The company was recognized for packaging it produced for Kellogg’s Coco Pops using Asahi’sAFP-TOP flexo plates. All told, Asahi plates walked away with a total of seven awards at the 2015 show.
“AS CLOSE AS YOU CAN GET TO PERFECT”
The judges at the FTASA Award show commented on Golden Era’s Best of Show award by stating, “The multicolor registration issues created by the design for this entry are well-handled. Smooth and even gradations, fine highlight dots and good solids with solids and halftones on the same plate are all achieved with water-based inks. The Kellogg’s Coco Pops print was therefore judged ‘as close as you can get to perfect.’”
THE AWARD WINNING PINNING TOP DOT FAMILY
Pinning Top Dot technology facilitates clean ink transfer and prevents ink accumulating on the plate surface and on shoulders in screen areas. This results in fewer stoppages for plate cleaning, reduced press downtime and improved machine OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness).
