FLEXO Magazine : September 2011
Three years later, in 2007, the compa- ny expanded again, this time establish- ing a high-quality flexographic printing and converting operation. It took delivery of a Nilpeter FA-3 flexographic press--the first of its kind in the western U.S. - - and state-of-the-art AB Graphic International finishing equipment. “ We’re utilizing the best technology on the market,” says Trail. “In digital printing, we’re the frontrunner. We have earned the highest classification among label printers across the country. We’re in the company of a select few. ” “As for flexo, we made a concerted ef- fort to excel when we entered that most highly regarded part of the industry. From the printing press, to the latest plate technology in the industry and how we run the business with experi- enced employees, we are focused on producing the highest quality.” Last year, Labeltronix took delivery on a new state-of-the-art finishing press, the first of its kind in North America. This press allows Labeltronix to emboss and hot stamp, twice in one pass, along with two flexo stations, die cutting, UV varnish and lamination. On-press video inspection is also used here for quality assurance. QUALITY STANDARDS Standardization is a large part of Labeltronix’ strategy for continuing to deliver superior quality at value pricing. Innovations in how Labeltronix has designed its state-of-the-art facility, and how its equipment is configured, give the company that competitive claim. Holding itself to the highest disci- plines in the world of quality standards, Labeltronix pursued—and was grant- ed—certification for the top internation- al quality standard, the ISO 9001: 2008. Labeltronix earned the honor last year. “It’s one thing to say, ‘We’re all about quality.’ It’s another thing to prove it. I ’m very proud that the Labeltronix team has proven, to the highest standards authority in the world, that we have a quality-driven organization,” says Trail. To qualify for this distinction, Labeltronix created a more formal control program to document practices it already had in place. The company added documenta- tion for corrective actions, root cause analysis, receiving inspections and in-pro- cess controls. A commitment to continual quality improvement is a key component of the ISO 9001:2008 standard. The new www.flexography.org september 2011 FLEXO 69
