During the presentation of the international DuPont Grand Prix Cyrel® 2007, Volkers was awarded four prizes. Both in the category “Continuous Print” and in the category “Conversion Gravure/Offset to Flexo” two prints were awarded. They were printed by, among others, AEP Flexible Packaging and Velsen Flexoplast. Managing Director Rick Volkers is proud of the awards. “Out of about 1,700 submissions from 40 countries, we managed to bring home four prizes. Our continuous investment in know-how and quality improvement has certainly been rewarded.”
The Gouden Z is the highest award in the Dutch printing industry. The FLAG (Fits Like A Glove) was nominated for the best innovation of 2006. FLAG is a rounded flexo print sleeve out of thin polymer that is digitally illuminated. This innovation results in a price break for the flexo industry, rendering large-scale printing by means of thin-sleeves. Volkers has further developed the FLAG and tested it together with its partners from the printing industry. FLAG has proven to further enhance the quality of flexo packaging print.
