Harper – Participating in Labelexpo Americas
USA • The global supplier of laser engraved ceramic anilox rolls and sleeves for the printing and coating markets worldwide announced its participation as an exhibitor at the upcoming Labelexpo Americas 2016. Harper Corporation of America will be exhibiting several of its products and will also announce its Express Program which the company claims is the fastest anilox delivery program in the industry for most popular narrow web presses.
Among the products being showcased is Harper’s HIVE (High Imaging Volume Engravings) line of engravings series which will include the company’s exclusive patent-pending Cladless anilox sleeve technology which features no aluminum cladding, lighter weight, corrosion resistance, and more.
Also on display will be the patented QD ink proofing and flatbed printing system. With the expansion of functional printing into the flexo and gravure markets, Harper has developed printing features and accessories that minimize the amount of expensive materials necessary to test printed electronic concepts and ideas. It has also expanded the engraving geometries and volumes for the proofers to accommodate the different deposit properties of functional inks needed for functional and printed electronics.
Also on display will be the new QD Laboratory Master flatbed printer, which features a module construction with programmable travel speed and digital display allowing travel speeds to be set in inches or centimetres. In addition, Harper’s HEX division will display a line of plate and bridge (adapters) sleeves which are specially designed to decrease downtime and minimize make ready. Also on display will be the new RTV sleeve to colour code anilox sleeve inventory.
