FFP’s New Print Investment Increases Capacity and Reduces Environmental Impact

FFP’s New Print Investment Increases Capacity and Reduces Environmental Impact

FFP is adding to an already impressive portfolio of flexographic presses with a brand new 8-colour Windmoeller and Hoelscher MIraflex. The multi-million pound investment also includes a complete solvent distillation plant, allowing FFP to offer the flexibility and responsiveness that their customers expect while reducing solvent usage and environmental impact.

The impetus for the new investment has come from increased market demand. In uncertain economic times, companies have recognised the importance of guaranteeing continuity of supply by purchasing from well-established and reliable suppliers, and FFP has been able to win substantial new business with a number of major food brands. The new press will allow FFP to continue to offer customers the excellent print quality and flexibility that they have come to expect while at the same time giving FFP room for further sales expansion.

The Miraflex press as specified by FFP includes a range of advanced features, including automatic wash-up, ink viscosity control, impression and register setting, all of which lead to quick and efficient set up and changeover. The extensive use of carbon fibre leads to the lightness and rigidity needed for consistent, high quality print. FFP have even specified a 42” video monitor so that the full width of the print web can be checked simultaneously.

As part of FFP’s investment, new solvent distillation equipment means that 90% of the solvent used in the print process is regenerated to be used again; supporting FFP’s commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and building on the environmental standard ISO 14001 achieved earlier this year.
