Rotogravure printing has a tradition of over 50 years at Chemosvit, which is a guarantee of gained knowledge and experience, but it also involves responsibility.
At a time when more emphasis is put on speed and flexibility, Chemosvit wants to react flexibly to changes in the production plan and the creation of back-up capacity so that a possible failure could not negatively impact the negotiated contracts.
The new 11-colour rotogravure printing machine, which is a significant investment in technological resources, aims to improve the flexibility and overall performance of the rotogravure department.
It is a state-of-the-art machine with a number of assistance systems to help produce packaging of the highest quality and efficiency.
The 11-colour rotogravure printing machine replaced the 8-colour printing machine, which was no longer technically capable of meeting the increasingly demanding requirements of the market and unable to produce a sufficient product portfolio.
Thanks to the new machine, Chemosvit is ready for upcoming challenges. One of them is more eco-friendly packaging solutions, which represent the cornerstone of the department’s performance with the ability to cost-effectively print the complete range of current and future product ranges.
The 11-colour rotogravure printing machine that represents an investment of €4.5 million is intended for demanding customers around the world. It is used for large orders up to 20 tons, which are printed in hundreds of thousands of meters.
Members of the board of directors and the supervisory board met on the ceremonial launch of the new 11-colour machine a year ago. After a discussion in the Spolcentrum hotel, the participants made their way to the production premises where the machine is located.
Those present were welcomed by Ing. Jaroslav Mervart, chairman of the board of directors, who expressed deep gratitude for the long-term cooperation, trust and also for the participation of individual representatives in his speech. Ing. Michal Ľach, chairman of the supervisory board of the Chemosvit Group, Ing. Vladimír Balog, chairman of the board of directors of Finchem, a.s., and Peter Steinbeck, representative of Windmöller & Hölscher, cut the ribbon.
After one year of use, we can say that this machine has delivered significant benefits to Chemosvit. It has allowed us to shorten the production time of larger orders, thanks to what we can deliver them in a much shorter time. At the same time, we can reduce energy consumption.
