Print efficiency through advanced technology products “WE DELIVER QUALITY PRINT... everyday” “Our customers will accept nothing but the best quality and the best service, that’s why we go the extra mile every day! That’s why we run SWEDCUT® Doctor Blades” Rob Layng, Process Manager SHOREWOOD PACKAGING Brockville, Ontario, CANADA People who know Rob Layng will tell you he’s one of those guys who seems to never lose his cool. Rob started at Brockville more than 20 years ago, his first real job. He learned gravure print- ing from the ground up and today is in charge of plant wide quality systems and process improvement. For Rob, the position is a natural. He is highly organized and has an uncanny ability to get to the core of an issue. Rob will tell you…”At Brockville, we face multiple challenges each day printing packaging for the food, bever- age and tobacco industries. We print on stocks ranging all the way from 11pt. to 19pt. at speeds more than 220 meters per minute. Nothing happens easily. Our success is no mistake!” Rob quickly adds…“Quality doesn’t just happen. It starts with a top down com- mitment and requires everyone’s partic- ipation. Quality is truly knowing, con- trolling and monitoring every element of the process. For years we suffered with common tick marks or drag outs and streaking in vignettes. That was, until Flxon introduced us to their Microkote® blade. The blade sold itself! We have enjoyed significant gains in operational efficiency. Our operators love them!” “The best way to solve print prob- lems is to prevent them from hap- pening in the first place! That’s why we run Swedcut® doctor blades.” At FLXON Inc our commitment is to present printers with unique products, technical support and superior service necessary to genuinely improve their process, their productivity and their bot- tom line. Other quality products offered by FLXON include… viscosity control systems, ink pumps, anti-ghosting cham- bered blade metering systems,100% defect detection systems and vacuum & pin plate mounting systems. 100%
