FLEXO Magazine : February 2013
STONE: Absolutely yes. These principles are crucial in ensuring the minimization of downtime and efficiency in changeovers. FLEXO: Have you moved, or do you intend to move to a com- pletely automated workflow? What other steps are you taking to maintain a path toward continuous improvement in your plant? How will that enhance your firm’s competitive position? STONE: G3 is currently ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. These certifications play a significant role in confirming that operators have updated training plans that are reviewed and approved. FLEXO: Can you provide a brief statement on how sustain- ability or green printing; combination/multi-process printing; digital printing as a complementary technology to flexo; and Expanded Gamut Printing are impacting your plant and what likely effects they ’ll have on operations in the years to come? STONE: G3 is proud to have developed a 100 percent post- consumer waste paper that not only is environmentally friend- ly but it doesn’t gray out when the wine bottle is submerged in an ice bucket. This helps to maintain the brand identity while enhancing the wine experience. Digital is a technology that deserves a serious, thorough look. FLEXO: Can you please explain the value of FTA mem- bership to your firm and comment on the most significant takeaways from the association’s recent meetings, training programs or printed educational materials? STONE: FTA is significant—it provides up-to-date trends, re- ports on developing technology in the industry and worthwhile association events. www.flexography.org february 2013 FLEXO 49 Experience the science behind the service with Proline® anilox rolls Praxair Proline® laser engraved ceramic rolls deliver quality your printing operation can depend on.
