PaperWorks Industries has invested $3 million in a sheet-fed lithographic press at its Greensboro, North Carolina, facility which will enable many value-added enhancements in a single pass that traditionally take two- and three-passes to achieve. These include matte and metallic inks, specialty coatings and pigments—plus seven-color printing, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The press also can run extended color gamut (ECG) color reproduction which means that in addition to the traditional cyan, magenta, yellow and black found on traditional presses, orange, green and violet have been added for a total of seven printing stations. ECG capability cost- effectively delivers higher-impact graphics by delivering expanded color capability in one pass.
PaperWorks’ new investment can produce high-definition images using 400-plus- line screen, compared to traditional litho press which use a 150-line screen. Higher definition means more vibrant and eye-catching colors.
PaperWorks Industries is a leading, integrated North American full-service provider of recycled paperboard and specialized folding cartons for packaging applications.
