The new DuPont Cyrel FAST DFUV flexographic printing plate is specifically designed for use with UV inks and is reported to get up to color extremely fast, saving on expensive stock and ink. “The new Cyrel DFUV plate was developed specifically for the narrow web printer who needs a high performance flexographic printing plate for use with UV inks,” said John Chrosniak, global business director, DuPont Packaging Graphics. “As we continue to advance quality, pro- ductivity and sustainability for flexographic printing, this new plate is an outstanding addition to our portfolio.” PSG Renews Safe Quality Food Certification FRANKLIN PARK, IL—Prairie State Group, a printer specializing in flexible film and food grade packaging materials, has been recognized for implementing and maintaining comprehensive food quality safety programs and quality management systems.

Brookfield Celebrates 80th Anniversary MIDDLEBORO, MA—In 2014, Brookfield Engineering is celebrating 80 years of innovation and customer service. The company began in 1933 when Donald Brookfield, Sr. envisioned a new, unconventional approach to measuring viscosity. His experimentation with motors and springs in his family’s basement resulted in the creation of a single speed instrument that would ultimately be known as “the world standard” in viscosity measurement and control. Through the middle years Brookfield Engineering addressed issues of temperature control, small sample volumes and very low viscosities, continually adapting to the changing needs of industry. As technology marched forward, Brookfield answered the call by producing a wide range of digital and programmable viscometers and rheometers that operated in standalone or PC controlled modes. In 2004 Brookfield entered the texture analysis market, providing a perfect complement to its line of R&D and QC testing instrumentation. And in 2010, the PFT Powder Flow Tester made its debut, providing quick and easy analysis of powder flow behavior in industrial equipment.
