erator steps allow quick set-up—a four- color job can reportedly be set up in just three minutes. A minimal amount of ink required for production runs, as well as short web paths (53in/135cm between print heads), can reduce material waste by up to 50 percent, says the company.
