The latest developments for the most effective print
By continuously proactively following and testing the latest developments in flexo technology, we have been at the top of the European flexo market for years. This involves several factors. For example, new developments are currently taking place, one of which is “Bellissima”. This is a new type of screening technology that we use to print in even more detail.
The Machines with which we print our collection bags
Our flexo printing machine park, consists of a Miraflex (8 colors), a Novoflex (10 colors) and a Novoflex II (8 colors). These machines are equipped with the latest technical gadgets and can therefore guarantee a fantastic product. We use the latest cliché and screen-sleeving technology, such as Apex’s Kodak NX and GTT. This in combination with the highly pigmented ink from Doneck.
Apart from all of the above, we guarantee the expected quality though other factors, such as: color management, viscosity control and a high-tech camera system. Color management and viscosity control guarantee a perfect color quality according to PMS (Pantone Matching System). In combination with a high-tech camera system, this ensures a constant printing result. This means that the first edition is the same as the last. KIVO therefore has very satisfied customers that have been provided with printed matter for years.
Good machines and high quality peripherals are not yet a guarantee for a good result. As is sometimes said: ‘you can have a nice kitchen, but that does not mean you can cook well’. A well-equipped kitchen and good ingredients offer no guarantee for a delicious meal. Knowledge and skills also play an important role. KIVO’s printing department has been under the responsibility of John Zwetsloot and Vincent Tetro for years, together accounting for 57 years of experience within the flexo-world. In addition, the department has 25 highly motivated and trained employees who work in five shifts (24/7).
Zwetsloot: ‘In the past, people looked down on flexo, it was condemned as ‘stamping’. This has changed considerably. Flexo has become a real player and competitor to gravure printing. Flexo printing is much cheaper than gravure printing and the quality is almost the same.’
