Tape specialist Tesa says it can now offer a single source of supply for the entire packaging print process, from plate mounting to end tabbing. The company’s product range can be ‘mapped’ against the entire production run, including splicing, roller wrapping, plate mounting, edge sealing, failure flagging, core starting and end tabbing, “so that the same levels of product quality and technical support can be relied upon for each stage of the process”.
Tesa 51905 EasySplice FilmLine is an example of this. Tesa considers itself the market leader in the application of modern straight-line printing, and this has now been extended to the film processing industry, where 51905 promises to deliver fast and easy splice preparation, consistent print quality and reduced waste.
Another example of how the company has kept abreast of demand for high speeds and quality is its range of foam-based plate mounting tapes, which have been adapted to accommodate the harder digitally produced plates that produce the finest dots. The Tesa Softprint 500 micron plate mounting range was developed in collaboration with leading press manufacturers. The PE foam employed is said to have an optimised recovery capability which delivers dependable results even at high speeds and offers thickness tolerances to support consistent ink distribution.
“Set-up should be improved and, perhaps most important of all, the characteristic fault of ‘barring’ is significantly reduced,” the company states.
