Web Industries, an outsource converting and manufacturing solutions provider, has expanded its printing capacity through equipment upgrades at its facility in Dallas, TX. These upgrades add high-speed flexographic printing with tight dimensional pattern registration and precision inline slitting to the facility’s existing flexible material converting assets, giving Web Dallas the ability to print and convert large rolls of material in a single operation.
The printer improvements allow Web Dallas to offer high-speed, wide-web, one-color flexo printing that can hold complex graphics without image bleed-through on nonwovens as light as 10gsm and on papers. The 60" press at Dallas joins the 90" press at Web Industries Fort Wayne in providing customers the opportunity to print registered and non-registered patterns and slit inline to multiple widths depending on end-use needs, eliminating unnecessary manufacturing steps and reducing overall costs.
“There are many market applications where complex printing registration is critical to the finished product’s branding. Our in-depth experience and expertise in printing on nonwovens and our 90" and 60" presses provide a combination of scale and precision that is a good fit for our customers’ varying substrate widths and geographical needs,” says Claudio Hanna, Web Industries’ director of sales for consumer products. “When you combine that capacity with our inline converting processes like slitting, spooling, and lamination, we offer cost-effective manufacturing solutions that provide value to our customers while allowing them to really deliver a graphically differentiated product.”
This printing capability expansion at Dallas, combined with recent equipment upgrades at Fort Wayne, will keep Web positioned as a preeminent outsource converting and manufacturing partner for home, personal care, and medical product companies.
