Windmöller & Hölscher, supplier of machinery and systems for production and converting of flexible packaging, has confirmed Apex International to be certified partner of aniloxes for the highly advanced flexoprinting presses in the showroom. Apex will manufacture high-quality ceramic coated and laser engraved anilox rolls and sleeves for the W&H printing presses.
Apex obtained this position by successfully completing the “Ablegetest” in the Technologic al Demo Centre of W&H in Lengerich. The test is used to evaluate the clean doctoring of the anilox roll at high speeds, common for the W&H printing presses and it is a major factor in the approval of the performance of an anilox for W&H and the Apex results were named good to very good.
Bas van der Poel, technical sales director at Apex International, said: “We are very thankful for being given the opportunity to supply our products to the W&H showroom. W&H is known for its top quality, innovation and optimised engineering concepts, in combination with first class service. We see similarities with Apex’s vision on the market and the approach towards our common customers and therefore we hope this is the start of a fruitful long-lasting partnership.”
