FLEXO Magazine : March 2013
Hello, GTT Apex invented GTT to solve a problem many printers didn’t even know they had: unpredictable, wasteful and inefficient anilox ink-transfer to plate. Our “big idea?” An open slalom ink channel where ink can flow. So long, closed cells. Four years later, thousands of flexographers the world over have welcomed GTT ink- metering cylinders to upgrade from their old-school closed-cell anilox rolls. Why do you suppose our customers order – and then re-order – GTT engravings? Is it because GTT can deliver a more precise dot? And can do the work of two or three con- ventional anilox rolls on fewer stations? Can enable faster printing and drying? Can even save on ink usage — and is a snap to clean? It’s no surprise why so many call GTT their “secret weapon.” But don’t get the wrong idea: we love anilox. It’s our breadandbutter. In fact,we actually pioneered 60° hexagonanilox geometry. And as the world’s largest anilox manu- facturer, we’vesoldover400,000UltraCell® anilox rolls since 1989. What sets UltraCell anilox apart is Apex’s continual innovation: our UltraMelt laser engraving, nickel corrosion barriers, new super-dense ceramics and advanced QC/QA. Among other things – like prompt delivery. But enough about us. See for yourself what so many of your competitors already know: GTT and UltraCell can help you print better, faster and more profitably. Start counting on Apex – and count on quality. Download the facts today. Or just ask for your quote. ® Friends, the numbers are in. And they prove our new way of moving ink to plate has made many people happy. Very happy, evidently. As of December, Apex has sold 33,591 patented GTT ink-metering cylinders worldwide. ( Wow. That’s a lot of printers counting on GTT. ) Click. Click. Click...
