FLEXO Magazine : Golden Anniversary Commemorative Journal
THE 20005 FTA's Internet identity, expressed by the URL www.flexography.org, with links to these page displays. New Millennium, Golden Age " N eW faces and new technologies are changing the world around us. Some will make our jobs easier. Others can threaten our livilood. New technology is attacking press makeready times. It's pro- viding infinitely variable repeats, great sleeve technology, more colors, higher speeds and mid-web presses. Digital technology cannot be ignored.Global trends are making everything fast, fast, fast. "This industry is clearly moving out quickly with respect to computer-to-plate and laser-engraving and imaging of rubber and photopolymer plates. Promises are being made for sleeves, cushions and dot sizes, that if true, could dramati- cally improve the whole flexo process. Sleeve technology has the possibility of doing the most to revolutionize how we make our changeovers, and with volume, how we decrease costs." -Jim Feeney, 2000 FTA Hall of Fame Inductee, Survival Guide for the 21st Century, FLEXO March 2000 Pressmen at Global Packaging, Oaks, Pa. study the FTA Technical Innovation Award 2006 print demonstration project on press.
