US-based Hammer Packaging has invested in a new VSOP web printing press from Muller Martini with nine printing units and an extra flexo unit.
Hammer Packaging performed extensive tests on the machine at Muller Martini’s Training Center Presses in Maulburg, Germany, before selecting the new press.
Hammer Packaging president and CEO James Hammer said, "Muller Martini fulfilled virtually all our requirements to our satisfaction and proved that the VSOP is the ideal machine for our business segments."
The sleeve positioning improvement in the printing units cuts down wear and tear on the air shaft in the case of frequent size changes.
Due to the combination of offset and flexo in the same printing press, the packaging company can print unique products in a single operation.
