Apex North America Booth # 907, 909 65 Washington St. Donora, PA 15033 Tel.: 724-379-8880 www.apexnorthamerica.com ContaCt(s): Aaron Lessing, North Ameri- can director of sales and marketing; John Batistatos, North American narrow web sales director; Ken Ralton, Apex Group manager; Jim Hensley, MW sales Apex Group presents Genetic Transfer Technology (GTT), a reinvention of the anilox roll engineered by a whole new ceramic composition and surface geometry that is empowering printers to their highest potential. Expanding the print range of a traditional anilox roll, it can allow you to slash your anilox roll inventor y in half. GTT prints cleaner and denser, while reducing mottling, pinholing, ha- loing and dot gain. It can potentially increase ink mileage. Run faster, reduce downtime, get one step closer to standardization and significantly boost profitability. See our ad insert on the back cover and pages 147-156. Applied Laser Engineering Ltd.
