Flexo Frühstück event at GSE

Initiated by U. Günther Prepress and Follmann, the Flexo Frühstück events offer flexo printers an inspiring platform to discuss topics such as printing quality, process efficiency and value chain sustainability with industry experts. Focusing on the latest innovations, the events provide an opportunity for participants  to learn and exchange ideas. 

Each Flexo Frühstück | Expert Forum has its own theme. In March 2022, GSE hosted the “Future-proofing the ink workflow” event.

Flexo print perfection
Flexo Frühstuck, hosted by GSE, demonstrated advances all along the flexo workflow – in ink logistics, plate quality, water-based inks and colour formulation – driven by the quest for ‘continuous improvement.’

Colour matching – simplified and automated
Matthias Haidt, solution architect, X-rite, explains how to automatically measure colour, generate recipes, make corrections and export that data to the ink dispenser, with a spectrophotometer and software.

Water-based flexo ink for flexible film: a sustainability gain
Follman accelerates the switch to sustainable water-based inks to flexible film with the help of GSE’s dispensing system for large volume colour samples. Isolde Bachert, director R+D,  Folllman, explains.

Water-washable flexo plates cut out waste and boost quality
New plates achieve 270L/cm and offer clean, efficient, solvent-free processing, reveals Peter Tarnowski, managing director, U Günther Prepress.

Lean and Industry 4.0 makes suppliers more responsive and competitive
With efficient processes, automation technology and cloud connectivity, suppliers bring good, sustainable products to customers exactly when they’re needed, says Jannes Slomp, of HAN University of Applied Sciences.

Lean ink logistics cuts waste and eco-footprint – and maximizes customer value
Future proof your ink workflow through automated ink dispensing, colour management, tabletop proofing and business process integration, advises GSE’s Maarten Hummelen.
