GAMA International will participate in the K show – Hall 4 Stand D12

In evidenza

Milan, 22nd August 2022 – The next K show, which will take place from 19th to 26th October 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, will be an opportunity for GAMA International to meet converters from all over the world and to present its new updated GAMA viscometers’ line. «Climate change made us reflect on the increased need for cool inks – says Sante Conselvan, Managing Director at GAMA International. – We have therefore improved the heat exchangers of our viscometers, which are now able to cool or heat the inks faster».

GAMA products are all made in Italy and they boast quality certifications, such as IQNET, CSQ, ATEX and the IECEx international certificate. They include viscometers for flexo and rotogravure printing, ink treatment and print control technologies.

The CCSone – Consumption Control System has been recently launched on the market as part of the GAMA ink treatment line. It is an innovative and indispensable product that can detect ink consumption in real time through an interface physically connected to the ink container, generating information about ink consumption and the ink level during the printing process.

CCSone is suitable for both flexo and rotogravure printing processes and its operating principle is based on the control and measurement of the pressure inside the container or basin. In addition to ink, applications include cold seal, glow, varnish lacquer and adhesive materials.

«This product has aroused considerable interest, since, thanks to the data it generates on the consumption of individual inks, it can be inserted into the corporate data flow, managed with an ERP system, with the advantage of keeping the entire packaging production process under control», explains Dario Calvalcoli, Marketing Manager at GAMA International. Besides calculating the total ink consumption per product, the system also provides consumption data per printed metre: this piece of information is helpful to calculate the ink needed for a similar job as regards colours, but with a different print run.

Sleeve Storage System: a storage solution for sleeves, anilox and plates

GAMA International also offers a renewed solution for the storage of sleeves, anilox and plates to flexo printers and converters: the Sleeve Storage System. The intralogistic solution consists of an automatic or manual Sleeve Storage System that minimizes the manual operations of the sleeve handling staff, thanks to an automatism for the collection/deposit of the sleeves.

«GAMA International will welcome all visitors at its stand D12 at Hall 4: our mission is to be close to converters and to listen to their needs, for whom we always work to always implement our products», concludes Elisa Conselvan, Communications Manager at GAMA International.

Zeno Zonato e Federica Draghi: due nuovi area manager in Grafikontrol

Grafikontrol, leader nella produzione di sistemi di controllo per la stampa, annuncia la nomina di due nuovi area manager nella propria organizzazione commerciale. Zeno Zonato è entrato in azienda ad inizio anno con il ruolo di area manager Nord America, Sud Africa  e parte dell’Europa e Federica Draghi, entrata in azienda lo scorso anno, da maggio è diventata area manager costruttori.

Zeno Zonato ha maturato una solida esperienza nel settore converting per la sua attività dirigenziale presso Laem System e in Grafikontrol si occupa del mercato grafico e converting di tutto il Nord America (Stai Uniti, Canada e Messico), del Sud Africa, Turchia oltre a Benelux e parte Ovest dell’Italia. “Il mercato del Nord America è molto importante per noi”, afferma Zeno Zonato. “ Il mercato degli Stati Uniti è da consolidare, abbiamo molte installazioni da seguire e in molti casi da aggiornare con soluzioni di retrofit”.

Federica Draghi è la nuova area manager costruttori, un ruolo nuovo, che comporta la relazione con tutti i costruttori di macchine flessografiche e rotocalco e la gestione di tutte le tematiche relative all’integrazione dei sistemi Grafikontrol sulle rotative. Entrata in azienda un anno fa, fresca di laurea, come assistente di direzione, si è distinta per le sue capacità al punto da essere promossa area manager con questo ruolo delicato.

“La figura femminile in ruoli manageriali è una novità in casa Grafikontrol, così come lo è anche nel mercato in generale”, afferma Federica Draghi. “Io mi sento pronta a raccogliere la sfida di approcciare un settore nuovo, dove è importante consolidare il rapporto fiduciario col costruttore e trovare il giusto equilibrio nel collegamento tra costruttore e cliente finale”.

Grafikontrol to introduce the latest technology for print control at PRINT4ALL

Milan, May 2018 – Grafikontrol, leader in manufacturing press controls for the graphic industry, will introduce the whole TQC-360° products family – at PRINT4ALL, Hall 18, stand C08-D07 in Milan from May 29 to June 1 – now enriched with two new components, LYNEX C/S and MATRIX C/S, dedicated to 100% inspection and statistics of coating, varnish, cold seal.

With the TQC-360° products line Grafikontrol strives to present itself as a global partner covering every aspect of the print production by offering products, applications, processes and services aimed at guaranteeing a defect-free printing. 

360° Solutions for packaging

At PRINT4ALL all Grafikontrol’s TQC-360° systems of quality control and register control for rotogravure, flexo and offset sectors for packaging and labels will be live demonstrated, using two rotary simulators. 

  • MATRIX: the web viewing system is an area camera that moves across the web taking high quality snapshots of the whole running web. The 6 Mpixel camera resolution ensures fantastic quality and realistic colour reproduction. MATRIX can be loaded with multiple options such as statistical inspection, delta colour monitoring with ∆E, barcode verification, print repeat monitoring, UV coating visualization and transparent varnish inspection
  • MATRIX C/S: it is the new matrix system for simultaneous display of the correct superimposition of the front print with glue or varnish applied on the opposite site (duplex register)
  • LYNEX: it is a true 100% inspection system that can be used as a stand alone system or integrated with MATRIX. LYNEX can compare live printing with the PDF file that has been used to produce the printed plates or the gravure cylinders. That provides the operator with the ability to verify if the print matches with the original file
  • LYNEX-S: it is a 100% print inspection system for gravure, flexo, offset, dedicated to narrow web and neutral film including all the LYNEX features
  • LYNEX C/S: it has been designed to inspect the 100% of the web for coating, varnish or cold-seal on printed or base substrates
  • CHROMALAB: in-line real spectrophotometer, to monitor the colour trend of all printed colours; the system provides real time measurement and trends of Spectral curves, Density, dot gain, L*a*b*, ∆E
  • PROGREX: a combination of the functions of MATRIX and LYNEX to form a complete tool, that helps the user with each print phase on gravure flexographic and offset presses
  • CR33-CR34: register controls for rotogravure and flexographic presses that ensures register stability among colours for the entire production and reduces waste
  • PROCHECK: a unique and innovative system for a full defect traceability and removal from printed rolls.
