As you see problems, you solve them. FLEXO: What color management and control applications/procedures do you employ in an effort to maintain design and brand color integrity? MOWBRAY: Graphic Flexible Packag- ing employs a number of lighting appli- cations including an X-Rite light booth. We strive to stay within the industry standards FLEXO: Do LEAN manufacturing prin- ciples have a place in your plant? Why/ why not? MOWBRAY: Graphic Flexible Packag- ing is a LEAN manufacturer. FLEXO: Can you please explain the value of FTA membership to your firm and comment on the most significant takeaways from the association’s recent meetings, training programs or printed educational materials? MOWBRAY: Graphic Flexible Packaging loves it. Seeing the things that are going on—reading the FLEXO articles—keeps someone aware of new things that are around the corner. Also, I appreciate sharing pieces with the rest of the team on how successful other places are after implementing best practices. Many of the focal points in FLEXO articles are practical to our everyday operation. It’s not something we have to figure out on our own. We aren’t alone – there’s a foundation dedicated to sharing and networking that knowledge. www.flexography.org february 2013 FLEXO 47 Anilox/ gravure cylinders Plates for wide & narrow web Plate sleeves Rotary screens Parts TALK DIRTY TO US... and we’ll clean your: Leading Cleaning Technology www.flexowashus.com • firstname.lastname@example.org 888-493-5396 • Recovers Cell Volume • Safe, Fast & Effective
