PolyCello, based in Amherst, Nova Scotia, has purchased a 10-color VISTAFLEX flexographic press from Windmoeller & Hoelscher. The VISTAFLEX marks PolyCello’s first investment in W&H technology.
“We continually invest in equipment to address current and projected capacity,” said Stephen Emmerson, president and CEO of PolyCello. “The quality and efficiency of this press will be second to none in North America allowing PolyCello to continue its leadership role as one of North America’s premiere flexographic printers.”
The VISTAFLEX to be installed at PolyCello has a 67″ print width, performs automatic job changeovers, sets-up and stores up to four jobs while the press is running and is capable of speeds up to 800 m/min (2624 ft/min). PolyCello will use the VISTAFLEX to print packaging for the frozen food, towel and tissue overwrap and pet food markets.
