May 31, 2017

The brand new 10-colours flexographic press from Expert (Italy) has been successfully installed in Segezha Packaging’s production facility in Aalborg, Denmark.

“The new investment will significantly expand the plant’s printing capacity as well as meet increased demand for high-quality flexo-printing among our clients. Following the market trend toward more complex printing requirements, our aim is not only to fulfil the customers’ high expectations but to surpass them every time”, commented Artem Maslov, CEO of Segezha Packaging.

The machine was delivered by the supplier earlier this year. Following a special training program for the printing specialists and required technical adjustments, the flexographic press is now fully operational. 

The new flexographic printing press equipped with web cleaner function allows the removal of paper dust before printing, as well as with other paper & ink saving features, which make the machine a valuable addition to SP Denmark production facility.
