SWEDEN • In the spring of 2017, the Flint Group, Packaging & Narrow Web Division, Segment Paper & Board opened its new Global Innovation Centre (GIC) in Malmö, Sweden. In October 2016, Lohmann‘s “Bonding Engineers” opened their Technology Centre (TEC) at the company headquarters in Neuwied, Germany.
Part of the TEC center is the so-called “FlexoLAB”. With this overall concept own products can be developed, processes for optimizing the material quality of the adhesive tape and the printing press performance can be evaluated and future potential trends can be assessed.
Flint Group has now invited Lohmann experts to permanently present themselves in the GIC. Lohmann has developed a new “concept” especially for this showcase, which offers comprehensive information about the product range of the DuploFLEX plate mounting adhesive tapes. The provision of the high-tech components involved in the printing process at the GIC ensures that new products can be developed.
