plates. In-the-round flexo is rapidly gaining popularity as more flexo printers recognize the added value and cost savings of having press-ready sleeves. The process of plate- on-sleeve combines the technical excellence of a sleeve with the demand for a competi- tive flexo prepress solution to give printers an alternative to photopolymer plates and ultimate press performance.

FORUM 2011 SETTING THE PACE FOR FLEXO PACKAGING EXCELLENCE Bobst Group North America, Inc. 146 Harrison Avenue, Roseland, NJ 07068 -1294 Tel: 888-226-8800 It would take a LOT to justify a new press these days. Consider it done. Small footprint. Minimal operating envelope. The 15-S is ideal for modern plants where space is at a premium and efficiency is a primary concern. It's unique face-to-face design enables both the unwind & rewind to be accessed and monitored from one central position. The highly efficient web path also minimizes the height requirement. Exceptional performance and features for a remarkable price. Every aspect of the 15-Series is state-of-the-art, except the price. From operator and maintenance accessibility, to speed and wide range of substrates, to premium F&K performance and quality — all at a highly competitive price. Today’s business environment requires solid reasons to move ahead. Examine the advances incorporated into today's Fischer & Krecke 15-Series flexo press and you'll have all the justifi- cation you’ll ever need. The Fischer & Krecke 15-Series Flexo Press Off-press set-up for minimal waste. Our revolutionary smartGPSTM, Graphic Positioning System, establishes registration and press settings before each flexo sleeve is mounted on the press. This eliminates the ‘trial and error’ fine-tuning of each color thereby eliminating over 90% of all of the materials wasted during typical job changes. Fastest changeovers in the industry. In addition to material waste, smartGPS also eliminates wasted time. When the sleeves are already set, press time is used to run jobs, not lengthy set-ups. Nobody else can do this because nobody else has anything like smartGPS. Bobst-F&K-15-S Ad_Layout 1 2/16/11 4:24 PM Page 1 86 FLEXO april 2011 www.flexography.org
