Flexo Press for EB WetFlex Launched in Germany


WILMINGTON, MA—UV-Flex GmbH held an open house event on April 18-19 to feature Fischer & Krecke's first CI flexo press designed to use Sun Chemical's EB curable WetFlex ink technology.

The 10-color press, designated FLEXPRESS 16S, applies wet-on-wet EB-curable inks and/or adhesives that are cured instantly once they pass through the EZCure EB unit.
